Fitzpatrick acknowledged he’s made some poor decisions in attempting to force passes into coverage. What’s not an issue is his contract placing more pressure on him.

It’s no help that the Bills‘ offense is a shell of the one that opened the season. It’s missing its top threat, running back Fred Jackson; lost its most effective lineman, center Eric Wood; and Fitzpatrick is working with a patchwork group of receivers.

Roscoe Parrish and Donald Jones are on IR. Top threat, Stevie Johnson is nursing a shoulder and groin injuries. And tight end Scott Chandler, who is tied for the team lead with six touchdowns, missed last week’s game with a sore left ankle.

“Unfortunately, the last six games, we’ve had a lot more questions than answers,” Fitzpatrick said. “It’s something we’re going to continue to try to figure out and continue to try to work through.”
