Tyrod Taylor Officially Starting Sunday Against the Bills
The Buffalo Bills will be playing their first home prime time game this Sunday.
The Bills host the New York Giants for Sunday Night Football. Kickoff from Highmark Stadium will be 8:20 pm.
The Bills cannot afford to lose this game if they wish to stay in the race for the top spot in the AFC East, along with the number one seed in the AFC. The Miami Dolphins are 4-1 and the Kansas City Chiefs improved to 5-1 after a win on Thursday night vs. the Denver Broncos. The room for error is getting smaller.
The Bills have not yet declared anyone out yet for Sunday, but the jury remains out on whether Dane Jackson (foot) and Dalton Kincaid (concussion protocol) can play, but both were limited in practice on Friday, which is good news.
As for the New York Giants, they will be starting their backup quarterback and it's a very familiar name for Bills fans.
The Giants officially declared Daniel Jones out for Sunday night. They will start Tyrod Taylor at quarterback.
Taylor was the Bills starting quarterback from 2015 to 2017. He's the quarterback who ended the 17-year playoff drought and still has a lot of respect from the fanbase in Buffalo.
Tyrod is towards the end of his career but this could be a fun matchup, since he can escape from pressure. The Giants have the worst offensive line in the NFL and serious injury concerns, with 17 players on the injury report on Thursday.
Cole Beasley might play as well, which would be two famous past Bills playing against their former teams.
The Bills won't have key players on defense like Tre'Davious White, Matt Milano and DaQuan Jones. Still, they should and have to win this game. There are no excuses.
