Can Taylor keep pass attempts to a minimum?

In his last two starts Bills QB Tyrod Taylor attempted a TOTAL of 29 passes. Granted there were likely more pass plays called with the scrambles that Taylor had in those two games. It runs in stark contrast to how the rest of the league draws up their offensive game plans. The question is can the Bills sustain that type of approach and keep winning?

“Gotta do whatever it takes to win,” said Tyrod Taylor. “Look across the league, each game takes different things to win. As far as throwing the ball a couple more times or not throwing the ball enough, you have to be balanced in your approach. But each game is definitely gonna look different when you’re looking at stats.”

While Taylor has been supremely efficient when he has thrown the ball, but facing some of the higher octane offenses in the league like New England, or even Kansas City which is 12th in scoring, which are the next two teams on the schedule, they might not be as successful. Especially when you consider the fact that the Patriots have the third-ranked run defense and the Chiefs sport the 11th ranked run defense.

Fortunately Buffalo has an offensive coordinator in Greg Roman, who is not averse to doing whatever is necessary to put the team in the best position to score points. So against clubs like New England and KC the offensive approach is likely to change.
