Edwards was chosen the team's starter by coach Dick Jauron on Monday, a day after J.P. Losman was ineffective in a 36-14 loss at Jacksonville. Jauron said he hopes Edwards can give the sputtering offense a spark against Washington on Sunday.
Losman turned over the ball three times against Jacksonville and has looked shaky in each of his last three starts. He lost the starting job to Edwards after injuring his knee in Week 3 against New England, but has started since Edwards was hurt against the New York Jets on Oct. 28.
Although Losman engineered fourth-quarter comeback wins against Cincinnati and Miami, his play has been inconsistent. He killed a fourth-quarter drive deep in Jacksonville territory when he threw his second interception of the game into double coverage. The Bills trailed 22-14 at the time.
In his four starts since taking over for Edwards, Losman averaged only 209 yards passing and had three touchdowns and five interceptions.
