ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman was escorted to the locker room and evaluated for a concussion during the third quarter of Sunday's snow-ravaged game against the Indianapolis Colts. Also, Buffalo wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin injured his right knee during the third quarter. He returned in the fourth quarter, however. Peterman was injured after he dove at the end of a 2-yard run and was tackled by Colts defenders Antonio Morrison and Johnathan Hankins. There was no penalty on the play and Peterman appeared to hit his head on the ground. Peterman was able to walk to the sideline with assistance from trainers.

INDIANAPOLIS -- With his Indianapolis Colts off to a 2-3 start to the season, head coach Chuck Pagano is looking ahead to Monday night's nationally televised game with AFC South rival Tennessee. The Jacksonville Jaguars are holding down first place in the division with a 3-2 record. But after that, it's a three-way tie for second (or last, depending on your point of view) between Houston, the Titans and the Colts. All three teams have the same 2-3 record. That's why this week's game is a crucial one for both Indianapolis and Tennessee. Whichever squad can pull off a win at Nissan Stadium in Nashville can take a positive step forward in the division. A loss, however, could make things tougher for either team to make a push to the post-season. Pagano says that he doesn't look at the division...
