Ryan Fitzpatrick took the field for nine different NFL teams during his 17-year career in the league. While reflecting on his recent decision to retire, the QB made it clear that one team he suited up for stood above the rest.
Fitzpatrick joined ‘The Adam Schefter Podcast‘ and explained that no fanbase or stadium made him feel more “at home” than when he was a Buffalo Bill.
“I don’t know if I’ve ever felt more at home in a stadium or with a fanbase, and I was in Buffalo for four years, but those are my people,” Fitzpatrick said.
“I feel like I understand them and they understand me.”
Fitzpatrick talking so highly about his time in Buffalo shouldn’t come as a surprise. From everything we’ve seen from ‘Fitzmagic’ both on and off the field, it would make sense that he fit right in with the rowdy, fun, easygoing Bills fans and the culture in Buffalo.
Fitzpatrick’s time in Buffalo wasn’t exactly great, however. He went just 20-33 as a starter for the Bills while throwing 80 touchdowns and 64 interceptions.
Despite playing for nine different NFL teams, Fitzpatrick finished his NFL career with the most career passing yards (34,990) and most career passing TDs (223) without an NFL playoff appearance.
Nevertheless, Fitzpatrick is one of the most overall beloved QBs of the last decade.
