Taylor benched, Bills announce Peterman will start

Bills head coach Sean McDermott announced today that rookie Nathan Peterman will get the start this Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers.

“We’re here for more than five wins. That’s why I’m here,” McDermott said. “It’s about getting where we want to go and that’s to win a championship. At the end of the day it’s about the football team that fans and the Buffalo Bills dream of.”

The move has created a buzz in Buffalo, with strong reactions coming from both sides as the Bills change quarterbacks despite currently being in a playoff position with a 5-4 record.

Taylor responded to the move today:

Taylor has thrown for 1,684 yards this season with ten touchdowns and three interceptions, good for a 91.4 quarterback rating.

Peterman was selected by the Bills in the fifth round of the 2017 draft out of Pittsburgh, and is considered by some scouts to be good enough to eventually become a regular NFL starter.

Peterman is McDermott’s hand picked QB. How he plays will reflect on Sean the GM.
