The Buffalo Bills are making major moves in week 16 of the regular season.  They have fired their head coach Rex Ryan and they are planning to bench their starting quarterback as well.

Rex Ryan was fired today, and this was a statement released by owner’s Kim and Terry Pegula:

I spoke with Rex earlier today and we mutually agreed that the time to part ways is now. These decisions are never easy. I want to take this opportunity to thank Rex for all his efforts and wish him all the best moving forward.”

“Kim and I and our entire Bills organization share in the same disappointment and frustration as our fans, but we remain committed to our goal of bringing a championship to Western New York.”

“Anthony Lynn will serve as our interim head coach to lead us through the Jets game.”+

Adam Schefter reports that the ‪Bills are planning to bench QB Tyrod Taylor for their regular season finale against the Jets and start EJ Manuel, as a business decision. According to Schefter, Bills are trying to prevent themselves from being at risk of guaranteeing Taylor the $30.75 million left on his contract if he were to suffer a significant injury.
