Los Angeles Chargers Name Starting Quarterback


With the 2020 NFL Season starting next week, the Los Angeles Chargers have named their starting quarterback for their Week 1 matchup at the Cincinnati Bengals. They have selected Tyrod Taylor. Taylor was the backup quarterback for the team last season.

Background on Tyrod Taylor

Back in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens selected Tyrod Taylor in the sixth round. He sat behind Joe Flaco from 2011-2014. In 2015, he finally got his chance at the starting job when he was dealt to the Buffalo Bills. During his time in Buffalo, he was 22-20. Then in 2018, Taylor was signed to be the starting quarterback. In the first two games of the season, Tyrod went 1-1 and was benched during Week 3.

Who is Tyrod Taylor Replacing?

Entering the 2020 NFL Season he is replacing longtime starting quarterback Philip Rivers, who is now the starter for the Indianapolis Colts. Rivers had been with the Chargers since the 2005 season, when Drew Brees went down with a bad shoulder injury that had him sent to the Saints in 2006.
