Ryan Fitzpatrick sets unusual NFL record by beating Jaguars
The Jets quarterback became the first quarterback to beat the same team with five different franchises.
A thumb injury last week spoiled Ryan Fitzpatrick's chance to become the first quarterback to beat the Raiders with four different teams. That thumb injury didn't prevent Fitzpatrick from starting for the Jets on Sunday and leading them to a win over the Jaguars. And, finally, Fitzpatrick made the most of his chance to make some weird NFL history.
On Sunday, Fitzpatrick became the quarterback to beat the same franchise with five different teams.
Ryan Fitzpatrick is the 1st QB in NFL history to start and win against the same opponent (JAX) for 5 different teams. #JAXvsNYJ— NFL (@NFL) November 8, 2015
In case you're wondering about the specifics, Fitzpatrick has topped the Jaguars with the Bengals (2008), Bills (2012), Titans (2013), Texans (2014), and now the Jets (2015).
Fitzpatrick is scheduled to become a free agent in the offseason. I can't wait to see what team he beats the Jaguars with next season.
