McDermott: Tyrod Taylor will start next week for Bills

In the aftermath of the Bills' 16-10 victory against the Kansas City Chiefs, the elephant in the room was the quarterback situation.

After getting enough from Tyrod Taylor for the Bills to get a victory, coach Sean McDermott was asked whether the win proved that he erred in having Nathan Peterman start last week against the Los Angeles Chargers. Peterman threw five interceptions and the Bills were blown out.

McDermott again said he felt the move was the right thing for his football team at the time, but he did commit to Taylor for next Sunday's home game against the New England Patriots.

Asked specifically whether Taylor is the quarterback until the team would be eliminated from the playoffs, McDermott said, "Tyrod is our quarterback next week."

McDermott also was quick to continue to turn the page. "What's important now is what just happened this week and where we're going next week and that's what we're focused on. ...

"(The Patriots) are a good football team. They're the reigning champs. ... We've got a lot of work to do."

Told of what McDermott said about next week, Taylor responded, "One week at a time."

The win snapped a three-game losing streak that included a series of ugly losses.

"We just focused on our process," McDermott said. "That is what we do. You have heard me say this before, this league is going to try to move you in a lot of different directions in one season alone and who can stay focused and stay together the longest, that is what happens through injuries, through adversity. We just try to stay focused on that process and hanging together and that is what we have to do moving forward.”
