September 12, 2018 - 10:46 am

After a poor Week 1 performance from Nathan Peterman, the Buffalo Bills are reportedly set to make a change at quarterback.

According to ESPN's Chris Mortenson, the Bills will be turning to rookie quarterback Josh Allen this Sunday when Buffalo hosts the Los Angeles Chargers at New Era Field.

The 22-year-old made his NFL debut last week against the Baltimore Ravens in relief of Peterman, who had only went 5-of-18 for 34 yards and two interceptions through parts of three quarters. In his limited action last week, Allen went 6-of-15 for 74 yards, but was sacked three times by a stingy Ravens pass rush.

The Bills turned to Allen as the backup in Buffalo after the team decided to trade veteran quarterback A.J. McCarron to the Oakland Raiders on September 1. In three games during the preseason, Allen went 24-of-44 for 210 yards and two touchdowns.
