Tyrod Taylor does a bit of everything as Bills grab lead

The first drive of Sunday’s game for the Bills included a play that would be a lead on a lowlight film if not for what Tyrod Taylor was able to do after a major mental error.

Taylor lined up in the shotgun behind left guard Richie Incognito and didn’t realize it until he called for a snap that came from center Eric Wood. The ball sailed past Taylor and he recovered for an 18-yard loss that he was able to wipe out two plays later with a 22-yard scramble through the Rams defense for a first down.

Taylor would cap the 11-play, 72-yard drive by showing off his elusiveness again. He scrambled long enough for Justin Hunter to break open for his first catch and first touchdown as a member of the Bills. That gave the Bills a 7-3 lead in Los Angeles with 2:22 to play in the first half.

The Rams opened the game with a strong drive of their own, but a false start made for a long third down in the red zone that the Rams couldn’t convert. They settled for a Greg Zuerlein field goal after going 60 yards in 12 plays.

    Tyrod isn’t perfect, but dang, the guy has a compete level that just isn’t matched. I’d throw that right up there with Brady and Brees, the guy just wants to win. I think it’s finally permiating the locker room, this is definetly not the same team that lost to the Jets. It’s easy for us in WNy to get excited, but, this time it looks like staying power. The last 3 weeks I have seen this team just take control of every opportunity presented to them, not getting in to deep, nothing. Keep it up, you have the talent!

    Bills fans are delusional. 2 wins and all of a sudden Rex is a top flight coach and Taylor is Dan Marino. Wait till you crap the bed later today or maybe next week and you will see what everyone else sees.

    Watching that snap sail by Thyroid was hilarious.

    “Right up there with Brady and Breees”, LOL!
