Ryan Fitzpatrick had a horrendous week against the Kansas City Chiefs last weekend. The Jets quarterback threw six interceptions in the team’s 24-3 loss.
That performance likely had Richard Sherman and the rest of the Legion of Boom drooling while watching tape this week hoping they could be the beneficiaries of a couple more poorly thrown Fitzpatrick passes. That’s exactly what happened as Sherman picked off the Jets QB twice, including the game sealing interception with 55 seconds left in the fourth quarter.
The first interception came early in the fourth quarter with the Jets nearing midfield as Fitzpatrick tried to get the ball to wide receiver Brandon Marshall. Sherman had other ideas.
Then, later in the fourth quarter, with the Jets attempting a last minute drive to cut in to the Seahawks 27-17 lead, Fitzpatrick threw at Sherman again. Same result.
Sherman’s picks were part of the three interceptions that Fitzpatrick threw on the day, all of them coming in the fourth quarter.
