Buffalo Bills release turnover-prone quarterback Nathan Peterman

The Nathan Peterman era that never should've went as long as it did is finally over after the Buffalo Bills finally made a decision to pull the plug on the horrendous quarterback on Monday.

Peterman also started the Bills' 41-9 Week 9 loss to the Bears.

He received the season-opening start despite a 2017 performance that saw him throw five interceptions and two touchdowns in two starts. Derek Anderson is the third quarterback on Buffalo's roster, and has missed two games because of a concussion. All five of those interceptions came in the first half of a debacle against the Los Angeles Chargers after McDermott benched Tyrod Taylor in favor of Peterman.

Peterman has struggled as Buffalo's signal-caller, and the Bills went with Matt Barkley over him as the starting QB on Sunday against the Jets.

I consider the performance of my team one with mistakes. "If we keep going like this, we can achieve a lot in the future". Manchester United's Juan Mata clashes with Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling towards the end of the match.

Among all NFL quarterbacks since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger with as many pass attempts, Peterman's interception rate of 9.23 percent is the third-highest, behind those of Kim McQuilken (10.7) and Don Horn (9.34).

After losing their fourth straight game this weekend, the Jets are tied for last place in the AFC East with the Bills with a 3-7 record. He was the second free-agent quarterback to sign with the Bills since the regular season began.

Whoever starts, Bills fans can take comfort there will be zero chance they see Peterman take the field again.
