With his day on Sunday, Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick continues to accumulate stats that will place him in team trivia questions and record books for years to come. After his 21 of 34, 316-yard, four-touchdwon performance in Cincinnati, here are some notable accomplishments for Fitzpatrick and his beard to this point in his Bills career:

  • A Buffalo Bills quarterback has had two four-touchdown games in one season five times. Jim Kelly did it three times. Joe Ferguson had one, and now Fitzpatrick has one. (Drew Bledsoe had two four-TD games in three seasons combined.)
  • Fitzpatrick is averaging 2.25 touchdown passes per game. At that pace, he will finish the 2010 season with 31 or 32 scoring passes, second-most in a single season for a Bills quarterback.
  • He has thrown a touchdown on 6.3% of his passing attempts, fifth-best in team history among quarterbacks.
  • His 245.1 passing yards per game would be the third-best average in Buffalo's 51 seasons.
  • If he continues to average 245.1 yards per game, he will top Rob Johnson for ninth place in Bills history in career passing yards. (He is already eighth in passing touchdowns, having surpassed Trent Edwards.)
  • He's only been sacked 14 times in eight games (4.7% sack rate), eighth-fewest among Bills QBs who have started at least eight games in one season.
  • Don't forget he threw the longest pass in team history last season - a 98-yard bomb to Terrell Owens.
