Nathan Peterman Starting for Bills Over Tyrod Taylor is a Real Stunner

Adjust Comment Print

Head coach Sean McDermott believes Peterman gives the team the best chance of reaching that goal.

The Bills' benching Tyrod Taylor for rookie Nathan Peterman, a fifth round pick out of Pitt, does not qualify under that category.

Tyrod Taylor is no longer the starting quarterback for the Buffalo Bills.

Though McDermott says he remains confident in Taylor, he decided to make the move to see if Peterman can make Buffalo a better team. "We're here for more than 5 wins", said the coach.

Peterman was a fifth-round pick by Buffalo in the 2017 National Football League draft out of Pittsburgh.

"I thought he did some good things", McDermott said of Peterman after Sunday's game.

Tyrod Taylor hasn't been all that bad this season, but the Bills have struggled mightily in two ugly losses to the Jets and Saints the last two weeks, with Taylor having a poor outing in the Week 10 loss to the Saints. "Obviously, got us into the end zone, so that was a positive". Taylor has a 91.4 quarterback rating in 2017 and has thrown 10 touchdowns to just three interceptions. In addition to throwing for 7,742 passing yards, the dual-threat quarterback has also gained 1,385 yards on the ground. Against the Saints, Taylor was just 9-of-18 for 56 yards with an interception. Peterman and the Bills will face the Chargers in LA this Sunday at 4:05 ET.
