The Buffalo Bills will return to Tyrod Taylor as their starting quarterback after a disastrous showing by rookie Nathan Peterman, who threw five interceptions in their 54-24 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Bills coach Sean McDermott said that Taylor will be their starter when they take on the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday. “It's the right thing for our team," McDermott said, adding that he expects Taylor to come out prepared, like he always does, and lead the Bills to victory. Against the Chargers, Peterman’s first career start was a disaster as he threw for five interceptions in the first half before the Bills started Taylor in the second half.

Taylor fared better as he led the Bills to two touchdown drives. However, Taylor’s efforts were not enough to negate the damage that Peterman created in the first half.

A disastrous start for Peterman

In that game, Peterman completed just 6-of-14 passes for 66 yards while Taylor completed 15-of-25 throws for 158 yards and a touchdown. Taylor also ran four times for 38 yards and a score. The Bills are currently at 5-5 after a three-game losing streak, but Taylor believes that the team is capable of making it to the playoffs. A victory against the 6-4 Chiefs will strengthen their chances of making it to the postseason. In their last five weeks, the Bills will face the New England Patriots and the Miami Dolphins twice and the Indianapolis Colts once.

Prescott ready to face Chargers

The Dallas Cowboys are confident that they can deal with the Chargers’ dangerous pass-rushing duo of Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram with the return of Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith, who missed the past two games with a groin injury. Without Smith, Cowboys starting quarterback Dak Prescott was sacked 12 times in their past two games.

Bosa and Ingram combined for 19 sacks this season, but they could face tough opposition in Smith.

Prescott told Eric D. Williams of ESPN that the Chargers have an outstanding defense, which has helped them won four of their last six games “I think up front they might not be the most talented we play, but they have the hardest motor and highest motor.

They go after it every play,” said Prescott. It will be a crucial game for both the Cowboys (5-5) and the Chargers (4-6) as they fight for a spot in the playoff. Prescott said the Cowboys will have to be more consistent, especially in their running game that was hurt by the suspension of running back Ezekiel Elliott. In their 37-9 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, Prescott completed 18-of-31 passes for 145 yards with three interceptions.
