18. Ryan Fitzpatrick exploding for 6 TDs against Tennessee in 2014.
During the quarterback shuffle that was 2014, one game in particular stood out for a member of the Texans quarterback room. On November 30th, the Texans hosted divisional rival Tennessee and the Titans got a glimpse of the Harvard grad, Ryan Fitzpatrick, at his absolute best.
Fitzy had 358 yards on 24 of 33 passing, but that wasn’t the most impressive part. What really stood out was the fact that the quarterback tossed six touchdowns and no interceptions as he completely picked the Titans apart in the 45-21 win.
This game alone makes it a real head scratcher that the Texans received only a seventh round pick from the New York Jets for his services.
He threw touchdown passes of eight yards (Ryan Griffin), seven yards (Arian Foster), 58 yards and 34 yards (DeAndre Hopkins) and four yards (Andre Johnson). Then he topped all those by throwing a one-yarder to defensive end J.J. Watt, who had lined up at tight end.
