Not that they’re complaining about his backup. Ryan Fitzpatrick turned in another solid performance in his third straight start Sunday Clelin Ferrell Jersey , nearly rallying the Bucs from a 21-point deficit. But a fourth-down pass was batted down near the goal line midway through the fourth quarter, and the Atlanta Falcons held on for a 34-20 victory that snapped Tampa Bay’s two-game winning streak with Fitzpatrick at the helm. ”Ryan did fine,” coach Dirk Koetter said. ”He hung in there and again he didn’t turn the ball over and when you don’t turn the ball over in the NFL, you are going to have a chance, which we did.” After the Bucs (4-7) fell behind 27-6 early in the third quarter, Fitzpatrick led them back. He completed four passes for 62 yards, setting up a short touchdown run by Peyton Barber. After the Bucs got the ball back, he connected on five throws for 67 yards, in addition to scrambling for an 11-yard gain, before Barber punched it over again from the 1 to bring Tampa Bay within 27-20. The Bucs then came up with a huge turnover, stripping the ball away from Terron Ward deep in their own territory. Brent Grimes scooped it up at his own 5 and returned it all the way out to the Tampa Bay 42. Fitzpatrick got the offense cranked up again, working around a sack to push Tampa Bay to second-and-2 at the Atlanta 19. A shot at the end zone fell incomplete and a short throw to Adam Humphries picked up only a yard. Facing fourth-and-1, the Bucs passed on a field goal and took another shot at the tying touchdown. With 346-pouind Dontari Poe bearing down on him, Fitzpatrick delivered a hurried throw over the middle intended for tight end Cameron Brate. It was batted down inside the 5 by Falcons safety Keanu Neal. ”With the two-game win streak we had coming in e given them a better play,” the coach said. ”You have three or four plays on your sheet for that situation, and I picked the wrong one.” Fitzpatrick disagreed. ”I thought it was a really good play call,” he said. ”I wish I would have been able to execute better. That’s a play as a quarterback you love to hear. Coach has some confidence in you to go out there and do it. We just didn’t get it done.” Fitzpatrick, who celebrated his 35th birthday on Friday, finished 27 of 44 for 283 yards. In three games as the starter , he has completed 66 of 115 (57 percent) for 74 d when the Bucs play their third straight road game next Sunday at Green Bay. ”We are all professionals,” he said. ”I appreciate and respect the guys that I’m out there with in the huddle. It’s never fun to lose, but the fight that those guys show every week, I will always appreciate and respect that.” — DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Lions tried to make it work without experienced weapons around quarterback Matthew Stafford on Sunday.Once again, the offense couldn’t do enough as the home team lost 30-16 to the Los Angeles Rams, the Lions’ fifth loss in six games.Without three of its top skill position players from the beginning of the season, coach Matt Patricia’s staff was scrambling to move the ball against the Rams. Offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter dialed up a touchdown pass to an offensive tackle, used a reserve lineman as a fullback, and attempted a wide receiver pass by Bruce Ellington. Detroit also attempted two onside kicks, but recovered neither.“Everybody understood that we were trying to do everything we could to keep it tight,” Patricia said. “There were some things we’re trying to do, by design, to give us a little bit of an advantage in the game.”Howe n, and running back Kerryon Johnson (knee) missed his second straight game.The Lions (4-8) scored 16 points for the second straight week. Detroit has scored 22 points or fewer in each of the last six games, losing five.“We have some new guys in some new places obviously,” Stafford said. “We’re trying to develop some of those (bread-and-butter plays), to tell you the truth. It’s the constant battle in the NFL, really for every team. You have to figure out what’s working in that game against a certain opponent.”Even when the Lions caught breaks against the Rams, they couldn’t capitalize.After Quandre Diggs made an interception early in the second quarter, the Lions went three-and-out, gaining 2 yards.In the third quarter, after a horse-collar penalty on Ndamukong Suh gave them first-and-goal from the 4-ya ns trailing 16-13 in the fourth quarter, forcing a punt.Detroit went 1 for 5 in the red zone, while the defense kept it close for three quarters against the high-powered Rams.“We just have to do a better job of making the play when it’s there,” Stafford said.Cooter inserted reserve lineman Joe Dahl as a fullback on three plays, and also called a pass to tackle Taylor Decker that went for an 11-yard touchdown.“I thought it was a great add (to the playbook), the situation was perfect,” Stafford said. “I think our crowd got really loud when he was telling everybody that 68 reported eligible, which I thought was great.”Decker said the play was added late in the week and his heart rate went up when it was called.“I walked into breakfast one morning, heard that they were going to have a little wrinkle for me, and I lit as targeted twice in the first half, and the Lions were led in receptions by seven from Ellington, a midseason pickup. Tight end Levine Toilolo’s four tied the career high for the six-year pro.“We’ve got to find a way to win, that’s the biggest thing,” Patricia said. “We’re in the game, we just have to keep grinding it out and in the end we’ve got to try to figure out how to get that scoreboard to reflect in the end that we’re winning.”
