NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The New York Jets are sticking with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback despite the team losing four of its last five games after a 4-1 start to the season.
Coach Todd Bowles says Monday that there wasn't much discussion as far as making a change to Geno Smith at the position. Fitzpatrick threw interceptions to end each of the Jets' last two drives Sunday in a disappointing 24-17 loss at Houston.
Bowles says Fitzpatrick missed some throws in the game, but adds that the entire team has lots to correct.
Fitzpatrick insisted that he's "the right man for the job" to help get the Jets moving back in the right direction. He says he had no problems while playing for the first time since having his left thumb surgically repaired.
