New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan celebrates with teammates during the second half against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday in Orchard Park N.Y

Tyrod Taylor benched by the Bills, 2 days after being told he was still the starter

After the blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints, they've decided to make a change.

Peterman to start at QB SundayA big decision has been made by Bills head coach Sean McDermott.

Starter Tyrod Taylor is headed for the bench, and rookie backup Nathan Peterman, who made his National Football League debut last Sunday, will get the start against the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Buffalo Bills announced on Wednesday that Nathan Peterman would be the team's starting quarterback over Tyrod Taylor for their Week 11 game against the Chargers.

Arsenal to pounce as Fellaini rejects Man Utd contract offer
Manchester United are "increasingly resigned" to the prospect of Marouane Fellaini leaving the club for free next summer. However, the report also claims that Arsenal are interested in the Belgian alongside Inter Milan and Besiktas .

Peterman took over and went 7 of 19 for 79 yards and a touchdown over the final two drives.

Though McDermott says he remains confident in Taylor, he decided to make the move to see if Peterman can make Buffalo a better team.

"We're here for more than five wins".

"Because I believe in Tyrod", McDermott said, "Tyrod is our starter".

Jones defends Thursday Night Football, says it's not too demanding on players
While that works out to $132,000 per player, it makes more sense to consider the impact in light of proportionate cap burden. Meanwhile, the Steelers are 5-1 ATS versus a team with a winning record and 3-1-1 ATS in their last five Thursday games.

"I thought he did some good things", McDermott said of Peterman after Sunday's game. Given that the Bills have turned their offense over to Peterman, it's hard to picture Taylor remaining in Buffalo.

Taylor, 28, has been benched despite completing 64.2 percent of his passes this season and scoring 12 touchdowns while only throwing three interceptions.

The Bills have lost two straight and are 5-4 this season, but at first glance, the move doesn't seem to make much sense.

Last week, Taylor managed just 56 yards, nine completions and one interception in a blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints.
