The Buffalo Bills have benched quarterback Tyrod Taylor, and Nathan Peterman will start on Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers, coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday.
McDermott said he remains confident in Taylor, but he decided to make the move to see if Peterman can make Buffalo a better team.
"I've been impressed with the maturity from Nathan Peterman," said McDermott, who on Monday maintained Taylor would continue to start. "I'm comfortable making a calculated risk to try and get us where we need to go."
While Tyrod hasn't played well the last couple weeks, it seems like the defense has been the main issue.
