The Buffalo Bills coaching staff is looking to shake things up.
This morning it was announced by head coach Sean McDermott that starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor would be benched in favor of rookie Nathan Peterman.
The move comes as a bit of a shock to some, as Taylor has put up decent numbers (64.2 comp. %, 1,684 yards, 10 TD, 3 INT, 91.4 QB rating) for the 5-4 Bills through nine games.
However, the offense has struggled to move the ball on offense the last few weeks and has had its fair share of 3&outs with Taylor under center.
Following Buffalo’s 47-10 loss to New Orleans — a game in which Taylor completed just nine of 18 passes for 56 yards and Buffalo’s offense managed just 198 total yards — the Bills felt they needed a change at the quarterback position. And throwing Peterman out there is a the change they decided to go with this week.
Peterman, 23, is a fifth-round pick out of Pittsburgh and will make his NFL debut this Sunday against the Chargers.
