TAMPA — Ryan Fitzpatrick became the first quarterback in NFL history to open the season with two games of 400-plus yards passing and four touchdown passes.

And that's not the half of it. The Bucs are 2-0 having beaten Drew Brees in the Superdome and the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles, 27-21 Sunday in Tampa Bay's home opener.

There's been FitzMagic in Buffalo, New York, Houston, Cincinnati and even Tennessee as Fitzpatrick has pulled off amazing feats in his previous NFL starts. But nothing like this.
