Fitzpatrick named AFC offensive player of the month

---Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has been named the AFC offensive player of the month for September. Fitzpatrick led Bills to a 3-0 start and to consecutive come-from-behind victories in each of the last two weeks.  Buffalo is the first team in NFL history to win consecutive games in which it trailed by at least 18 points.

Fitzpatrick ranks second in the AFC in touchdown passes with nine and a passer rating of 103.5.  He has completed 72 of 111 passes for 841 yards with three interceptions.  He has led an offense which is tied for the conference lead with 11 red zone TDs.  Buffalo’s 78.6 red zone TD percentage ranks second in the AFC.

The Harvard graduate becomes the first Bill to receive the honor since Drew Bledsoe in Sept. 2002.
