Ryan Fitzpatrick Finds his Mojo and Steals Cam Newton's Move

When the Tennessee Titans signed Ryan Fitzpatrick to back up Jake Locker it seemed like a good idea; a veteran quarterback is almost always better than an untested rookie. Fitzpatrick has been good in the past so maybe the Titans will get that version of him over the next few weeks with Jake Locker on the mend.

And in a way he did not disappoint

On the day he almost accounted for 300 yards of offense. Through the air he was 21-41 for 247 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. What was more impressive was his work on the ground-- six carries for 50 yards and one touchdown (a team high for the day).

Yes, you could say that got his mojo back. After losing his job in Buffalo it had to the suffering, and there is nothing like getting back in the saddle to get it back. It must have worked since after running for a score he broke out the Superman move that Panthers QB Cam Newton is known for (see above).\

If only the Titans could have won, but instead it was all in a losing effort. After Tennessee took a 17-13 lead early in the fourth off of Eitzpatrick's rushing TD the Chiefs scored 13 unanswered points to seal the win 26-17.

At least Fitzpatrick will have something to build off of, and I don't think Cam Newton will mind that he stole his move either. With the looks of the Cardinals/Panthers game he is not going to need it.
