Taylor completed nine of 18 passes for 56 yards before being replaced by rookie fifth-round pick Nathan Peterman with less than five minutes remaining in the game.

The Bills gave up 298 rushing yards to the New Orleans Saints, which was the eighth most all time for the franchise and more than any Rex Ryan team ever allowed.

However, McDermott changed his tune Wednesday, announcing that Peterman would start Sunday when the Bills face the Los Angeles Chargers when addressing the media during his press conference.


McDermott also said it is about becoming better as a football team.

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

Taylor's 56 passing yards and 33.6 passer rating were both the lowest in his 38-game career as Buffalo's starter. "Obviously, got us into the end zone, so that was a positive". At least Peterman has Kelvin Benjamin and Charles Clay in the lineup, something Taylor didn't have the luxury of for much of the season. He was benched late in the fourth quarter against the Saints in favor of Peterman, who threw for 79 yards while completing seven of 10 passes.
