Tyrod Taylor Will Be A Handful for Patriots Defense

The New England Patriots visit the Buffalo Bills in Week 2 of the NFL regular season. This season the two head-to-head games between the two AFC East rivals should be much more competitive than of recent. The Bills won their opener against the Indianapolis Colts in impressive fashion 27-14, behind the debut of quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

Many times this past summer Bills fans were wondering who would be the starter at quarterback as they had three players vying for the position.

On Sunday, Taylor looked as though he put at ease some of the worries of Buffalo fans, at least for one game. The rookie quarterback hit 14 of his 19 passes for 195 yards with one touchdown. He added another 41 yards rushing.

The Bills look to be an offense by committee. Five players rushed the ball for the Bills and six players caught passes on the day. The ability of Taylor to scramble to keep a play alive made a huge difference against the Colts defense in Week 1.

The Buffalo offense was helped by their defense, which was able to keep Indianapolis from scoring until deep into the third quarter.

Aaron Williams a safety for Buffalo described Andrew Luck the Colts quarterback as just another NFL quarterback leading up to Sunday’s game.

The Bills defense will be helped in Week 2 against Tom Brady and the Patriots with the return of Marcell Dareus their All-Pro defensive tackle who was suspended for last week’s opener.

Buffalo will be looking to make a strong statement and go 2-0 when they meet New England on Sunday.

Taylor ran for as many yards in the win over the Colts as did start running back LeSean McCoy.

Rex Ryan said Taylor has magic in his legs and his fondness of running quarterbacks has him calling Taylor the Bills future.

While with the Jets, Ryan loved to use running plays from the Wildcat format because he knows how much a mobile quarterback can make it hard on defenses.

Taylor is Ryan’s new protégé in Buffalo and after the first week win over the Colts, it looks like he will stay as the signal caller for the long run.

With Greg Roman as the offensive coordinator, Taylor has a creative mind who helped the 49ers to reach the Super Bowl with a running minded Colin Kaepernick as the signal caller.

It is only one game, but the rookie quarterback showed great poise with solid decision making for a rookie. It might be too earlier to call Taylor magic but he might help the Bills go much further this season than they have in many years.
