The Tampa Bay Buccaneers pulled Ryant Fitzpatrick in the middle of his disastrous performance against the New York Giants in the third quarter of Sunday's game. Former No. 1 overall pick, Jameis Winston, was inserted as the starting quarterback in Fitzpatrick's place.
In comes #Bucs QB Jameis Winston to replace Ryan Fitzpatrick for Tampa Bay. Another QB change in a season full of them.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 18, 2018
Fitzpatrick was 13/21 passing with 167 yards and three interceptions before being taken out in favor of Winston.
We have now seen this a handful of times this year from the Bucs, going back and forth between Fitzpatrick and Winston, depending on who was playing worse. This same scenario happened earlier in the year when Winston replaced Fitzpatrick in the Bucs game against the Chicago Bears.
Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown 2 interceptions today and now has 11 for the season.— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) November 18, 2018
The Buccaneers are the first team since the 2014 Eagles (Mark Sanchez, Nick Foles) to have two quarterbacks who each have thrown 10 interceptions.
Who will be next week's starter is anyone's guess, but you have to imagine it all depends on how Winston closes out the game against the Giants.
