What the heck is going on with Ryan Fitzpatrick?

The honeymoon is not over. Not even close.

Week 2 picked up where Week 1 left off: Ryan Fitzpatrick showing off the Fitzmagic in stunning fashion.

The Bucs jumped to a 20-7 halftime lead over the reigning Super Bowl champion Eagles on Sunday, with the former Jets quarterback throwing through and over their vaunted defense and putting up nearly 300 yards in the half.

The 35-year-old Fitzpatrick was 14-of-19 for 271 yards, three touchdowns and an interception (off a dropped pass) in the first 30 minutes, including a pair of home runs to DeSean Jackson and O.J. Howard.

The Jackson bomb went for 75 yards, Fitzpatrick airing it out and the speedy former Eagle racing underneath.

Howard did most of the work for his touchdown, catching a ball over the middle and gliding 75 yards, too, for his score.

With Jameis Winston suspended, Tampa has a quarterback controversy.
