This hardly comes as a surprise, given Peterman's performance in Week 1 (and his five-interception performance last year). The second-year quarterback didn't lead the Bills to any points in his appearance and, even worse, didn't even lead them to a first down.
Allen replaced him and was slightly better, leading the Bills to a field goal at least. He finished 6-of-15 for 74 yards. More importantly, he didn't have any turnovers.

Of course, fans and fantasy owners should temper their expectations for Allen. The Bills didn't look good as an offensive unit last Sunday, and bringing an inexperienced quarterback in (one who was supposed to sit the entire year) probably won't change that. However, at least now we know Allen will get his chance.
