Yes, the Buffalo Bills fall considerably in our NFL power rankings this week. But that’s what happens when head coach Sean McDermott elects to bench starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor in favor of the rookie, Nathan Peterman.

Taylor eventually came into the game, but the damage was done. And McDermott’s move even prompted Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman to offer up some criticism:

Yeah, that’s all the justification needed for a big fall in NFL power rankings.
