Nathan Peterman replaces Tyrod Taylor as Buffalo Bills quarterback in Week 11

Nathan Peterman replaces Tyrod Taylor as Buffalo Bills quarterback in Week 11

After losing to the New York Jets and being blown out by the New Orleans Saints, the Buffalo Bills have decided to make a major change to their starting lineup.

Peterman was selected in the fifth round of the draft after splitting his college career at Pittsburgh and Tennessee.

By benching Tyrod Taylor for a rookie who has attempted a grand total of 10 passes, the Buffalo Bills have unofficially entered the 2018 Quarterback Chase. Head coach Sean McDermott believes Peterman gives the team the best chance of reaching that goal.

"We are in the playoff hunt and we are always focused on becoming the best team possible".

"I thought he did some good things", McDermott said of Peterman after Sunday's game.

Taylor was pulled from Sunday's clash against the New Orleans Saints, which saw him and the Bills offense struggle and eventually fall to a heavy 47-10 defeat.

Residents in the capital, more than 300 kilometers (186 miles) away, felt tremors and said their buildings shook. While no casualties have been reported yet, seven people have been lightly wounded, with over 40 people rescued.

"We're here for more than five wins".

"Tyrod and I met yesterday", said McDermott, per Bills beat reporter Joe Buscaglia. "Moved the offense there".

Taylor, in his third year as Buffalo's starter, has thrown for 1,684 yards and 10 touchdowns against three interceptions.

Taylor went 9-of-18 passing with 56 yards and an interception before being taken out of the game.

Taylor had started the team's first nine games this season, going 5-4 in those games.
