The New York Jets just cannot lose to former friend and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, per Matt Castillo of ESNY Video.
The New York Jets will look to win their second game in a row on Sunday when they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In order to get their second win in a row, they’ll have to beat their former quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick was the Jets quarterback the last two seasons.
When he first took over in 2015 after Geno Smith was punched in the face by IK Enemkpali breaking his jaw. Fitzpatrick had an amazing 2015-16 season throwing for 3,905 yards. He also set the franchise single-season passing touchdowns mark with 31.
Two summers ago, he experienced a long-lasting offseason negotiation standoff with the Jets. But early on in training camp, the Jets reached a deal with him.
It was a decision that would cost the Jets dearly as he had a miserable season. He suffered through a 3-8 record while throwing 17 interceptions to just 12 passing touchdowns.
Through the misery of watching his awful play last season, nothing would make fans happier than see the Jets dominate Fitzpatrick.
According to Rich Cimini of ESPN, Fitzpatrick said, “The feelings won’t be warm and fuzzy on Sunday,” when facing the Jets.
With the way last season went for Fitzpatrick, he is going to want to beat the Jets badly. They simply just can’t let that happen
