Nathan Peterman throws five Ints in the first half, it would be comical if it wasnt a totally self-inflicted injury by a team owning a wild card spot entering the weekend.

Tyrod Taylor really needs to tell the Bills to fck off in the off-season.

Unreal. Why would you do that to a young lad? After the 2nd or 3rd he should have been out of there, notwithstanding the crazy decision to start him in the first place.

The Bills want to ditch Tyrod as they'll have to pay him to keep him after this season. They (rightly in my eyes) don't see him as a franchise QB and will draft a rookie from this promising class in 2018. That's no reason to do what they did - Taylor is a functional mid tier QB who tends not to turn the ball over. It was bonkers. In fantasy played the Chargers in any league I could get them in or didn't have Jacksonville. People who followed Peterman in college said he wasn't great even there!

He transferred from Tennessee to Pittsburgh, which is a bit of a red flag. But now I hope he makes it, because that was just too cruel.

PS re Taylor, he's above average in fairness but I don't think he's a top tier QB. That said, he's better than anything the Cardinals have now, so if they don't get anyone in the draft, I'd like to see them get him.

Yeah he is probably above average, he has no weapons, WR group is brutal, Benjamin may help but I think he got injured again yesterday. Think he is due $6m next year with Bills, which would be affordable for the Bills, when you look at what Glennon, for example, got with Chicago.

Yeah but I just think teams are seeing Dak Prescott, Carson Wentz, Jared Goff and what they're getting paid and saying - we can save money here. I quite like Tyrod Taylor. If everything else was right you could go far with him.

Pretty cool and inspiring story about Seahawks rookie CB Shaquill Griffin's brother, Shaquem. Hand his left hand amputated as a kid but was DPOY in the AAC last year and could well be in his way to the NFL
