Dolphins OC Chad O’Shea praised veteran QB Ryan Fitzpatrick‘s leadership and ability to persevere through “tough times.”
“The biggest thing about ‘Fitz’ is I think he really handled himself through some tough times there during the game like a real professional,” O’Shea said, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. “He’s got great mental toughness, great leadership, didn’t waver any in tough times, and that’s one of his traits that’s very awesome.”
