Ryan Fitzpatrick Named AFC Offensive Player Of The Month

Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was named the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Month for September, the team announced. Fitzpatrick completed 72-of-111 (64.9 percent) pass attempts for 841 yards with nine touchdowns and three interceptions for a 103.5 passer rating in leading the Bills to a 3-0 record. To get to 3-0, the Bills have needed to erase deficits of 18 and 21 points the last two weeks at home against the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots.

Fitzpatrick had three second-half touchdown passes against Oakland, and was 7-of-12 for 145 yards and a touchdown in the second-half against New England. “The highest compliment you can pay a quarterback is that he wins,” head coach Chan Gailey said. “It doesn’t matter whether we’re up or down or what, he keeps playing well. He’s a winner, obviously.” Fitzpatrick is the first Bills player to win the award since Drew Bledsoe in September of 2002.
