Former Pitt quarterback Nate Peterman threw his last college touchdown pass in New York City. Fittingly, his first NFL touchdown was in the same state.
Peterman completed a pretty fade route in the corner of the end zone with about 10 minutes left in regulation during his NFL preseason debut Thursday.

Peterman figures to be a backup in his first NFL season, but he performed about as well as any Bills quarterback against the Vikings on Thursday. Peterman completed 13 of 25 passes for 112 yards and a touchdown. In limited action, Buffalo starter Tyrod Taylor was 5 for 8 with 46 yards.
The former Pitt signal caller also added 26 rushing yards on 3 carries.
In two seasons with the Panthers, Peterman led Pitt to a pair of 8-5 seasons. He completed 61.1 percent of his passes for 5,142 yards, 47 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 26 games. Buffalo drafted him in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
