The Jets, apparently, didn’t have enough Ryan Fitzpatrick in their lives, because here he comes again, with the potential to screw up their season again. Fitzpatrick replaces Jameis Winston this week, and he won’t have the suspended Mike Evans to help. It’s a chance to get the rest of the Bucs weapons to step up … but also a chance for the Jets defense to tee off on him.
