How does the LA Chargers compare to Tyrod Taylor’s most notable team, the 2017 Buffalo Bills?

Tyrod Taylor is most likely going to tasked with starting duties on the LA Chargers for the 2020 season. Barring any injury, Taylor is most likely going to be the starter in Week 1 and will retain the job as long as his production warrants it.

There is a mixed reaction to Taylor being the starting quarterback among Charger fans. On one hand, the team has a quarterback that posts historically low interception rates (second-lowest all-time among quarterbacks with 1,000 passing attempts). However, on the other hand, the team has a quarterback who has never won 10 games in a season.

With a roster as talented as the Chargers, there are concerns among some fans (myself included) that the team might not be able to reach their potential.

But will that roster make Tyrod better? One of the biggest narratives surrounding Tyrod taking over the starting role is that he has never had the weapons that the Chargers present this season. On paper, this should seemingly make him a better quarterback.

Is that wholly the case, though? While the Chargers are better in some areas than the last team that Taylor took to the playoffs, the 2017 Buffalo Bills, they are also worse in other areas, which will also impact Taylor’s production.

To add to the discussion, we here at Bolt Beat wanted to dive in and break down the 2020 LA Chargers and the 2017 Buffalo Bills.
