3) Tyrod Taylor

The Raiders scored on their first drive of the game, that saw 5:32 come off the clock resulting in 13 plays, 81-yards, and a touchdown, it didn’t look like a good start. Things looked to get even worse when the Bills had to punt on the next two series. But eventually, the Bills managed to step it up with quarterback Tyrod Taylor throwing a 6-yard pass to wide receiver Andre Holmes to tie the game. That touchdown seemed to get the ball rolling for Taylor, as after that he was near perfect.

Taylor was elusive with his legs, avoiding pressure from the Raiders defense and getting first downs to keep drives alive. Taylor finished the game going 20 for 27 with 165-yards passing, one touchdown and even managed to get a 1-yard score on the ground. Once again Taylor finished the game with zero turnovers. Taylor now has eight touchdowns on the season and two interceptions.
