The Buffalo Bills shocked the National Football League world when they chose to bench their starting quarterback, Tyrod Taylor.

On the Bills' first drive, Korey Toomer returned a pass that bounced off Buffalo fullback Patrick DiMarco's hands for a 59-yard touchdown. While the Bills know there is a risk in going to a rookie with the season on the line, they like what they saw out of Peterman in the summer and can go back to a more traditional offense now, having catered a lot of the packages to Taylor's strengths once their new regime opted to bring him back on a restructured contract.

Taylor took over for Peterman in the second half, but by then it was far too late.

With 1:51 to play in the third quarter, and the Chargers dominating, the L.A. defenders pinned their ears back on a pass rush. Los Angeles is 0-for-9.

Taylor hit LeSean McCoy with a 12-yard TD pass on fourth down in the fourth quarter. They also showed the folly of making the indefensible quarterback change.

The Bills even tied it in the first quarter when McCoy made two runs totalling 64 yards, including a 27-yard scoring run for the Bills' first touchdown in a first quarter this season. On the next drive Peterman threw another interception under pressure to Casey Hayward who returned the ball for seven yards.

The Bills allowed 37 points in the first half were the most Buffalo has allowed, since they gave up 42 to the Seattle Seahawks in 1977. Gordon's touchdown came from 10 yards out following a long Keenan Allen catch on the previous play. Buffalo had to settle for a Stephen Hauschka field goal, as they trailed 40-10 in the third quarter.

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers completed 21-for-33 for 250 passing yards and two touchdowns in the win.
