Bills QB Tyrod Taylor Benched; Nathan Peterman to Start vs. Chargers

15 November 2017

The replacement comes following the Bills 47-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints this past weekend.

Taylor, 29, completed just 9 of 18 passes for only 56 yards with an interception, his worst statistical performance since joining the Bills, before being replaced by Peterman.

Peterman was drafted by the Bills in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott has announced that Nathan Peterman will start at quarterback for the Bills when they head on the road to take on the Los Angeles Chargers this Sunday afternoon. It's unclear what changed in a 24-hour period, as the coach emphatically stated on Monday that Taylor would remain Buffalo's starting QB going forward.

The unproven Peterman will get at least one opportunity to see if he can provide better production behind center, but if he falters Sunday, it wouldn't be surprising if McDermott turned the reins of the offense back over to Taylor.

Tyrod Taylor, battered by the Saints, is headed for the bench.

McDermott in August squashed speculation that Peterman could be the starter by standing by Taylor after he completed 48 percent of his passes for 100 yards, two interceptions and a 27.9 passer rating in three preseason games. He also ran for 12 touchdowns.
