This “Fitz-magic” might have turned into a dark magic. In three of the games Ryan Fitzpatrick has not started this season, he has still ended up throwing 10 or more passes. He could get the starting nod one last time in the Jets’ finale against the Bills.
The 49ers are 2-0 against the Rams this season and 0-13 against everyone else. Are 49ers fans going to remember QB Colin Kaepernick’s two-point conversion play as a great moment in a down season, or as a play that cost the team the top pick in the 2017 draft?
Jared Goff is 0-6 as a starter this season. Johnny Manziel (2014) is the only first-round rookie QB to go winless with multiple starts since 1995. Goff looks to avoid that dubious distinction against the Cardinals in Week 17.
Limited Youth Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey But the Browns also had to play as if it mattered. And this time of year, the plain fact is that not every team does. Just look at what the New York Jets did at New England for an example of what it looks like when a team has no reason to get up for a game and therefore doesn’t. It’s ugly to say and uglier to watch, but it does happen.
Limited Youth Phil Esposito Jersey So don’t overlook the significance of Cleveland’s first — and potentially only — win of the season. It says something about Browns coach Hue Jackson that he found a way to motivate his players when very little about this season had shown them they were capable of winning or that it would matter if they did.
Yeah, the Browns were in a few games early in the season, but prior to Saturday, they had lost their past six games by an average of 18 points. They still have no idea who their quarterback is, nor do they appear to have many building-block players on their roster. This is a team built on draft picks it hasn’t made yet, and most of the players on the roster won’t be there by the time the team is any good. If ever there was a group that had reason to fold up the tent, this was it.
