In case you’re wondering who the Bills’ new starter is, a quick look at Nathan Peterman

Friday, November 17th, 2017

The Bills were 5-4 under Taylor, and were in position to make the playoffs for the first time since 1999 (they currently own the second AFC wild-card spot). Taylor isn’t injured, had 10 touchdowns against just three interceptions, was playing without the player he likely expected to be his No. 1 receiver (Sammy Watkins, traded to the Rams on Aug. 11), and wasn’t getting much protection from his offensive line (he was sacked 28 times in nine games, on pace for an absurd 50 for the season).
