Buffalo Bills' quarterback Tyrod Taylor suffered an injury on the very first play of the team's Week 13 contest with the New England Patriots. He was ineffective prior to the early exit, completing only nine of 18 passes for 65 yards, with no touchdowns and one interception. Taylor had a towel over his head as the cart made its way off the field.
Taylor was replaced on Sunday by rookie Nathan Peterman, who completed 6 of 15 passes for 50 yards.

Peters was called for Unsportsmanlike Conduct after taking the referee's red flag and throwing it into the stands. McCown's pass on the 2-point conversion was incomplete, but Nelson was called for holding.

Nathan Peterman, the dude who hurled eleventy-billion interceptions in his first ever National Football League start, would replace Taylor.

It's also mitigated the loss of slot receiver Julian Edelman, who has been Brady's favorite target for years. Taylor double-pumped in the pocket before throwing a pass directly to linebacker Eric Lee at the goal line.
Taylor was having a rough day and appeared to have some trouble with the knee after taking a sack in the first half of the game.
After further evaluation, Taylor has a contusion of his patellar tendon, according to Bills coach Sean McDermott.

That dealt a serious blow to his already fragile alliance with rebel chief Abdul Malik al-Huthi. Worldwide aid groups warned Monday they were losing the ability to reach civilians in Sanaa.
While Taylor's status for Sunday's game is uncertain, McDermott said Monday that it looks good for wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin to practice after missing the past two weeks with a torn meniscus in his knee.
