Bills’ McDermott still evaluating on who will start at QB

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Bills coach Sean McDermott isn’t going to be rushed into naming a starting quarterback a day after his decision to go with rookie Nathan Peterman backfired.

McDermott on Monday said he’s still evaluating whether to give Peterman another start or return to Tyrod Taylor for Buffalo’s game at Kansas City this weekend. Peterman unraveled in a 54-24 loss at the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.

Peterman he threw five interceptions in the first half before being replaced by Taylor with the Bills down 40-7.

Buffalo (5-5) has lost three straight with McDermott being roundly criticized for taking what he called ”a calculated risk” to switch starters while his team is in the playoff race.

”I own the decision and as I said yesterday, I don’t regret the decision. I do regret the result, and there’s other hands also in the result,” he said. ”You go back and you learn from it. I learn from it as a head coach and I expect all to learn from and we grow and we move forward.”

McDermott won’t be swayed by the criticism even when acknowledging the quarterback switch failed to provide much spark to what had been a sputtering offense. And he maintained his confidence in Peterman, a fifth-round draft pick who split his college career
