Bills starting QB Tyrod Taylor will be making his first NFL start on Sunday. Head coach Rex Ryan said it would be only natural for the fifth-year quarterback to be nervous, having appeared in only 14 NFL regular season games. Taylor maintains that getting nervous isn’t something that happens to him.
“I don’t really get nervous before games,” he said. “Of course it’s my first start, but we’ve been playing preseason games and I’ve been around these guys. I’m just looking forward to going out there and seeing what we can do as a whole and go out there and show people what we can do.”
To provide a glimpse into the level of focus Taylor has this week, the quarterback said he hasn’t even really taken the time to think about the fact that it will be his first pro start in the regular season.
“I haven’t had a chance to sit back and think about how everything is going to play out,” Taylor said. “Just more focused on going out there and executing, doing the things I’ve been coached to do. And just go out there and be myself. It’s only Wednesday, I still have a couple of more important practices before then. Once the game comes, I’ll definitely be fired up. Up until then it’s work time.”
