years Cheap New England Patriots T-Shirt , the Buffalo Bills looked nothing like a playoff team in their 2018 debut.It took exactly one game for the Bills to become embroiled in a quarterback controversy, and it comes after neither of their young QBs played well Sunday in a soggy 47-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.Making his third career start, Nathan Peterman didn't make it out of the third quarter. Backup Josh Allen, the seventh overall pick in the draft, wasn't much better.Oh, how the Bills miss Tyrod Taylor, who was traded to Cleveland during the offseason.Peterman went 5 for 18 for 24 yards with two interceptions Cheap New England Patriots Hats , a quarterback rating of 0.0. He was pulled with Buffalo trailing 40-0.After winning the job from Allen in the preseason, Peterman is once again fighting to be No. 1."I'm going to look at everything," coach Sean McDermott said. "It's too early to go one way or the other."Allen completed six of 15 passes for 74 yards, ran for 26 yards and guided the Bills on their only scoring drive. His numbers weren't all that much, but they sure beat the ones Peterman put up."Really, I thought he made some pretty decisive throws in there, into some tight windows Cheap New England Patriots Hoodie ," McDermott said of the former Wyoming star. "Used his feet at times well. I thought he had pretty good command of the huddle and the offense at the line of scrimmage."It was a small positive takeaway from an absolutely brutal start for a team that went 9-7 last year and beat out the Ravens for an AFC playoff spot by virtue of a tiebreaker.While it appears the Ravens have made progress, the Bills have regressed. The offensive line couldn't protect the quarterbacks, the running backs couldn't find space to run and Zay Jones was the leading receiver with three catches for 26 yards."There were times where I thought we could have been better up front. There was times where we needed to catch the football. There were times we hurt ourselves with penalties," McDermott said. "It's not just one guy. It's a full, total team effort there."Special teams contributed, too, and not in a good way. Stephen Hauschka was woefully short on a 52-yard field goal try Cheap Custom New England Patriots Jerseys , the Ravens used a 51-yard punt return to set up a field goal, and Baltimore scored a touchdown after Buffalo punter Corey Bojorquez fumbled a snap.All in all, it was a performance to forget. If only they could."You can allow this to define you," defensive tackle Kyle Williams said, issuing a warning to his teammates. "Everybody has to look in the mirror and ask, 'What can I do better?' and make that choice. The only way we're going to get better is to get back and learn from it."Injury update: Patriots first-round rookie Isaiah Wynn tears Achilles, will be out for the season While the New England Patriots played a very strong second preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday www.officialpatriotsfootballstore.com , the team also saw one of its first-round draft picks go down with an injury: late in the second quarter, offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn limped off the field after apparently injuring his ankle.According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the rookie’s injury is a serious one:Wynn tearing his Achilles is a confirmation of what was feared yesterday after the 23rd overall selection of this year’s draft limped off the field and was carted to the locker room. The injury is obviously a big blow to the player and the team: the 21-year old was seeing more snaps as a right tackle as of late and was a candidate to serve as the top backup offensive lineman this season.
