Ryan Fitzpatrick didn’t mince words when discussing the Jets’ quarterback battle on Sunday. 

Fitzpatrick was benched in favor of Geno Smith but Smith was injured in the first half and Fitzpatrick was at the helm for a comeback victory. 

After the game, Fitzpatrick said more than once that he feels the team brass doesn’t believe in him.

Fitzpatrick completed 9 of 14 passes for 120 yards and a touchdown in the win. It was only his second game this season without a turnover. He leads the NFL with 11 interceptions in seven games, including a six-interception outing in Week 3. 

With the win, the Jets improved to 2–5 on the season.
