Taylor back as starter after 'interesting set of days'

Taylor back as starter after 'interesting set of days'

Last week, McDermott benched Taylor in favor of rookie fifth-round pick Nathan Peterman. Peterman threw five interceptions in a single half before the team pulled him and replaced him with Taylor.

But McCoy said he did not have any animosity toward those around him for last, namely head coach Sean McDermott who made the choice, and Peterman, who struggled.

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. The smartest move from McDermott would have been riding Taylor through the Chargers, Chiefs and Patriots games before deciding to try out Peterman against the Indianapolis Colts on December 10.

"It's been an interesting set of days but it's the National Football League", Taylor said. You sit here and say, 'Hey, Thanksgiving, close to the end of November and we're in the hunt.' You sit around the table tomorrow and say, 'We're in the hunt.' There's a lot of teams that wish they were in the hunt. "So we have to do whatever it takes to fix things we haven't been doing so well and get back on track", he said. Ultimately we're here to win games. At this point, however, we can not confidently say Taylor will stay under center - even if that's the best choice. "This team is still very much capable of making the playoffs".

Through 10 games this season, Taylor has completed a career-best 63.8 percent of his passes for 1,842 yards, with 11 touchdowns and three interceptions. If McDermott truly thought Peterman was a better option to get the Bills to the playoffs this season, it seems to be wishful thinking.

"I'm always trying to evolve as a player as far as me examining my game", Taylor said.
