Bills bench Tyrod Taylor, will start Nathan Peterman at QB

Nathan Peterman to start at QB against Chargers

Three days after Tyrod Taylor was yanked for rookie Nathan Peterman in the Bills' 47-10 loss to the Saints, coach Sean McDermott announced that Taylor will remain on the bench this week when the Bills face the Chargers.

McDermott says he is impressed with his maturity as a young player. Maybe Peterman will be better and proves everyone wrong, but to do it at a time where your team still has a winning record and control your own destiny to make the playoffs for the first time this millennium, McDermott can not possibly pick the worst time to make this move.

Peterman has drawn comparisons to Kirk Cousins, likely to be the crown jewel of the 2018 free agent class that now likely includes Taylor, because of the rookie's strong intangibles. After the blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints, they've decided to make a change.

"I thought he did some good things", McDermott said of Peterman after Sunday's game. It's not Peterman's fault he's getting this chance and if I'm him, I'm definitely not turning this down.

However, Enyeama, who is on the road to recovery after a long injury-enforced lay-off, is happy with the present team's performances.

Tyrod Taylor has been benched for Nathan Peterman. "I don't want you to miss my first start". His average quarterback rating of 93.5-about six points lower than Russell Wilson's career QBR-earned him a Pro Bowl nod in 2015. "We're not playing well, from (Tyrod Taylor) to me, guys up front, other playmakers, we're not playing well".

If the Bills are basing this decision exclusively off last week-fine. This week, the Bills cut veteran lineman Jerel Worthy and re-signed DeAndre Coleman, who gives them additional bulk in the middle of the line. TE Charles Clay had a disappointing return after a four-week absence as he caught only two passes for 13 yards. LT Cordy Glenn did not practice because of his ongoing foot and ankle problems.

In defending his decision Wednesday, McDermott said his goals were higher than simply making the playoffs this season. WR Jordan Matthews is bothered by a knee injury and he was limited in practice Wednesday. He's as bereft of offensive weapons as any starter in the NFL; Kelvin Benjamin got exactly one game to become a force after arriving via the deadline trade with the Panthers.
