Not the best day of Ryan Fitzpatrick’s career. He threw a career-high six interceptions on Sunday, after a dominating performance against the Buffalo Bills in the previous game.

It had Fitzpatrick searching for answers.

“It’s tough,” Fitzpatrick said. “The NFL in general is a humbling game.”

The Jets committed eight turnovers, the most by the team since 1975. Twice Fitzpatrick was intercepted in the end zone, and one of his picks was returned for a touchdown.

“When I don’t play well … then we’re going to have a hard time winning football games,” Fitzpatrick said. “That’s the nature of the NFL and the nature of being a quarterback.

“The Chiefs are a very opportunistic defense and we went in knowing that.”
