After two solid performances in the first two games, Ryan Fitzpatrick underlined how this Jets team isn't really built to come from behind, as the team's efforts to recover from a 24-0 deficit came up short with Fitzpatrick throwing three interceptions after that point.

Fitzpatrick missed some opportunities, both in terms of not seeing open receivers and also with a series of off-target throws. Still, about halfway through the second quarter, he had completed two-thirds of his passes and had a quarterback rating of over 90. From that point onwards, his number reflected his performance more accurately though.
