Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 4 vs MIA (16 / 29 / 218 / 1 / 1 pass, 9 / 34 / 0 rush)

Ryan Fitzpatrick had all of his main weapons at his disposal, but turned in a mediocre individual performance. Fitzpatrick benefitted from a dominant effort from his offensive line, which buoyed a 204-yard rushing attack. Fitzpatrick, however, forced some throws and could have picked off three or four times by Miami's defense. Fitzpatrick did manage a few strong throws, including a 57-yard strike to Brandon Marshall on New York's first play and a tight throw to Eric Decker on a post-route for a 10-yard touchdown. Fitzpatrick was also able to pick up first downs with his legs, picking up 34 yards when Miami opted to sit in deep zone coverage. Fitzpatrick made a few key throws, but did make some mistakes that will hopefully get ironed out during the bye week. Since New York enters its bye week with a 3-1 record, a quarterback change won't likely be made.

2015 Week 3 vs PHI (35 / 58 / 283 / 2 / 3 pass, 4 / 13 / 0 rush)

Without two of his top playmakers, Fitzpatrick attempted to lead an offense that was clearly limited. After falling into an early double digit hole, New York's game plan revolved around force feeding Brandon Marshall, who was regularly double teamed. New York's offensive line was also dominated at the line of scrimmage and regularly lost their one-on-one assignments. These issues snowballed and ultimately resulted in turnovers. Fitzpatrick attempted a season-high 58 pass attempts and threw three interceptions. Fitzpatrick's third interception went through Marshall's hands and ultimately sealed the victory for Philadelphia. Fitzpatrick did throw two touchdown passes, one to Marshall and one late touchdown strike to Jeremy Kerley. Right before halftime, Fitzpatrick found Marshall on a deep post route for a relatively easy score. Late in the fourth quarter, Fitzpatrick threw a dart to Kerley on a post route that was reminiscent of the strike that Fitzpatrick threw to Eric Decker in Week 2. Fitzpatrick was signed to manage games, but New York's porous effort on special teams, lackluster defensive play and overmatched offensive line put him in situations where he couldn't succeed.

2015 Week 2 vs IND (22 / 34 / 244 / 2 / 1 pass, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)

With the Jets controlling field position, the star of Monday Night Football in Week 2 was the Jets defense as Ryan Fitzpatrick and Andrew Luck traded punts most of the night. Fitzpatrick got his first win at Lucas Oil Stadium and finished the game 23 of 34 for 244 yards and two touchdowns with one interception. He threw a touchdown to both Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall. On the first drive of the game it was clear that the Jets were going to take advantage of this zone defense scheme of the Colts as they went back to back plays to Eric Decker for 12 and 14 yards respectively on crossing routes. After an Andrew Luck interception Fitzpatrick wastes no time taking advantage hitting Eric Decker on a 6-yard touchdown pass in the slot. This gave the Jets an early 7-0 lead in the first quarter. Late in the first quarter Fitzpatrick got number one receiver Brandon Marshall involved as well as he throws a great pass on third down that Marshall turns into a 42-yard gain. Fitzpatrick recognized the zone coverage drop down into the flat and was able to connect with Marshall after he adjusted his route. In the second quarter Fitzpatrick is picked off when trying to pass downfield to Brandon Marshall. Colts cornerback Vontae Davis, who has been physically covering Marshall all night, tips the ball into pro-bowler Mike Adams hands in the end zone who makes a great play to get both feet in bounds. After yet another Andrew Luck turnover, Fitzpatrick picks up right where he left off in the first half, effortlessly hitting Eric Decker in zone coverage. The injuries to the Indianapolis corners doesn't allow them to play man coverage against the talented Jets receivers but Decker is literally getting open at will. Fitzpatrick does take another shot deep to Marshall in double coverage but the ball is knocked down and the drive ends in a field goal. After Eric Decker goes down with an apparent knee injury in the second half as well as top Colts Corner Vontae Davis out of the game, Fitzpatrick really got going with Brandon Marshall. He threw his second touchdown pass of the night on a back shoulder throw to Marshal battling through three defenders on his back to cross the goal line. This pushed the lead back to 10 points late in the 4th quarter where the Jets defense would come up with another turnover allowing Fitzpatrick to milk the clock.

2015 Week 1 vs CLE (15 / 24 / 179 / 2 / 1 pass, 2 / -1 / 0 rush)

Ryan Fitzpatrick was very solid in his start as a member of the Jets. Fitzpatrick, who is known as a game manager, did an excellent job of keeping Cleveland's defense off-balance by intermixing quick completions with Chris Ivory's hard-nosed runs. Fitzpatrick threw two touchdown passes, one to Eric Decker on a corner route and one to Brandon Marshall on a fade. Fitzpatrick's touchdown pass to Marshall was completed relatively easy due to Marshall's pure stature against a smaller corner, Joe Haden. Marshall gives Fitzpatrick a physical, dominant red zone presence. Fitzpatrick did throw one interception, but was luckily bailed out by Marshall, who stripped the ball away from the defender. Fitzpatrick commanded Chan Gailey's offenses effectively and let Chris Ivory dominate in early down situations.
