Josh Allen Named Buffalo Bills Starting Quarterback

The Nathan Peterman experiment is once again short lived in Buffalo. He started in Week 1 for the Buffalo Bills on the road against the Baltimore Ravens in rainy weather. Peterman was yanked in the second-half and Josh Allen came into the game.

Head Coach Sean McDermott announced that rookie Josh Allen will be the Buffalo Bills starting quarterback for Week 2 at home against the Los Angeles Chargers. This is already dangerous territory for the Bills.

Allen is being thrown into the fire and Buffalo’s offensive line is horrendous. He completed 40 percent of his passes for 74 yards in Sunday’s 47-3 loss.

Peterman completed 24 percent of his passes for 24 yards and two interceptions on Sunday. Nathan Peterman is just 24 years old and his days of being a starter again are most likely finished.

This opens the door for rookie Josh Allen. He was the seventh overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and he is 22 years old. Buffalo traded up in the draft to get him.

Other than this Sunday, the Buffalo Bills have a tough schedule ahead. They play at the Minnesota Vikings on the road on September 23, they play the Green Bay Packers on the road on September 30, they play the Tennessee Titans at home on October 7, and they play the Houston Texans on the road on October 14.

It isn’t easy because those teams have very good defenses, with the exception of the Green Bay Packers, but they won’t be able to match point-for-point with Green Bay especially if Aaron Rodgers is quarterbacking.

The future is now for Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills. They really didn’t want to play him this season, but his time came sooner than expected. The Bills must ride him for the rest of the season.
