College career[edit] While a mathematics student at Harvard, Fitzpatrick had five starts during the 2001 and 2002 seasons, working as the backup for Neil Rose. In 2001, he amassed deep passing yards and a pair of touchdowns. He followed that in 2002 by collecting 1,155 yards, eight touchdowns and no interceptions. He also ran for five scores and 523 yards that year. Fitzpatrick took over the starting job in 2003 following Rose's graduation. Fitzpatrick finished his junior campaign with 1,770 yards, 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions in seven games. Additionally, he ran for 430 yards and six rushing touchdowns, leading his team to a 7–3 record.[3] In 2004, Fitzpatrick earned Ivy League
Ivy League
MVP honors (Asa S. Bushnell Cup), as he accumulated 1,986 yards with 13 touchdowns and six interceptions. He also led Harvard to a 10–0 record, thus winning the Ivy League
Ivy League
Championship.[4] He ranked second on the team with 448 rushing yards and five scores. For his career, Fitzpatrick connected on 384 of 641 passes (59.9 percent) for 5,234 yards, 39 touchdowns and 21 interceptions. He collected 1,487 yards with 16 scores on 365 carries (4.1 avg.) and totaled 6,721 yards, an average of 224.0 yards per game, while seeing action in 30 contests. He ranks second on Harvard's career list for pass completions, touchdowns, yards passing and pass completion percentage, topped only by Neil Rose (5,949 yards, 41 touchdowns, 455 completions, 62.4 percent, 1998–2002). His 641 pass attempts rank fourth in school history. His 1,006 total plays for 6,721 yards in total offense broke the old school career records of 1,005 plays by Mike Giardi (1991–93) and 6,519 yards by Rose. Professional career[edit] Pre-draft[edit] As is the case for most incoming NFL
NFL
rookies, Fitzpatrick took the Wonderlic Test. Rumors have indicated that Fitzpatrick recorded a 50 on the test in nine minutes, signifying a perfect score.[5] However, according to a The Wall Street Journal
The Wall Street Journal
report that appeared in the September 30, 2005, edition, Fitzpatrick scored a 48 on the exam, not a 50—still considered an exceptionally high score, but the claim that he completed the test in nine minutes is accurate. While his actual score is unknown, he has acknowledged that he left at least one question blank.[6] As the Wonderlic score is the number of correct answers to 50 questions, the best he could have scored would be a 49. To date, Fitzpatrick has the highest Wonderlic Test
Wonderlic Test
score ever achieved among NFL
NFL
quarterbacks. The only player to earn a verified perfect score on the Wonderlic test was also a Harvard graduate: wide receiver/punter Pat McInally, who played his entire career with the Cincinnati Bengals.[7]

St. Louis Rams[edit] Fitzpatrick was drafted by the St. Louis Rams

in the seventh round of the 2005 NFL Draft
2005 NFL Draft
with the 250th overall pick.[9] He played his first NFL
NFL
game on November 27, 2005. Coming into the eleventh game of the regular season in the second quarter against the Houston Texans
Houston Texans
to replace injured veteran journeyman Jamie Martin, Fitzpatrick led the Rams from a 24–3 halftime deficit to a 33–27 overtime win, throwing for 310 yards and three touchdowns, completing 63.3% of his passes and 117.4 QB rating for the game.[10] He earned NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his effort.[11] This made Fitzpatrick one of only seven players who passed for more 300 yards in their NFL
NFL
debut. The others were Otto Graham, 346 yards (1950); Ed Rubbert, 334 (a replacement player for the Washington Redskins
Washington Redskins
during the 1987 strike); Mark Rypien, 303 (1988), Peyton Manning, 302 (1998), Cam Newton, 422 (2011), Robert Griffin III, 320 (2012), and Andrew Luck, 309 (2012). The win earned him the next three starts, making Fitzpatrick the first Harvard quarterback to start an NFL
NFL
game.[12] He was unable to duplicate his debut performance in the games he started with the Rams coming two weeks later in a 13–27 loss to the Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota Vikings
in which he threw for 235 yards, no touchdowns, and five interceptions for a QB rating of 32.4 for the game.[13] He was replaced by Martin after halftime the following week, after struggling in a home game against the Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles
in which he completed just 41.7% of his passes for a total of 69 yards.[14] In the 2006 season, Fitzpatrick only appeared in one game. In Week 17 against the Minnesota Vikings, he appeared late in the game in relief of Marc Bulger
Marc Bulger
and ran out the clock of the 41–21 victory.[15] In the 2007 season, Fitzpatrick recorded no meaningful statistics in his third professional season.[16] Cincinnati Bengals[edit] On September 1, 2007, Fitzpatrick was traded to the Bengals for a seventh-round pick in the 2008 NFL
NFL
Draft.[14] A restricted free agent in the 2008 offseason, Fitzpatrick signed his one-year tender offer from the Bengals on April 17. Due to an injury to starting quarterback Carson Palmer, Fitzpatrick made his first Bengals start on September 28, 2008 against the Cleveland Browns. Fitzpatrick was not only the leading passer, but also the leading rusher in the Bengals' 20–12 loss.[17] With Carson Palmer
Carson Palmer
sitting out the game on October 12, 2008, Fitzpatrick got the start against the New York Jets, and every other game that season.[18] During the 2008 NFL
NFL
season, Fitzpatrick ranked third in rushing yards among quarterbacks, finishing behind Tyler Thigpen

