Buffalo Bills QB Allen replaces Peterman in third quarter

Updated: 10-09-2018 01:14 IST

Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen made his NFL debut early in the third quarter Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens after his team went down 40-0.

Allen came in with 11:22 remaining in the third, one possession after starter Nathan Peterman threw his second interception of the game, setting up a 1-yard touchdown run for the Ravens.

Peterman was 5-of-18 passing for just 24 yards and two interceptions when he was replaced. It was Peterman's third career start after he went 11 of 24 for 123 yards, one touchdown and five interceptions in two starts as a rookie fifth-round pick in 2017.

Allen, 22, was taken seventh overall in April's draft after the Bills traded up five spots to grab him. He was given a chance to compete for the starting job in the preseason, but an ugly outing against the Cincinnati Bengals (6 of 12, 34 yards, five sacks took) hurt his chances.

Peterman was named the starter after a strong preseason, and free agent signee AJ McCarron was traded to the Oakland Raiders.
