With Taylor sidelined for the remainder of Sunday's contest after being carted off the field in the fourth quarter, Nathan Peterman is in at QB for the Bills. This is Peterman's first National Football League action since Week 11 when he threw five interceptions against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Buffalo trailed New England 23-3 when its starting signal caller headed to the locker room; hopes of a comeback were slim even with him under center.
Taylor was forced out of Sunday's game against the Patriots with a knee injury. Taylor completed nine of 18 passes for 65 yards before re-aggravating his injury early on in the fourth quarter.
However, late in the game, with the Bills down big, the gunslinger appeared in obvious pain.
Taylor rolled his ankle on the first play of the game, but stayed in and played through it.
Rookie coach Sean McDermott made the questionable decision to start Peterman, a fifth-round pick, against the on November 19.
He was later ruled out with a knee injury. He also recorded his first National Football League sack in the previous game against the Miami Dolphins.
