It’s the battle for Floridian supremacy in the NFL’s Thursday Night Football game this week as the Miami Dolphins face off against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Neither team has gotten off to a tremendous start and each team is expected to have a similar record by the time the season ends.
This is just one reason why this should be an entertaining matchup. Another reason of course is the battle of the facial hair between opposing quarterbacks, Ryan Fitzpatrick of Miami and Gardner Minshew of Jacksonville who have already exchanged some good-natured barbs at one another on social media poking fun at one another’s facial hair as well as age. When it comes down to it though, follicles will be secondary to the game being played on the field.
The Miami Dolphins come into this game 0-2 for the season, desperately needing a win after losing to the New England Patriots in week 1 and the Buffalo Bills in week 2. In those two weeks, Miami’s quarterback, Ryan Fitzpatrick – an elder statesman among NFL quarterbacks has completed just over 60% of his passes for 519 yards and two touchdowns with three interceptions.
The Jacksonville Jaguars on the other hand have started the season with a 1-1 record after defeating the Indianapolis Colts in week 1 and just missing against the Tennessee Titans in week 2. Minshew has completed 75.4% of his passes thus far this season for 512 yards with 6 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.
Despite the differences in stats so far, Ryan Fitzpatrick has proven he can come through with a big game when it counts and we liked the way they played the Buffalo Bills on Sunday despite the loss. We’re looking for the Miami Dolphins to post a mild upset over the Jaguars to get their first win of the season.
