Bills HC Sean McDermott said Monday that he’s “still evaluating” the quarterback position and will announce the team’s Week 12 starter in the coming days.

According to McDermott, Nathan Peterman five-interception performance isn’t going to define his career.

“One game is not going to define Nathan or Nathan’s career,” McDermott said, via Pro Football Talk. “Young players go through it. I own the decision. I don’t regret the decision, I regret the result. There are other hands in the result. I’m confident in Nathan and his mental toughness.”
