Bucs quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will try to make it two wins in a row against AFC East teams when he faces the Miami Dolphins Sunday.

Fitzpatrick says he didn't play as well as he can in a 15-10 win over the New York Jets last Sunday. But with receiver Mike Evans returning from a one-game suspension – and all the other talent on offense – he believes the Bucs (3-6) can begin to stack up a few wins.

"This league is kind of about getting on runs and unfortunately we went through a bad run for a little bit there,'' Fitzpatrick said after helping the Bucs snap a five-game losing streak. "But if we can just continue to stack up some of these wins, you never know what's going to happen. I know, I'm 100 percent positive, the belief in that locker room is that we can do it. We can continue to go out there and we're talented enough to win these games. It's not like we're going into these games and we don't have a shot at it. We've got some really good players here. It's just a matter of me distributing the ball and getting them going and I think that confidence can turn into more wins.''

What gives Fitzpatrick confidence he can help the Bucs out of the hole they have dug for themselves? For starters, he expects to be better after shaking off the rustiness against the Jets last week.
