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 9 of 18 for 65 yards an interception on Buffalo's first series of the game. The results were predictable for a fifth-round pick who was unspectacular in college, as the Pittsburgh product threw five interceptions in the first half before being relieved by Taylor after intermission.
He was later ruled out with a knee injury.
Taylor would eventually come into the game in the second half in relief of Peterman, who put up an all-time bad performance in his first National Football League start. The Bills announced that he would be out for the rest of the game. There had been talk around Buffalo about returning to Peterman, as horribly as he looked, as the Bills did not want to commit to Taylor. He started all but three games in his first two seasons with the team and hasn't missed a game yet this season.
