Veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick had a game for the record books Thursday night.

He led the Miami Dolphins to a 31-13 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars -- his sixth win over the Jaguars while playing for six different opponents. That's a first, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

The definition of a journeyman quarterback, Fitzpatrick was the seventh-round pick of the then-St. Louis Rams in the 2005 NFL Draft. He spent two seasons with the Rams before playing in Cincinnati (2007-08), Buffalo (2009-12), Tennessee (2013), Houston (2014), New York Jets (2015-16), Tampa Bay (2017-18) and Miami.

He is 6-3 as a starter against the Jaguars, beating them while wearing the uniforms of the Bengals (2008), Bills (2012), Titans (2013), Texans (2014), Jets (2015) and Dolphins.

Fitzpatrick, 37, also set a record on Dec. 1, 2019, when he became the first player in NFL history to throw a touchdown pass against the same opponent for seven franchises. The Dolphins beat the Philadelphia Eagles 37-31.

In his career, Fitzpatrick is 56-85-1 as a starter.
