Players inside the Buffalo Bills' locker room were just as surprised as everyone else Wednesday when they learned the team was making a quarterback change. As such, they were still processing coach Sean McDermott's decision to bench Tyrod Taylor in favor of rookie Nathan Peterman after practice. "Guys really didn't voice their opinions about it," running back LeSean …

Analysis

Nathan Peterman's first starting assignment will be knotty. The Buffalo Bills are switching to their rookie quarterback for a road game. Three hours away, no less. Ten-year veterans have trouble adapting to playing in the Pacific time zone. Peterman must prepare for the Los Angeles Chargers in four days, one of which will be spent on an airplane. One of the most s…

Kelvin Benjamin might not realize it yet, but he should be hopeful about the shift from Tyrod Taylor to Nathan Peterman. One of Taylor's best assets is his superb protection of the football, his extreme avoidance of interceptions. But he takes that trait to a fault with his reluctance to pull the trigger. As has been written and said so many times, Taylor is not an a…

He might have had to view them under a microscope, but Sean McDermott insisted there were positives to be found amidst the rubble that was game film of the Buffalo Bills' 47-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints. "There’s always positive. There is," the coach said Monday. "Harder to find yesterday, for sure. You have to find things that we did do well in order to build on…

Below are the Buffalo Bills' snap counts for the 2017 season, with some observations from the Week 10 loss to the New Orleans Saints. • It didn't take wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin long to get up to speed on the Bills' offense. He led his position group with 41 snaps. Deonte Thompson getting more snaps than Jordan Matthews (39 to 36) was interesting, while Andre Holme…

There is now plenty of room on the Buffalo Bills’ bandwagon. Spots that filled up after the Bills raced out to a 5-2 start are once again available as fans filed out of New Era Field early on Sunday with their team looking downright abysmal for the second game in a row. A 47-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints dropped the Bills to 5-4. They are still holding onto the…

The New Orleans Saints dropped by New Era Field on Sunday to slap around the Buffalo Bills. The Saints handed their hosts one of the mousiest defeats in NFL history, stunned Bills fans with unchecked dominance and even drank their beer. We should have known how much New Orleans would feel at home 8:42 after the opening kickoff. Mark Ingram scored his first touchdown,…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: F Maybe this is harsh, but now is no time to be lenient. LeSean McCoy got off to a good start, with a 36-yard gain on the first possession, but managed just 13 yards on his other seven carries. Mike Tolbert rushed twice for minus-2 yards. It’s at the point where we need to ask why he’s on the roster. Any carry by someone other than…

It looked like Kelvin Benjamin was going to have himself a day. The Buffalo Bills’ new receiver caught a 9-yard pass on the second play from scrimmage Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Twice more on the opening drive, Benjamin was targeted by quarterback Tyrod Taylor, although those passes fell incomplete. Things changed dramatically from that point, though, f…

The few fans who stuck it out to the bitter end Sunday inside New Era Field came alive with 4:53 remaining in what was a 47-10 Bills' loss to the New Orleans Saints. It was at that point that starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor was replaced by rookie backup Nathan Peterman, drawing the heartiest cheers of a lost afternoon. The cliche goes that the backup quarterback is…

After another humbling loss, Bills coach Sean McDermott addressed the media Sunday and sounded much like he did after last week's loss to the New York Jets. The Bills lost for the first time at home this season, falling 47-10 to the New Orleans Saints. Here are some takeaways from McDermott: On the quarterback situation: "Tyrod is our starter. ... I'm just going to e…

1. Well, that was embarrassing. The Bills were outclassed in every possible fashion Sunday at New Era Field, losing 47-10 to the New Orleans Saints. Blame the offense if you want. Or blame the defense. You really can't go wrong. Heck, even punter Colton Schmidt had a bad game. Going against a legitimate opponent at home, the Bills didn't come close to being up for the chal…

Despite a poor showing from the entire team, Tyrod Taylor had one of his most efficient efforts of the season against the Jets in Week Nine. The main issue was his inability to avoid pressure, which led to him being sacked seven times. As a passer, Taylor was good. He had a perfect rating over the middle on passes that traveled between 10 and 19 yards. He complete…

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 wit…
