Thursday night football thread: Minshew Mania versus Fitzmagic

The Dolphins are on the road to face the Jaguars

NFL: Miami Dolphins at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins are on the road to face the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Dolphins got off to a fast start and scored on their opening drive as Ryan Fitzpatrick found Preston Williams in the end zone. Gardner Minshew has been one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the NFL through two weeks. That continued as Minshew found James Robinson for a 24-yard gain on Jacksonville’s first play of the game, but the drive stalled after Chris Conley dropped a pass when he was wide open on second down.

This game should feature plenty of points and should continue to be exciting as both defenses struggle to stop anybody. Former San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida has played for Miami, but in a limited role.

Miami uses Jordan Howard as their short-yardage back, and Myles Gaskin as their starter. Breida is in the “Tevin Coleman” role in the Dolphins offense.
