The Nathan Peterman experiment lasted exactly one half, at least in 2017, as the Buffalo Bills have announced that Tyrod Taylor will start vs. the Chiefs.
Nathan Peterman’s tenure as the Buffalo Bills’ starting quarterback didn’t last very long. It was a single half of professional football for those counting.
Last Sunday, the Bills rookie struggled mightily against the Los Angeles Chargers to the tune of a horrific five turnovers, all interceptions, and Bills coach Sean McDermott ended up pulling Peterman for incumbent starter Tyrod Taylor for the rest of the game.
Now McDermott is making it official that Taylor is back in place:
Taylor’s last start wasn’t all that great, to be fair to why McDermott even made the switch in the first place. Taylor could barely get anything going against a dominating New Orleans Saints squad, who also put up nearly 50 points. Taylor took the blame for what was largely a downright pitiful effort by the Bills run defense (giving up 300 yards on the ground).
Now the Chiefs will be able to prepare for Sunday knowing they will be facing the veteran option versus the rookie. Peterman’s arm would have forced the Chiefs to respect the deep ball a bit but Taylor will be tougher to deceive with his experience. He also comes with frustrating ability to slip out of the pocket as an above average rusher from the position.
Taylor has completed a career-high 63.8 percent of his passes on the year so far with 11 touchdowns and only 3 interceptions.
