FitzMagic Casting Spell on National and Local Media

Behind another magical performance by quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, media outlets from across the country are taking notice of the Buccaneers in Week Two.

For the second week in a row, all eyes were on quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick as he put up another stellar performance worthy of a Las Vegas special. Fitzpatrick threw for over 400 yards and four touchdowns, marking his second consecutive game with that stat line. Both national media and local media have taken notice as they've gotten swept up in FitzMagic.

Not to be overlooked is the incredible game wide receiver DeSean Jackson had against his former team. Jackson has historically done well against the Eagles in his career and Sunday was no exception, when he had a record day himself. Below is a compiling of some of the snippets of media attention the Buccaneers are getting, along with a sort of 'I told you so' moment where I think I might be psychic.

This is a legit squad and teams should be scared of this offense. Nate Burleson, Good Morning Football
By the middle of the third quarter against the reigning Super Bowl champions, Fitzpatrick became the first Bucs quarterback ever to toss four touchdowns in consecutive games. This aerial attack is absolutely loaded with complementary talent, and Fitzpatrick is giving them all a chance to make big plays. Chris Wesseling,

"The inexplicable phenomenon​ now​ widely​ known​ as​ Fitzmagic started on​ the very first play of​ Sunday's game against the defending​​ Super Bowl champion Eagles when fill-in quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick connected with former Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson for a 75-yard touchdown." -Greg Auman, The Athletic

And now for some magic of my own. I was apparently typing into a crystal ball instead of Twitter on this one...
