Bills RB Karlos Williams: Tyrod Taylor is the G.O.A.T.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Tyrod Taylor might have thrown the game-sealing interception in the Buffalo Bills' 23-20 loss last Sunday to the Philadelphia Eagles, but rookie running back Karlos Williams doesn't consider Taylor to be the goat of the team.

In fact, Williams believes that Taylor is the G.O.A.T. -- or, for those who aren't well familiar with that term, the "greatest of all time."

Williams revealed his opinion when a reporter Wednesday asked, "Do you think Tyrod Taylor is" before pausing.

"He's the G.O.A.T.," Williams interrupted. "He's the G.O.A.T., in my opinion. Obviously, Tyrod played at Virginia Tech, and my brother [Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Vince Williams] played at Florida State for a while. And the first ACC Championship [in 2010] my brother played in, he played against Tyrod. They beat Florida State -- they killed Florida State -- and they went on to play in the Orange Bowl.

"So I've seen him play at a high level. Here, he had a chance to be that leader. He's been that leader, to be able to make plays. He has, what, one of the best [quarterback ratings] in the NFL? He makes plays when they have to be made. When we had a lot of guys out vs. Tennessee [in Week 5], he took over that game. ... He takes things when they're not supposed to be for him, and that's the kind of thing that you need in the locker room."
