ORCHARD PARK Marcus Cooper Jersey , N.Y. (AP) — Sean McDermott insists the Buffalo Bills have enough talent on offense to win in the NFL.“I believe we do,” the Bills coach said.It sure didn’t look that way in a 41-9 loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday, in what became the latest comedy of errors produced by an offense that’s proven more capable of committing turnovers than scoring touchdowns this season.Nathan Peterman continued showing he’s nowhere close to resembling an NFL quarterback. He threw three interceptions — one returned for a touchdown — to up his career total to 13 interceptions in just 153 passing attempts, including playoffs.Backup tight end Jason Croom lost a fumble , which was returned for another score.The Bills (2-7) were held to under 10 points for the fifth time this season, and have managed just 96 in nine games.And the only bright side was Peterman’s mean-nothing 1-yard touchdown run scored with 5:41 remaining to end Buffalo’s touchdown drought at 187 minutes and 19 seconds. It was the Bills’ eighth TD of the season, and first since Peterman’s 16-yard pass to Zay Jones in the fourth quarter of a 20-13 loss at Houston three weeks ago.“It was like a domino effect today,” receiver Kelvin Benjamin said. “It just kept stacking up on us. We really couldn’t catch back up.”He was referring to a second quarter in which the Bears scored 28 points in span of 12:20, included Eddie Jackson’s 65-yard fumble return and Leonard Floyd returning a pass that tipped off of Jones’ hands 19 yards for a score.“I don’t have the exact answer for it,” Jones said. “I don’t think I see anybody that’s not trying to give it their all. That’s the most discouraging thing about the whole situation right now is that the effort is there.”Frustration is setting in on a team that has lost four straight and, off to its worst start since losing eight of its nine first games in 2010.The Bills had no choice but to start Peterman , with rookie Josh Allen missing his third straight game with a sprained right elbow and Derek Anderson sidelined by a concussion.Though Peterman’s struggles were anticipated https://www.thebearsfanshop.com/Kyle-Fuller-Jersey , the Bills have no solutions in spurring a running attack that is suddenly regressing.A week after LeSean McCoy had 13 yards on 12 carries in a 25-6 loss to New England , the running back was limited to 10 yards on 10 carries against the Bears.McDermott even made the decision to sit McCoy for a majority of the second half while he tinkered with his offensive line. Rookie Wyatt Teller saw playing time at left guard, while Jeremiah Sirles eventually split time at right tackle.McDermott was vague in saying he sat McCoy because of what the Bears were doing schematically.McCoy, meantime, didn’t stick around to share his thoughts. He was spotted exiting the locker room before reporters were allowed to enter.Though Peterman will bear the brunt of the blame, not all the interceptions were his fault.Newly signed receiver Terrelle Pryor caught Peterman’s pass and lost control as he turned up field, with the ball landing in defensive back Adrian Amos‘ hands. Three snaps into Buffalo’s next possession, Peterman’s hard pass over the middle struck Jones in the hand and bounced directly to Floyd, who returned it for a touchdown.Peterman finished 31 of 49 for 189 yards and sacked four times in an outing reminiscent of his previous meltdowns. Peterman lost the starting job after faltering midway through a season-opening 47-3 loss at Baltimore. And then there were the five interceptions he threw in a 54-24 loss at the Los Angeles Chargers a year ago.“I think I don’t feel snake-bitten. I never feel like a victim or anything like that,” Peterman said. “It’s life. Things don’t always bounce your way.”Benjamin rallied to Peterman’s support, saying it’s unfair to pin the blame on him.“We know how the outside world works. They’re going to bash him and try to break his confidence. But Nate’s a good dude,” Benjamin said. “Unfortunately Bryce Callahan Color Rush Jersey , bad things keep happening. And that’s football.” DETROIT (AP)The Detroit Lions need a lot to go their way to get a postseason spot for the second straight year and third time in Jim Caldwell’s four seasons. ”If we don’t handle our business, it doesn’t matter,” Lions receiver Golden Tate said. In each of the last three games, that’s true because the Lions must win out and hope the NFC South teams in contention have some losses this month. If Detroit does not beat the Chicago Bears, for starters, its chances of making it to the playoffs are likely over. And, Caldwell’s future with the franchise would be questioned even more. Caldwell is under contract for at least two more years thanks to a multiyear extension , a deal the team didn’t announce until months after he signed it, but a late-season slide may warm his seat. Bears coach John Fox , meanwhile, may have a harder time getting a fourth season in the Windy City. He does have one year left on his contract, but he also has a 13-32 record and his .289 winning percentage is barely better than Abe Gibron’s franchise-worst .274 from 1972-74. Even though Chicago can only spoil Detroit’s playoff hopes and possibly alter Minnesota’s postseason positioning in two weeks Josh Bellamy Jersey , Fox expects the best from his players. ”They have a lot of pride and we want to finish this season off strong,” Fox said. Here are some things to watch when Detroit (7-6) tries to beat Chicago (4-9) for the third straight and ninth time in 10 meetings on Saturday at Ford Field: ON THE MOVE: Chicago’s offense ranks among the worst in the NFL, especially through the air. But the Bears are coming off a promising performance in a 33-7 win at Cincinnati that ended a five-game losing streak. Mitchell Trubisky directed an offense that had a season-high 482 yards and became the franchise’s first rookie to throw and run for touchdowns in a game since Jim McMahon in 1982. Jordan Howard ran for 147 yards and became Chicago’s first player to begin a career with 1,000-plus yards rushing in each of his first two seasons. Rookie Tarik Cohen added a season-high 80 yards rushing. ”They run the ball as well as anybody that we’ve seen to date,” Caldwell said. STAFFORD’S STREAK: With a banged-up right hand, Stafford extended his starting streak to 112 games, including the playoffs, in last week’s win at Tampa Bay . ”He takes it very seriously that people expect to see No. 9 out there when the Detroit Lions play,” offensive tackle Taylor Decker said. Stafford became the first NFL player to complete 80-plus percent of his passes in consecutive road games with at least 29 attempts in each one. NO KICK: The Bears have made a league-worst 70 percent of their field goals and are using a third kicker, Mike Nugent, this season. Nugent missed on one of his four extra-point attempts last week, hitting the right upright after Chicago’s first touchdown https://www.thebearsfanshop.com/Anthony-Miller-Jersey , and made two field goals. GROUNDED: When the Lions were a season-high two games above .500 following a 14-7 win at Minnesota in Week 4, it looked like they finally might have a running game led by Ameer Abdullah. The 2015 second-round pick ran for a career-high 94 yards on 20 carries against the Vikings to beat a personal mark he set two weeks earlier with 86 yards rushing in a road win against the New York Giants. He was inactive for the last two games with a neck injury, an ailment Abdullah said he recovered from well enough to play last week against the Buccaneers. The Lions, who are averaging a league-low 76.3 yards rushing per game, will rank among the NFL’s worst running teams for a fourth straight year. INJURY REPORT: Detroit center Travis Swanson (concussion) and right tackle Rick Wagner (ankle) were ruled out after both were unable to practice this week. Lions guard T.J. Lang is questionable with a foot injury that allowed him to practice on a limited basis on Thursday. Detroit defensive end Ezekiel Ansah, who has a sack in two of the last three games, is also questionable with an ankle ailment. Chicago’s defense might be missing starting safety Adrian Amos for a third straight week and starting nose tackle Eddie Goldman for a second game in a row.Amos (hamstring) and Goldman (hip) were limited in Thursday’s practice and are questionable to play at Detroit. —
