Minshew Mania is back
If you thought that Gardner Minshew was a one year wonder, think again. Although the Jaguars lost to the Titans they have now played competitive football in both games this year. Despite two costly interceptions, Minshew passed for 339 yards and three touchdowns. What makes this team really impressive is that one of the youngest rosters in the NFL and they are disciplined. 1-1 may not please many fan bases, but it’s better than 0-2, as their opponent in this game.
Before the season began, many believed this could be the year for the Miami Dolphins. It may be early, but only 10 percent of the teams that start the year 0-2 make the playoffs. To make matters worse the Dolphins lost to two divisional teams. The Dolphins defense made multiple acquisitions in the offseason, but it has yet to be paid off. CB Byron Jones pulled his groin against Buffalo and is he does play Thursday, it will be limited.
What to watch
The Jaguars will be happy to be home for Thursday night, which has provided a significant edge in the past. Minshew will have all day to throw against a Dolphin pass rush that is nonexistent up to this point. In the last game, the Dolphins pressured the quarterback on just 15.4 percent of his dropbacks. First-round draft pick Noah Igbinoghene was torched and will get more targets when Minshew airs it out.
Dolphins vs Jaguars pick against the spread
The Dolphins have the offense to keep up with the Jags in this game. But playing on the road on Thursday night is not an easy task. The Dolphins are 0-4 (ATS) against the spread in the last four games on Thursday night which is a sign that the coaching staff may have too many challenges in a short week. To make matters worse the Dolphins are 7-15 ATS in road games and the Jaguars are 5-0 ATS in the last five games in September.
