Up thus far, the Ryan Fitzpatrick renaissance has been all the craze in Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers quarterback has led his fensive unit with confidence within the face adversity (principally his repute). His profession to this point has been a blended bag; when expectations are lowered, or non-existent, Fitz ten appeared the half a celebrity. Any time he is come into sole possession a beginning gig, he is discovered a approach to muck it up. But that does not start to elucidate his workforce’s meltdown this afternoon towards the Chicago Bears. Needless to say, one thing compelled his coach to switch him for the start the 2nd half.
Bear in thoughts, coach Dirk Koetter could have solely changed Fitzpatrick to encourage the remaining his teammates, like a sacrificial lamb. But the transfer to bench Fitzpatrick does include the added bonus reminding us all former Heisman winner was hiding on the bench ready for his probability.
Jameis Winston’s 2nd half play, which noticed him whole 145 yards, a landing and two interceptions, for a 16–19 completion price, will not go down in historical past as an excellent compensatory effort, but it surely does make one factor sure: the Buccaneers are actually in an unenble place the place they need to select one two choices that would resolve the destiny their season. Ryan Fitzpatrick completed his half the sport with a completion price 9 18 passes for 126 yards, and one interception caught by Bears’ security Eddie Jackson. The loss strikes the Bucs right down to the third place within the divisional standings.
