Bills Name Tyrod Taylor Starting Quarterback vs. Chiefs Over Nathan Peterman

The Nathan Peterman experiment is over for now.

Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott has made the decision to start Tyrod Taylor at quarterback on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs over Nathan Peterman, the team announced. 

Peterman started last week's 54-24 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers but threw five interceptions in the first half. Taylor entered the game in the second half and finished the game with 15 of 25 passes completed for 158 yards and a touchdown. Peterman was six-for-14 for just 66 yards. 

In his Monday morning press conference, McDermott told reporters that he did not regret the decision to start Peterman and was going to take his time in assessing what is the best decision for the team going forward.

McDermott called the decision to start Taylor "the right thing for our team" on Wednesday.

The Bills are 5–5 on the season after the Week 11 loss.
