Who is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ quarterback and what has he done with the real Ryan Fitzpatrick?
After lighting up the New Orleans Saints with a historic Week 1 performance, the 35-year-old Fitzpatrick picked up right where he left off Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
On Tampa Bay’s very first play from scrimmage, Fitzpatrick unleashed a perfect deep pass to wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who burned the Eagles’ secondary for a 75-yard touchdown.
Many expected Fitzpatrick to be a mere placeholder until starter Jameis Winston returns from his three-game suspension, but if the journeyman quarterback keeps this up, the Bucs may have to think twice about who they start in Week 4.
