‘FitzMagic’ part 9: Fitzpatrick takes reins as Washington QB

AP Sports Writer

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Ryan Fitzpatrick says he did not need the public declaration from Ron Rivera that he’s Washington starting quarterback.

Washington will be the ninth team Fitzpatrick has started for in 17 NFL seasons. Fitzpatrick at 38 believes he’s a better passer than earlier in his career and his improved touchdown-to-interception ratio shows he has improved with age. He also thinks this is a unique opportunity for him while armed with so much experience to run an offense effectively.
