The Bills will make a switch at quarterback for their NFL Week 11 matchup against the Chargers, starting Nathan Peterman over Tyrod Taylor.
In Week 11 of the 2017 NFL season, the Buffalo Bills will start a player other than Tyrod Taylor at quarterback. The Bills made the move to Nathan Peterman on Wednesday, signaling what possibly could be the end of the Taylor Era in Buffalo. Peterman was a fifth-round pick of the Bills in 2017 after starring at Pitt, and threw for 72 yards and a touchdown last week against the New Orleans Saints.
Staying with the quarterbacks, it looks like the Minnesota Vikings will be staying with Case Keenum. The team announced that Keenum will start this Sunday against the 7-2 Los Angeles Rams, putting to rest the rumors that the team would move back to Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater has not played in a regular season game since 2015, after blowing out his knee right before the 2016 NFL season.
Will Fuller V has developed into a nice No. 2 option in the passing game for the Houston Texans, though he will not be available this week. Fuller hurt his ribs during the team’s loss to the Rams this past weekend and had to leave the game in the second quarter. Houston has been lost since Deshaun Watson went down with a torn ACL, but its Week 11 game is winnable, as they will be taking on the Arizona Cardinals.
Mike Westhoff is back in the NFL, though this time it is with the New Orleans Saints. Westhoff helped lead the New York Jets special teams group for many years, and will now take his talents to the Bayou. Saints head coach Sean Payton has been disappointed in the team’s punt game, so bringing in a coach of Westhoff’s caliber will only help a Saints team that appears headed to the playoffs.
The Thursday Night Football matchup should be a good one, as the Tennessee Titans will head to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers. Both teams are in a position to appear in the playoffs this season, making this one a potential postseason preview. Marcus Mariota has helped turn the Titans franchise around, and this could be one of the biggest starts of his three-year career.
