Jaguars revel in Gardner Minshew’s mustache, big night vs. Titans

Thursday, September 19th, 2019

Minshew impresses with precision passes By the end of the night, he had posted a tidy 20-for-30 stat line for 204 yards and two touchdowns that didn't do justice to some of the precision downfield pass he completed in tight spaces to covered receivers. He opened the scoring with a perfect floater to James O'Shaughnessy on a play-action pass that found the tight end wide open in the end zone. But he really turned heads on Jacksonville's second drive with a 28-yard dart to a streaking Dede Westbrook that just cleared the outstretched hands of Titans cornerback Malcolm Butler, who had Westbrook pinned against the right sideline.

Minshew commanded Thursday's game and led the Jaguars to their first victory of the NFL season following a 0-2 start.

Tannehill time? Titans have some Marcus Mariota questions after bad loss to Jaguars

Thursday, September 19th, 2019

Once upon a time, Marcus Mariota was a promising quarterback. Over an eight-game stretch in Mariota's second season with the Tennessee Titans, the former No. 2 overall pick of the draft had 2,073 yards, 21 touchdowns and three interceptions for a 117.7 passer rating. The player we saw on “Thursday Night Football,” being outplayed by rookie sixth-round pick Gardner Minshew in a 20-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, looked nothing like the Heisman Trophy winner with the Ducks or the promising second-year quarterback.
