Tyrod Taylor completed 19-of-27 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown while adding six carries for 35 yards Sunday in the Bills' Week 17 win over the Dolphins.
There's been no shortage of drama throughout Taylor's tenure in Buffalo. Arguably the most under-appreciated quarterback in football, Taylor was inexplicably benched for Nathan Peterman in Week 11, only to have the overmatched rookie throw five first-half interceptions against the Chargers. Taylor regained his starting job following Petermanâ€™s implosion but he never made much of a dent in fantasy with Deonte Thompson and an injured Kelvin Benjamin as his top receivers. Tyrod kept the mistakes to a minimum during the regular season (four interceptions) and was productive as a ball-carrier with 427 rushing yards, but never topped 300 passing yards in a game. Taylor will make his first postseason start next week in Jacksonville. It's the Bills' first playoff appearance since 1999.

Tyrod Taylor completed 21-of-38 passes for 281 yards and rushed three times for 16 yards in the Bills' Week 16 loss to the Patriots.
As is always the case, it was a game of up and downs for Taylor. He made a couple great deep throws to Deonte Thompson in the first half and consistently found Kelvin Benjamin for chain-moving gains, but he also missed open receivers, was late to others, and had two touchdowns taken off the board â€“ one by a drop and one by a dubious replay decision. Taylor led another long drive to open the second half, although like happened way too often in this game it ended in a field goal, but he struggled to create much after that. Following this loss, the Bills will need a win next week against the Dolphins and some help to end the league's longest playoff drought.

Tyrod Taylor completed 17-of-29 passes for 224 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 against Miami.
He added six carries for 42 yards and a rushing TD. Taylor managed Buffalo to another win after sitting out last week. His only passing touchdown was a wide open throw to an uncovered LeSean McCoy in the slot. The Bills knocked Miami out of the playoff race and are still in the Wildcard hunt, but they get a matchup with the Patriots in Week 16.
