Bills To Start 4th Different QB This Week?
The Buffalo Bills just might have their fourth different quarterback line up under center this week against the New York Jets. Signed to the team just 10 days ago, Matt Barkley appears to be in the running to get the start this Sunday in the Meadowlands.
Derek Anderson remains out with a concussion. Josh Allen is still listed as questionable with his elbow injury. And then there's Nathan Peterman who has thrown seven interceptions in the four games he's played in. Of course not all of them have been his fault, but bad things seem to happen when Peterman throws the ball, so it appears the Bills just might be having second thoughts about putting the ball in Peterman's hands again.
So that leaves Barkley. Coach Sean McDermott earlier in the week announced that Peterman would be his starter but on Friday seemed to indicate otherwise. He didn't make any official announcement.
Barkley is only 1-5 as a starter and he's on his sixth team in six years, but the Bills may feel he might be a better option than the turnover machine. The Bills have scored just two touchdowns in the last four games.
