Bills Opt for Peterman over Allen As Season-Opening QB

The Buffalo Bills are taking the cautious approach with Josh Allen.

Having traded AJ McCarron to the Raiders during the weekend, they announced Monday they will go with the experienced Nathan Peterman at quarterback to start the season ahead of first-round draft choice Josh Allen from the University of Wyoming. Allen was the seventh player selected overall in the April draft.

Peterman, a second-year player had a solid pre-season, completing 33 of 41 passes for 431 yards with three touchdowns and one interception.

It's as much about giving a chance to Peterman as it is finding the right time to put Allen into that role. The Bills do play five of their first seven games on the road.
