Fitzpatrick says he's 'right guy' to turn Jets around

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick says he's ''the right guy'' to turn things around, despite his recent struggles.

Fitzpatrick threw three more interceptions Sunday in a 27-17 loss to Seattle, giving him an eye-popping nine INTs in his past two games.

The Jets are 1-3 and facing tough road games at Pittsburgh and Arizona the next two weeks.

While some fans and media are speculating about Fitzpatrick's job security, coach Todd Bowles says Monday that he is not considering a quarterback change right now.

Fitzpatrick has thrown 10 interceptions for the season, but Bowles says he still gives the Jets the best chance to win games. Former starter Geno Smith, Bryce Petty and rookie Christian Hackenberg are also on the roster.

Fitzpatrick takes ''full responsibility'' for the interceptions the past two games, and insists his confidence is not shaken.
