Bills send Tyrod Taylor to the Pro Bowl

The Buffalo Bills have only had 5 Pro Bowl quarterbacks in their entire existence. Tyrod Taylor was name a Pro Bowler today, making him the 6th player to ever be named to the Pro Bowl as a quarterback of the Bills.  The last person to do it was Drew Bledsoe in 2002, followed by Doug Flutie in 1998.  Jack Kemp was a 6 time Pro Bowler and Jim Kelly was a 5 time Pro Bowler, leaving Daryl Lamonica as the only Pro Bowl quarterback not mentioned. 

Taylor in his first season as an NFL starter went 8-6 when he was in the lineup and his six interceptions were a league low among quarterbacks with 10 or more starts this season. Taylor’s 3.33:1 touchdown to interception ratio was seventh-best in the NFL.

He also ranked seventh in the league in passer rating (99.4) and set a franchise record for single-season rushing yards by a quarterback with 568 with four rushing touchdowns.

Eric Wood also made the Pro Bowl as a replacement player.
