Taylor says that the Bills’ offense was suited to him, and that moving forward, the focus will be helping Peterman.

In terms of the decision to bench Taylor, he said he doesn’t agree at all, but that he is not the one who makes the call.

Taylor had kind things to say about Peterman though, calling him a “great guy” and “talented.”

The Bills are currently 5-4 this season.

The team will play the Chargers on Sunday afternoon.
