With Tyrod Taylor’s first season as a starting QB with Buffalo now in the books we decided to take a look at how Taylor’s passing numbers stacked up with other Bills signal callers in their first year as starters for Buffalo.
With a tip of the hat to our media relations department, here’s a look at how Taylor ranks in the passing game.
The criteria was in their first season as starter they had to start in at least 10 games.
Taylor was one of only four quarterbacks to post a winning record (8-6). He leads all first-year Bills starters in yards per attempt (7.99), had the fewest interceptions (6) and the highest quarterback rating (99.4).
The rushing stats (2nd table below) Taylor’s numbers are even more impressive. He is the franchise single-season leader in rushing yards by a QB (568). And even though he does have the most rushing attempts he still leads first-year Bills starting QBs in yards per carry (5.5).
