Fitzpatrick completed 22 of his 28 passes for 350 yards and three touchdowns. He also ran the ball three times for an additional 16 yards.
Following the win, Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki called Fitzpatrick the “greatest teammate” he’s ever had.
Dolphins' Gesicki on R. Fitzpatrick: "The greatest teammate I've played with… The energy he brings, confidence he gives to everyone else. It's contagious. What makes him special is he makes guys around him better players.If I could play with him the next 15 years I would do it"

It is no secret that Fitzpatrick is loved in the Dolphins’ locker room. The veteran has led Miami to a 2-3 record so far this season, but the team has looked much more competitive than it did in 2019.
Fitzpatrick and Gesicki have a solid connection going, as they hooked up five times for 91 yards on Sunday.
While rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is waiting in the wings, it doesn’t look like Fitzpatrick’s teammates are ready for Tagovailoa to displace the veteran any time soon.
