Week 11 Reactions: Overcoming Disaster

Andrew M. Laird

Andrew M. Laird, the 2017 FSWA Soccer Writer of the Year, is RotoWire's Senior Soccer Editor and a fantasy football contributor. He is also a two-time finalist for the FSWA's Football Writer of the Year Award.

One of the biggest storylines heading into the weekend was Bills head coach Sean McDermott's decision to bench starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor in favor of rookie Nathan Peterman, a fifth-round pick (171st overall) out of the University of Pittsburgh. Taylor wasn't playing like an elite quarterback this year because, well, he's not an elite quarterback, but he led the team to a 5-2 record before losing to the Jets and Saints. Taylor threw for 285 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 35 yards and another score against the Jets, but his dreadful performance against the Saints (9 of 18 for 56 yards and one interception, 27 rushing yards) led to his benching. In fact, Peterman took over in that game, completing 7 of 10 passes for 79 yards and a touchdown in garbage time.
