Despite Awful Effort, Dolphins to Stick with Ryan Fitzpatrick as Starting QB

Sunday was an awful day anyway you cut it for the Dolphins, and it looks like it could be a historically bad season for the Fins.

While there’s questions about what direction the team will go in after their 59-10 loss to the Ravens, the team will be staying with Ryan Fitzpatrick as the starter when the team takes on the Patriots Sunday.

“It’s never good to be embarrassed like that, especially at this level,” Fitzpatrick said after a 59-10 loss to Baltimore. “What we had talked about: nobody is going to feel sorry for you and your situation. That’s what happens. You go out there and if you don’t execute, you’re going to get beat bad like that.”

Fitzpatrick, making his Dolphins debut, was 14-for-29 for 185 with one touchdown, one interception and a passer rating of 66.0. Fitzpatrick gave way to Josh Rosen at the end of the third quarter.

“I thought he did well trying to move this offense,” Miami coach Brian Flores said of Fitzpatrick. “I thought he made some throws, got some explosive plays in the first half. We had a couple drops that could have been bigger plays. I thought he played – he had the turnover, which we don’t – it was a bad decision there.”
