Bills name QB Anderson Week 7 starter

Sidney Guerrero | 17 October, 2018, 22:50

At least for now.

Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott announced Wednesday morning that 13-year National Football League veteran Derek Anderson would be starting under center this Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. Anderson was Cam Newton's backup for several years, while McDermott was the Panthers' defensive coordinator and Beane a personnel executive. The possibility of more playing time for Peterman is a serious setback for the Bills' chances to win games, to say nothing of the eyesore it is for anyone who wants to see something resembling competent quarterback play. However, after Allen sustained an elbow injury in last Sunday's loss to the Texans, the 35-year-old Anderson will suddenly be thrust right into the starting lineup Sunday in Indianapolis.

Though Anderson is new to Buffalo, the Bills are familiar with him.

According to ESPN's Dianna Russini, there is a feeling within the Bills organization that McDermott is in danger of losing his locker room if he starts Peterman.

"He brings experience, leadership, presence to the table and he's worked hard the last week and a half here to get himself up to speed", McDermott said.

Peterman's inexperience and struggles led to the Bills signing Anderson last week.

But with the game tied 13-13 with just over 90 seconds to play, Peterman threw a pick-six to the Texans' Jonathan Joseph then threw another interception when he was desperately trying to move the ball to force overtime. For his career, Anderson has started 47 games, throwing 60 touchdowns and 60 interceptions.
