Bills Day After: Win over Chiefs not enough to erase Peterman sting yet

The starving Buffalo Bills finally scored a victory Sunday.

They upset the Kansas City Chiefs, 16-10, in Arrowhead Stadium to end a messy three-game losing streak and avoid dropping farther out of the AFC playoff race.

Rather than get blown out yet again, the Bills' defense manhandled an opponent like it did over the first month of the season.

So the result was impressive in itself, but fans don't seem overly impressed with the Bills.

What appears to resonate more than Sunday's final score is the bitter aftertaste of the failed Nathan Peterman experiment from a week earlier. It's difficult to forget the rookie starting instead of Tyrod Taylor and throwing five first-half interceptions in that loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, one of the more winnable games over the Bills' difficult second-half schedule.

Bills coach Sean McDermott might not be able to shake off his controversial decision with one good game.

As long as the Bills are "in the hunt," there's also the haunting possibility McDermott's QB switch will be among the vital reasons they miss the postseason an 18th straight season.

Instead of fist pumps, here is a sampling of how observers can't get Peterman off their minds.