and David Garrard.[19] Buffalo Bills[edit]

2009[edit] Fitzpatrick signed with the Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills
on February 27, 2009 to a 3-year $7.405 million contract.[20] He made his first appearance on October 18, 2009 against the New York Jets
New York Jets
when starter Trent Edwards went down with an injury, leading the Bills to a 16–13 overtime win, while throwing for 116 yards with a touchdown and an interception.[21] Fitzpatrick started the following two games, resulting in a win over the Panthers and loss to the Texans.[22][23] On November 18, 2009, he was named the starting quarterback of the Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills
by interim head coach Perry Fewell who took over the coaching duties after former head coach Dick Jauron was fired. He went 3–3 as a starter under Fewell, throwing seven touchdowns, six interceptions and 1060 yards. Overall, Fitzpatrick went 5–4 in games in which he had a majority of the playing time for a team that finished with a 6–10 record. In week eleven of the 2009 season in a game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Fitzpatrick threw a 98-yard touchdown pass to Terrell Owens, the longest touchdown reception and pass for both Owens and Fitzpatrick, also setting the team record for longest touchdown pass. The Bills went on to lose to the Jaguars 18–15.[24][25][26] Overall, in the 2009 season, Fitzpatrick finished with 1,422 passing yards, nine touchdowns, and ten interceptions.[27] 2010[edit] Despite the strong showing, new head coach Chan Gailey decided to go with Trent Edwards
Trent Edwards
as the starter for the 2010 season, relegating Fitzpatrick to the backup role. On September 20, 2010, Fitzpatrick was named the new starting quarterback following the Bills 0–2 start.[28] In a 49–31 comeback win over the Cincinnati Bengals, Fitzpatrick threw for 316 yards and 4 touchdowns, including 3 to Stevie Johnson.[29] This performance marked the first time in NFL
NFL
history that a team had come back from 17 points down to win by 18 or more.[citation needed] 2011[edit] During the second week of the 2011 season, Fitzpatrick led the Bills to touchdown drives on five straight possessions in the second half to rally past the Raiders.[30] It was the first time in league history a team had scored offensive touchdowns on five straight possessions in the second half.[31] In the 2011 season, Fitzpatrick was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for September. On October 28, 2011, Fitzpatrick signed a six-year, $59 million contract extension including a $10 million signing bonus with the Bills.[32] He had three 300-yard performances in the 2011 season, with a season high 369 yards vs. the Patriots.[33] After the 2011 season, it was revealed that Fitzpatrick had broken his ribs in a game against the Washington Redskins, which was presumably a factor in his decline in play over the rest of the season. Fitzpatrick finished the 2011 season with 3,832 yards and 24 touchdowns, but threw a league-leading 23 interceptions.[34] 2012[edit] Fitzpatrick returned as the Bills' starter during the 2012 season, throwing for 3,400 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 16 interceptions.[35] Following Chan Gailey's firing after the season, the Bills opted not to hold on to Fitzpatrick, releasing him on March 12, 2013.[36] Tennessee Titans[edit] On March 18, 2013, Fitzpatrick signed a two-year contract with the Tennessee Titans.[37] He replaced Jake Locker
Jake Locker
for the Titans in Week 4 due to an injury in the third quarter. Fitzpatrick completed 3 of his 8 passes for 108 yards, which included a 77-yard TD pass to Nate Washington, in a 38–13 win against the Jets.[38] Fitzpatrick played in 11 games and started 9 of them. He finished the season with a 3–6 record as the starting quarterback, beating division rivals the Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars
and the Houston Texans
Houston Texans
in the final two games of the season. He completed the season throwing for 2,454 yards with 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.[39] Fitzpatrick was released on March 14, 2014, and replaced by Charlie Whitehurst.[40] Houston Texans[edit]

