First and 10: A star is born … in Buffalo?

Okay, so Ryan Fitzpatrick hasn’t thrown for a gazillion yards in his first two games like Tom Brady has, but he is tied with Brady and Matthew Stafford for the NFL lead with seven TD passes. Three of those came in Buffalo’s wild 38-35 win over Oakland on Sunday. In case you missed that thriller — or just need to see it again — you can relive all the action on “NFL Replay” Wednesday night at 8 p.m. ET on NFL Network. Not that you’ll need an appetizer for that football feast, but you can also hear from Fitzpatrick himself on “NFL Total Access” at 7 p.m. ET. No doubt, he’ll have lots to say about that Raiders-Bills game — not to mention his Sunday showdown with Brady and the Patriots.

Here’s what else is on tap for Wednesday:

  • As the St. Louis Rams prepare to file a complaint with the league office about the Giants’ alleged stalling tactics in Monday night’s game,’s Marc Sessler explains that faking injuries is nothing new in the NFL.
  • Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon refuted pre-draft critics who said Cam Newton didn’t have the chops to succeed in the NFL. Look who’s laughing now.
  • Willie McGinest, Mike Mayock and Michael Lombardi share their favorite memories of Patriots coach Bill Belichick when Part 2 of “A Football Life” debuts Thursday night at 10 ET on NFL Network.
