|Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott announced Wednesday that Tyrod Taylor will be the team's starting quarterback for Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
McDermott wouldn't commit to Taylor as the starter for the remainder of 2017, saying he'll continue evaluating the job on a week-to-week basis, according toMichael David Smith of Pro Football Talk.
The Bills gave the starting role to fifth-round rookie Nathan Peterman this past Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers. Peterman threw five interceptions while completing just 6 of 14 pass attempts for 66 yards, and Taylor came into the game partway through the second quarter.
He finished the day by going 15-for-25 through the air for 158 yards, one touchdown, and no interceptions. He added four rushing attempts for 38 yards and a second score while facing a fairly relaxed Chargers defense. Los Angeles won 54-24.
Taylor has completed 63.8 percent of 279 pass attempts this season, throwing 11 touchdowns and three interceptions. He's added 275 rushing yards and three more scores on 57 attempts.
The Bills started the season at 5-2, but now sit at 5-5, leaving them tied for the AFC's second wild-card spot heading into Sunday's game at Arrowhead Stadium.