Fitzpatrick in 2014

On March 18, 2014, Fitzpatrick signed a two-year contract with the Houston Texans.[41] He was named the Texans' starting quarterback by new Head Coach Bill O'Brien on June 17,[42] but was demoted to second on the Houston Texans

depth chart on November 5, 2014, replaced as starter by Ryan Mallett. On November 23, 2014, Mallett tore his pectoral muscle and Fitzpatrick was renamed the starter.[43] On November 30, 2014 in a 45–21 win against the Tennessee Titans
Tennessee Titans
in Week 13, Fitzpatrick threw for a franchise-record six touchdowns and 358 yards with no interceptions and a 147.5 passer rating.[44] He earned AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his effort against the Titans.[45] On December 14, 2014 during the second quarter against the Indianapolis Colts, Fitzpatrick scrambled for a two-yard gain, was tripped up, and ended up with a fractured tibia, ending his season. He was replaced by rookie Tom Savage, who also received a minor injury, and the Texans lost 10–17.[46] Despite his season-ending injury, Fitzpatrick had a solid season, throwing for 2,483 yards with 17 touchdowns and 8 interceptions for a career-high 95.3 passer rating. He finished the season with a 6–6 record as the starting quarterback for the Texans.[47] New York Jets[edit] 2015[edit]

On March 11, 2015, Fitzpatrick was traded by the Houston Texans

for a late-round conditional draft pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.[48][49] The move reunited Fitzpatrick with his former Head Coach Chan Gailey, who was hired during the off-season as the Jets offensive coordinator and play-caller. Following an incident in the locker room, where starting quarterback Geno Smith

Geno Smith relieved him for the rest of the game as the Jets would go on to lose 20–34. Fitzpatrick underwent thumb surgery two days later and stated that he would still start.[57] During Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Fitzpatrick threw for 272 yards with 2 touchdowns as the Jets won 28–23.[58] During Thursday Night Football against the Bills in Week 10, Fitzpatrick threw for 193 yards with 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions as the Jets lost 17–22.[59] In Week 11 against the Texans, Fitzpatrick threw for 216 yards with a touchdown and 2 interceptions as the Jets lost 17–24.[60] During a Dolphins rematch in Week 12, Fitzpatrick made his 100th career start by throwing for 277 yards with 4 touchdowns in the 38–20 victory.[61] In Week 13 against the interconference-rival New York Giants, Fitzpatrick threw for 390 yards with 2 touchdowns as the Jets won 23–20 in overtime.[62] In Week 14 against the Titans, Fitzpatrick threw for 263 yards with three touchdowns in the 30–8 blowout victory to earn AFC Offensive Player of the Week.[63][64] During Saturday Night Football against the Dallas Cowboys

The Jets not only lost 17–22, but were also eliminated from playoff contention after the Steelers' win over the Browns, despite finishing the year with a 10–6 record.[69] In 16 starts of the 2015 season, Fitzpatrick finished with his best year as a pro, 3,905 passing yards and 31 passing touchdowns along with 15 interceptions, breaking Vinny Testaverde's 1998 franchise record for most touchdown passes in a season.[70][71] 2016[edit] Fitzpatrick, a free agent after the conclusion of the 2015 season, signed a one-year fully guaranteed $12 million contract with the Jets on July 27, 2016.[72] Opening the season against the Cincinnati Bengals

and Indianapolis Colts.[81] However, during the Colts game, he was benched in favor of Petty to start the second half.[83] Petty was then named the starter for the final four games of the season. Jets head coach Todd Bowles said, "The plan was for us to start him the last four games anyway, so we just started a half early."[84] Petty then started the next three games against the San Francisco 49ers, Miami Dolphins
