Fitzpatrick Remains As Starter: Perry Fewell gave the players the day off following yesterday's win in Kansas City. He did address the media like he normally does on Mondays and he did confirm that Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain at quarterback for this week's game with the Patriots. Fewell talked about how great his defense played along with the game changing play made by punter Brian Moorman. Fewell is particularly impressed with the play of Bryan Scott and Jairus Byrd since both players are playing new positions for them. Byrd hasn't played safety since High School but knew he would play there when the Bills drafted him. Scott is playing linebacker for the first time in his career out of necessity and has played very well of late.
