Mark Sanchez backs up Sam Bradford, who has thrown for 948 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions through four games.  Things might be working out better for Taylor in Buffalo (988 yards, eight touchdowns and four picks) than they would have in Philadelphia, anyway. As the starter, he will receive a nice incentive if the Bills make the playoffs — up to $3 million in bonuses on top of his salary of $750,000, according to Rapoport. "Throughout the process, I thought this opportunity was the best for an open competition," Taylor told Sporting News in May. "That’s what I’d always felt throughout the offseason, and I had confidence in what I could do when I got that chance."The Bills (2-2) go on the road to play the Eagles (1-3) in Week 14.
