Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has one start under his belt this season and he was slow out of the gate.

Fitzpatrick expects to be sharper from the get-go on Sunday in Seattle when he’ll step in again for an injured Jake Locker.

“Obviously I had a tough start’’ said Fitzpatrick who went 5-of-14 for 31 yards in the first half against the Chiefs. “But I got more comfortable as the game went on.

“But the more we work together the better we’ll get. There’s definitely a better comfort level this week than there last week just because I have been through it now for a week.”

Fitzpatrick finished 21-of-41 for 247 yards and a touchdown against Kansas City. This week he’s preparing to face the NFL’s sixth-ranked defense.
