How does Tyrod Taylor play in cold weather?

Earlier this week I wrote on how Drew Brees performs in cold weather.

Turns out, he hasn't played up to his normal Hall of Fame caliber, but since the start of 2013, he's only played in six of 35 away games with an outside temperature below 60 degrees. So the sample size wasn't exactly ideal.

I figured it was logical to look at how Tyrod Taylor has fared in games with the same conditions, and as you can probably imagine, the Bills quarterback has played in many more "cold weather" games than Brees during his time as Buffalo's starting signal-caller.

Taylor has appeared in 37 games with the Bills, and in 16 of those contests (43.2 percent), the weather was below 60 degrees.

Here's how he's fared.

  • Attempts: 453
  • Completions: 289
  • Completion Percentage: 63.7
  • Yards: 3,383
  • Yards Per Attempt: 7.46
  • TDs: 21
  • INTs: 3

Clearly, Taylor has acclimated well to the weather that comes with playing for the Bills, which includes yearly road games against two divisional opponents in the Northeastern part of the country who don't have domed stadiums.

In his last four sub-60 degree games, Taylor has completed 67.8 percent of his throws at 7.79 yards per attempt with seven touchdowns and one interception.

Taylor's last game at New Era Field was a game played in under 60 degree weather. He went 20 of 27 for 165 yards with one touchdown in Buffalo's win over the Raiders.
