FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Ryan Fitzpatrick will be the New York Jets' starting quarterback Sunday against the New England Patriots.

Coach Todd Bowles made the announcement after practice Monday, the players' first day back at the facility since last Tuesday following a bye-week break.

Fitzpatrick sat out the Jets' previous game against Los Angeles on Nov. 13 with a sprained left knee. Bryce Petty made his first regular-season NFL start and went 19 of 32 for 163 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the 9-6 loss.

Bowles said last week that he would consider which quarterback would give the Jets (3-7) the best chance of winning against the Patriots (8-2). The coach says the fact Fitzpatrick is healthy again contributed to his decision, adding that he's the starter "and we're going forward with that."
