Bills revert to Tyrod Taylor as starting QB after Nathan Peterman disaster

Taylor to start at QB in Kansas CityBills head coach Sean McDermott said on Monday that his plan for last week's game to start rookie quarterback Nate Peterman didn't work.

Taylor regained the starting job from rookie Nathan Peterman, who threw five first-half interceptions in his first career start Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers.

It's crystal clear McDermott and the front office don't see Taylor as the long-term answer, but you have to explain these decisions to the locker room.

By the end of the first half of the Bills' loss to the Chargers, it was apparent that the move was the wrong one.

Taylor replaced Peterman at halftime and played significantly better, throwing for 158 yards and a touchdown and running for another score. Today he announced that veteran Tyrod Taylor will be back in the starting lineup. Meanwhile, the Taylor has thrown 10 touchdowns to three interceptions in the nine games he's played.

The decision would have been more defensible if the Bills' season was already in the scrap heap, but they are now 5-5 and tied with the Ravens for the second wild-card spot.
