Tonight’s Thursday night soccer game between your Miami Dolphins and the Jacksonville Jaguars will be our one and only prime time game this season, so let’s hope the Dolphins decide to make it a good game. for us fans The in-state match drew more attention to the facial hair of both starting quarterbacks than anything else this week, it seems yes, our own Fitzpatrick has a gorgeous beard in every way, there’s no denying This What I’m not sure about is why Gardner Minshew gets so much publicity about his facial hair which, at least here in Texas, seems as common as the sticker of a Dallas Cowboy on the back of a van (just a little peek inside the nightmare that is being a Dolphins / Hurricanes fan living in Texas)
Speaking of Gardner Minshew, he’s spent the first two games of the season making a strong case for being the long-term answer to the Jaguars quarterback Minshew has already thrown six touchdowns this year (3 in each of the first two games) set to upset the Indianapolis Colts in the Jags’ first week contest and nearly upset the Tennessee Titans last Sunday He returned from the game against the Colts with a stellar 142 QB after finishing 19 of his 20 passing attempts Sunday, he tried his best Brett Favre impersonation by throwing the ball 45 times for 339 yards (his career high) Minshew also has a knack for getting out of trouble We’ve seen some of the best scrambling quarterbacks in this league give adjustments to the Dolphins’ defense over the years Hope tonight isn’t another one of those games
Despite the loss to Phins last Sunday, in a game the Dolphins could clearly have won had the high school not looked completely lost in the second half after losing Byron Jones in the first half, Fitzpatrick had a decent game. He finished the game with 328 passing yards and two touchdowns without a pitch pick This comes after his three-pick game against the Patriots, although two of those three picks aren’t just on Fitz Fitzpatrick will need another solid exit, it looks like they’re keen to take down the Jags after Jacksonville’s defense managed to keep defending NFL champion Derrick Henry 84 yards on 25 attempts on Sunday Even so, I expect to see the Dolphins continue to try and improve on the pitch tonight after the first two games reminded too many of us fans of last season when the best runner of the year was Fitzpatrick with all 243 yards
In addition to the Dolphins needing Fitzpatrick to have a good big game tonight, the high school will have to sort out the glaring issues from last Sunday before tonight’s kick-off The Phins will be without Byron Jones again for tonight’s game which will only bring out even more of the issues they faced last week this week given how Minshew has played so far. Miami can’t afford another performance like in the Bills game where Stefon Diggs racked up 153 yards while receiving just 8 receptions as part of quarterback Josh Allen’s 415 passing yards and 4 touchdown days. On the other side of the ball, the Dolphins will hopefully continue to see the success Mike Gesicki had last week with his career record 130 yards on 8 receptions, including a touchdown. Another bright spot for the Phins offense is that DeVante Parker will start after his availability was questionable earlier in the week.
