Bills not underestimating Taylor Heinicke

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WHEC) — We’ve heard about the connections between Washington and Buffalo earlier in the week, but what about how Ron Rivera’s squad has faired through two weeks?

The football team comes off of a few extra days’ rest after taking down the giants last Thursday, a game they won with a late field goal.

It was their first win of the year and their first game with Taylor Heinicke starting under center. The QB replaced Ryan Fitzpatrick who left the season opener with a hip injury.

He’s played in just 10 games through four years, but Bills Head Coach Sean McDermott doesn’t underestimate him.

"Don’t underestimate him," McDermott said. "He’s a very good quarterback. You look at the Tampa Bay game […] and he’s within a score there in the fourth quarter of winning, so don’t underestimate him. He’s a very, very good quarterback, can make all the throws, he’s mobile, he’ll be a challenge."
