Los Angeles Chargers vs. Buffalo Bills Open Thread

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Los Angeles Chargers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Chargers (0-1) have traveled to Orchard Park, New York, to take on the Buffalo Bills (0-1). Both teams are still looking for their first win of the 2018 NFL regular season and if the Vegas odds are right then the Chargers should be the ones to find theirs. The Bills are starting their rookie quarterback, Josh Allen, whom they originally intended to redshirt this year. Unfortunately, Nathan Peterman was so awful last week that they were unable or unwilling to follow through on that plan.

Peterman, I’m sure you will recall, famously threw five interceptions in his first career start against the Chargers last season. He was benched for Tyrod Taylor that game. Taylor ended up leading the Bills to the playoffs, but then they allowed him to walk in free agency after the season. Then, this offseason, Peterman beat out A.J. McCarron and Peterman for the starting quarterback role, but as mentioned earlier that only lasted about half an hour before he found his way back to the bench.

Josh Allen is not ready to be a starting NFL quarterback and hopefully the Chargers even without Joey Bosa can make that readily apparent this morning.
