Bills benching Tyrod Taylor in favor of rookie Nathan Peterman

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (9) shakes hands with Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor (5) after an NFL football game Sunday, Nov. 12, 2017, in Orchard Park, N.Y. In his place, Peterman completed 7-of-10 passes for 79 yards and a touchdown.

"This is not an indictment on Tyrod", Bills head coach Sean McDermott said about the quarterback change.

The Bills have lost in consecutive weeks to the Jets and Saints; this past Sunday, Taylor was just 9-18 for 56 yards with zero TDs and a pick.

Peterman was selected in the fifth round of the draft after splitting his college career at Pittsburgh and Tennessee. He struggled against the Saints, but the entire team looked disgusting and it was the first time Taylor got to play with newly-acquired wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin. Taylor is a holdover from ex-coach Rex Ryan and may have played his final snap for the Bills.

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. His touchdown to interception ratio was also higher, but his production as a passer and a runner are slightly lower from where they were the last two seasons.
