Bills to start rookie QB Allen

Print Article

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Josh Allen has the big arm. He has the size. And, now, he has the opportunity to take over as Buffalo's starting quarterback.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday the rookie will make his first career start on Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Allen replaces second-year pro Nathan Peterman, who struggled badly in a 47-3 blowout loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1. Peterman threw for 24 yards and two interceptions before being replaced by Allen in the second half.

McDermott declined to elaborate on his thought process behind the decision, instead saying it was "the right move" for his team more than 10 times.
