Week 2 of the preseason isn't exactly a high-stakes game. But the Bills and Browns aren't scheduled to meet during the regular season, so outside of an unlikely playoff meeting, Friday night will be Tyrod Taylor's only chance to face the team that traded him after he ended its 17-year playoff drought.
Taylor is known for being mild-mannered, but he told Cleveland reporters this week that he's certainly using the trade for motivation.
"Each year has its own way of motivating itself,'' Taylor said, via cleveland.com. "But definitely how it ended there, it's motivation for this year, not necessarily for this game, but this year."
