The Buccaneers followed up their Week 1 shootout victory over the Saints with a big 27-21 win over the Super Bowl champion Eagles. The biggest surprise of Tampa Bay’s 2-0 start has been the play of quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
The 35-year-old, who is starting because starter Jameis Winston is suspended, has thrown for 819 yards and 8 touchdowns. He’s playing so well he might not be giving the starting job back to Winston.
Fitzpatrick’s fantastic postgame outfit following the win over Philadelphia doesn’t look like the outfit of a guy prepared to give up the starting job anytime soon. The rest of the league is in big trouble.
Why the outfit? Fitzpatrick: “We just have to stay humble.” Says the bling around his neck is pretty heavy. pic.twitter.com/Iedaxi7JIG
