Ryan Fitzpatrick was the star of the first two weeks of the NFL season. But at least during the first half of Week 3’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Fitzmagic was lacking.
Fitzpatrick was intercepted three times before halftime. This included one pick deep in Pittsburgh territory, and another pick-six in his own territory.
It did not go well, and, as was the case when things were going well, Twitter had a lot to do about his struggles.

"There is literally no performance terrible enough by Ryan Fitzpatrick to get Jameis Winston the start in Week 4."

Ryan Fitzpatrick may have to wear a disguise to the postgame podium at this rate.

And there were many more out there. It was certainly a rough performance from the veteran quarterback.
