Bills Pull The Plug On Peterman

ORCHARD PARK – The Buffalo Bills have cut quarterback Nathan Peterman after a string of poor performances during his tenure in Buffalo. 
Peterman was a fifth-round draft pick in 2017 out of the University of Pittsburgh.
In his NFL debut, Peterman came into the game against the New Orleans Saints in mop-up duty for Tyrod Taylor trailing 47-3. Peterman finished his debut completing seven of 10 passes for 79 yards and one touchdown in the Bills 47-10 loss.
In Peterman’s first career start against the Los Angeles Chargers, Peterman set a record, throwing five interceptions in his first career start. Peterman would be benched in favor of Taylor in the second half of a 54-24 loss.
Peterman started one more game that season against the Colts, completing five of 10 passes for 57 yards and one touchdown before leaving with a concussion.
The QB finished his rookie season with two touchdowns and five interceptions.
In Buffalo’s 2018 season opener against the Baltimore Ravens, Peterman was named the starter. Once again, he would be benched, this time in favor of rookie quarterback Josh Allen. Peterman completed five of 18 passes for only 24 yards and two interceptions. Peterman also had a quarterback rating of zero for the game.
In week six against the Houston Texans, Peterman was put back into duty after Allen sprained his UCL. Peterman threw one touchdown, but also threw two costly interceptions in a 20-13 loss.
After Derek Anderson suffered a concussion, Peterman was put back in the starting lineup against the Chicago Bears. Peterman would throw three interceptions in a 41-9 loss.
With the poor performances continuing, Peterman was again benched in favor of newest Bills add-in, Matt Barkley.
With Barkley leading Buffalo to a 41-10 win over the Jets, the team decided to cut Peterman.
Peterman finished his career in Buffalo completing 68-130 passes. Peterman threw for 548 yards, three touchdowns, and 12 interceptions. Peterman’s quarterback rating was a paltry 32.5.
