2017 Week 6 vs ARI (22 / 32 / 290 / 3 / 2 pass, 3 / 10 / 0 rush)

"Fitzmagic" was pressed into the starting role after Winston went down with a shoulder injury in the 1st quarter. Winston could be seen describing Fitzpatrick as a bit of a gunslinger in one of this preseason's "Hard Knocks" episodes, and the former Harvard QB certainly lived up to it. Scrambling on 3rd and goal at the end of the 1st half, Fitzpatrick shoved/pitched a ball in an almost underhanded motion towards OJ Howard in the back of the end zone. Howard couldn't get to the wildly thrown pass, so the offense went for it on 4th and goal. Fitzpatrick hit Mike Evans in the hands on a slant route in the end zone, but CB Patrick Peterson made a fantastic play to knock the pass loose and the Bucs left points on the field. Fitzpatrick threw an interception to start the 2nd half while looking for Desean Jackson down the left sideline. Fitzpatrick had a clean pocket and time, he just underthrew the ball and the deep safety undercut the pass. The Ivy League-gunslinger, undeterred, chunked a play action pass to Jackson on the next offensive drive for a big catch-and-run down the middle of the field. He had Evans deep on the next play, but didn't have the arm to get the ball downfield to him. Fitzpatrick found Desean Jackson for Tampa Bay's first score midway through the 3rd quarter, prompting a bit of a comeback from a 31-0 deficit. With the ball inside the 10, Tampa went 3 wide on the right side of the formation with Fitzpatrick in the shotgun. Humphries slanted out from the slot while Desean Jackson slanted in from the wide right position. Fitzpatrick threw the ball a bit behind Jackson, but the receiver was able to make a play on the ball. Fitzpatrick completely missed the snap on the ensuing 2 point attempt, leaving Charles Sims to recover and take a tackle for a loss. Fitzpatrick found Cameron Brate in the back of the end zone for another touchdown early in the 4th quarter. Tampa Bay lined up in a 4 receiver set on the Arizona 10, with Brate working up the left seam like he does so often with Jamies Winston. Fitzpatrick took the snap from the shotgun and made a beautiful pass through a couple of defenders to find Brate in the back of the end zone. Fitpatrick nearly threw another pick six from his own end zone in the 4th. After the Cardinals downed a punt inside the 1 yard line, Fitzpatrick tossed a quick pass to Mike Evans that was ripped from his hands by a closing defender. Evans managed to down the defender at the 1 yard line. Fitzpatrick found Evans for one final score late in the 4th quarter, dropping a bomb into the back right corner of the end zone for a 37 yard score. It was a mixed day for Fitzy, who missed some throws because he just didn't quite have the arm of a guy like Winston. However, he played through his mistakes and kept the offense moving, spreading the ball around to all the usual suspects in the Tampa Bay offense.
