This is how we all felt, Fitz.
The Jets always have had a great game plan when playing Ryan Fitzpatrick. It continued into 2012, when the defensive backs seemed to know exactly what Fitzpatrick was going to run before the ball was snapped. Fitzpatrick threw three interceptions, and all of them were his fault.
The Bills were coming off an interception of Sanchez when Fitzpatrick started his first drive. A few plays in, he threw a ball to Stevie Johnson, his favorite target.
Should Johnson have come back to the ball? Absolutely, but Fitzpatrick is at fault for trying to throw the ball that late into Johnson's break. Revis read the play beautifully and simply stepped in front of the pass.
Kyle Wilson, the Jets' slot corner, made a great read of a Fitzpatrick pass. Much like Revis, he simply jumped the route. Fitzpatrick should have seen the tight coverage, but he seemingly believed he could squeeze the pass into the tight coverage. It was simply Fitzpatrick trying to be a gunslinger.
Fitzpatrick saved his worst interception for last.
On a play where Fitzpatrick was looking to find David Nelson, Antonio Cromartie read the play and let Donald Jones run downfield, where he was being covered by one of the Jets' safeties. Cromartie simply followed Fitzpatrick's eyes and was hit in the midsection with Fitzpatrick's third interception of the game. The interception and consequent touchdown were too easy, and the interception was embarrassing.
The Bills have a tendency of giving out contracts a bit too early in seasons. Last year, Fitzpatrick signed a $59 million deal after his strong start, and after receiving his payday, Fitzpatrick's play has plummeted.
The Bills also extended Dick Jauron's contract in 2008 after he had the Bills out to a strong start. Needless to say, that extension didn't work out, either.
Right now, Fitzpatrick has a lot to prove to show that he isn't a $59 million mistake.
