Nov. 15, 2017 6:02 AM PT7:02 AM MT8:02 AM CT9:02 AM ET14:02 GMT22:02 7:02 AM MST9:02 AM EST8:02 AM CT18:02 UAE9:02 ETNaN:� - Taylor has been benched and the Buffalo Bills are going with rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman to start against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.
Analysis: Though McDermott says he remains confident in Taylor, he decided to make the move to see if Peterman can make Buffalo a better team. That's a significant change of heart for McDermott, who maintained Taylor was the team's starter following a 47-10 loss to New Orleans last weekend and again on Monday. The decision comes after Taylor struggled against the Saints, going 9 of 15 for 56 yards and an interception.
Nov. 12, 2017 1:29 PM PT2:29 PM MT3:29 PM CT4:29 PM ET21:29 GMT5:29 2:29 PM MST4:29 PM EST3:29 PM CT1:29 UAE (+1)16:29 ETNaN:� - Tyrod Taylor was 9 of 18 for 56 yards and didn't throw a touchdown pass Sunday in the Buffalo Bills' 47-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints. He threw one interception, didn't fumble and was sacked two times. Taylor added 27 rushing yards on three carries.
Analysis: Taylor was having a solidly under-the-radar fantasy season before this one. He still only has 10 touchdown passes this season.
Nov. 2, 2017 8:23 PM PT9:23 PM MT10:23 PM CT11:23 PM ET3:23 GMT11:23 8:23 PM MST10:23 PM EST9:23 PM CT7:23 UAE (+1)23:23 ETNaN:� - Tyrod Taylor was 29 of 40 for 285 yards and threw two touchdown passes Thursday in the Buffalo Bills' 34-21 loss to the New York Jets. He did not throw an interception, fumbled once and was sacked seven times. Taylor added 35 rushing yards on six carries and scored one touchdown on the ground.
Analysis: Taylor's final numbers look very good but almost all his production came with the game already decided. He had three scores for the first time this season and set a season high with 285 passing yards. Taylor was sacked seven time so the loss wasn't all his fault and he'll get another weapon next week against the Saints when new receiver Kelvin Benjamin debuts.
Oct. 29, 2017 1:22 PM PT2:22 PM MT3:22 PM CT4:22 PM ET20:22 GMT4:22 1:22 PM MST3:22 PM EST2:22 PM CT0:22 UAE (+1)16:22 ETNaN:� - Tyrod Taylor was 20 of 27 for 165 yards and threw one touchdown pass Sunday in the Buffalo Bills' 34-14 win over the Oakland Raiders. He did not throw an interception, didn't fumble and was not sacked. Taylor added one rushing yard on six carries and scored one touchdown on the ground.
Analysis: Taylor saved his fantasy day with a rushing touchdown. He may not be putting up huge numbers, but he is taking care of the football with eight passing touchdowns and only two picks on the season.
Oct. 22, 2017 2:21 PM PT3:21 PM MT4:21 PM CT5:21 PM ET21:21 GMT5:21 2:21 PM MST4:21 PM EST4:21 PM CT1:21 UAE (+1)17:21 ETNaN:� - Tyrod Taylor was 20 of 33 for 268 yards and threw one touchdown pass Sunday in the Buffalo Bills' 30-27 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Analysis: Taylor set a season high for passing yards and fell two rushing yards shy of tying his season best. He's attempted over 30 passes in each of the last two games after not doing so in the first four.
Oct. 8, 2017 1:18 PM PT2:18 PM MT3:18 PM CT4:18 PM ET20:18 GMT4:18 1:18 PM MST3:18 PM EST3:18 PM CT0:18 UAE (+1)16:18 ETNaN:� - Tyrod Taylor was 20 of 37 for 166 yards and threw one touchdown pass Sunday in the Buffalo Bills' 20-16 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Sep. 10, 2017 1:50 PM PT2:50 PM MT3:50 PM CT4:50 PM ET20:50 GMT4:50 1:50 PM MST3:50 PM EST3:50 PM CT0:50 UAE (+1)16:50 ETNaN:� - Taylor was 16 of 28 for 224 yards with two TDs and an interception and the new-look Bills beat the New York Jets 21-12 on Sunday in Sean McDermott's debut as Buffalo's coach.
Analysis: Taylor looked pretty good for a guy who missed time with a concussion in the preseason. He also added eight carries for 38 yards.
Sep. 6, 2017 8:06 AM PT9:06 AM MT10:06 AM CT11:06 AM ET15:06 GMT23:06 8:06 AM MST10:06 AM EST10:06 AM CT19:06 UAE11:06 ETNaN:� - Taylor has cleared concussion protocol and will start Week 1 vs. the Jets.

Aug. 26, 2017 4:00 PM PT5:00 PM MT6:00 PM CT7:00 PM ET23:00 GMT7:00 4:00 PM MST6:00 PM EST6:00 PM CT3:00 UAE (+1)19:00 ETNaN:� - Taylor left a preseason game on Saturday night against Baltimore in the first quarter after suffering a concussion.

Aug. 18, 2017 10:02 AM PT11:02 AM MT12:02 PM CT1:02 PM ET17:02 GMT1:02 10:02 AM MST12:02 PM EST12:02 PM CT21:02 UAE13:02 ETNaN:� - Taylor was 8 of 18 for 53 yards and two interceptions in Thursday's preseason loss to the Eagles.
Analysis: This performance did nothing to shake the notion that Taylor's job as the Bills' No. 1 quarterback is far from safe. Granted, he'll start the season opener, but if he continues performing as he has in the preseason, T.J. Yates could soon take over under center.
Aug. 10, 2017 7:51 PM PT8:51 PM MT9:51 PM CT10:51 PM ET2:51 GMT10:51 7:51 PM MST9:51 PM EST9:51 PM CT6:51 UAE (+1)22:51 ETNaN:� - Taylor played three series and hit 5 of 8 attempts for 46 yards in Thursday's preseason opener, and voided a scare when he came up limping after Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen fell on him for a 6-yard sack on Buffalo's opening drive.
Analysis: Taylor completed the series and was evaluated under a tent on the sideline before being cleared to return. He showed no signs of being hurt three plays later when he scrambled away from Griffen and Danielle Hunter before running out of bounds for a 2-yard gain.
Mar. 8, 2017 10:15 AM PT11:15 AM MT12:15 PM CT1:15 PM ET18:15 GMT2:15 11:15 AM MST1:15 PM EST12:15 PM CT22:15 UAE13:15 ETNaN:� - Taylor will remain the Buffalo Bills starter after the team announced it has restructured the player's five-year contract extension.
Analysis: The team revealed the news in a press release issued Wednesday, a day before the NFL's free-agency period began. The Bills had until Saturday to determine whether to pick up the extension Taylor signed in August or part ways with the two-year starter.
