For his efforts in leading the Buffalo Bills to a surprising 3-0 start, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for the month of September.

Through three games, Buffalo's offense has produced 106 points. Fitzpatrick has ranged from very good to sensational, completing 64.9 percent of his passes for 841 yards - at a career-high 7.6 yards per attempt - with nine touchdowns, three interceptions and a quarterback rating of 103.5. He is currently the NFL's sixth highest-rated passer.

Fitzpatrick began the season with a four-touchdown performance against Kansas City, then followed it up with three touchdowns in Buffalo's thrilling 38-35, come-from-behind victory over Oakland. He was again stellar in erasing a 21-0 lead against New England, throwing for 369 yards and two more scores after giving up two early interceptions.

Per the team's official press release, Fitzpatrick becomes just the third Bills player to win this award in team history. He joins Jim Kelly, who did it three times, and Drew Bledsoe, who did it in September of 2002.
