Jameis Winston Replaces Ryan Fitzpatrick In 2nd Half Of Buccaneers' 48-10 Loss
Up up to now, the Ryan Fitzpatrick renaissance has been all the craze in Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers quarterback has led his offensive unit with confidence within the face of adversity (principally his fame). His profession thus far has been a combined bag; when expectations are lowered, or non-existent, Fitz usually regarded the a part of a famous person. Any time he is come into sole possession of a beginning gig, he is discovered a approach to muck it up. But that does not start to elucidate his staff's meltdown this afternoon towards the Chicago Bears. Needless to say, one thing compelled his coach to exchange him for the start of the 2nd half.
Bear in thoughts, coach Dirk Koetter might have solely changed Fitzpatrick to encourage the remainder of his teammates, like a sacrificial lamb. But the transfer to bench Fitzpatrick does include the added bonus of reminding us all former Heisman winner was hiding on the bench ready for his likelihood.
Jameis Winston's 2nd half play, which noticed him complete 145 yards, a landing and two interceptions, for a 16-of-19 completion price, will not go down in historical past as a fantastic compensatory effort, but it surely does make one factor sure: the Buccaneers are actually in an unenble place the place they have to select one among two choices that would resolve the destiny of their season. Ryan Fitzpatrick completed his half of the sport with a completion price of 9 of 18 passes for 126 yards, and one interception caught by Bears' security Eddie Jackson. The loss strikes the Bucs all the way down to the third place within the divisional standings.
