Chargers pick off Peterman 5 times in 54-24 win over Bills

Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott is probably regretting his already questionable decision to start Nathan Peterman at quarterback for his 5-4 team.

The Bills brass believed the offense was not going to evolve with Taylor due to some of his limitations reading the field and making plays within the confines of the pocket, his unwillingness to throw into tight windows or throw receivers open, and a tendency to start halves slowly, sources said.

The Bills' decision to bench quarterback Tyrod Taylor in favor of Nathan Peterman did not look like a good one through two quarters, with Peterman throwing four interceptions in his first nine passes and adding a fifth pick later in the game before he was eventually pulled.

Peterman finished his first career start 6 of 1'4 for 66 yards and the five INTs. The Bills were smashed by the Chargers 54-24.

Defensive end Melvin Ingram returned a third-quarter fumble, forced by defensive end Joey Bosa, 39 yards for a score. Novak missed a previous 46-yard field goal attempt earlier in the opening quarter. Taylor has just three interceptions all season. Peterman's pass ricocheted off fullback Patrick DiMarco and was corralled by Toomer.

Rivers finally found his stride as he connected with a speedy Keenan Allen down the right side for the 21-yard touchdown and 17-7 lead in the second quarter. On the next drive Peterman threw another interception under pressure to Casey Hayward who returned the ball for seven yards.

Los Angeles took a 47-10 lead in the third quarter and got many of its regulars off the field in the second half to rest for its Thanksgiving game at Dallas.

Chargers: LT Russell Okung left the field gingerly in the second quarter, but missed only two snaps. He completed 20 of 32 passes for 251 yards and two touchdowns before stepping aside for Kellen Clemens in the fourth quarter.

Bills kicker Stephen Hauschka set an National Football League record by making his 13th consecutive field goal of 50 yards or longer during the third quarter.
