Week 3: vs Tennessee Titans

All QB vs TEN

FBG says: Tough matchup. Gardner Minshew held his own through his second NFL game, completing 70 percent of his passes for 213 yards and a touchdown. He played very poorly through the first half of last week's game, but he improved during the second half to bring the Jaguars within a few feet of a victory. He still has plenty of room for improvement, though, as Minshew held on to the ball far too long while making a few terrible throws that could have otherwise been big plays. D.J. Chark was his favorite target this week and hauled in the only touchdown of the game for Jacksonville. Chark has started hot this season with 11 receptions for 201 yards and two touchdowns, but he was listed on the injury report with an ankle issue. While he is tentatively expected to play on Thursday, keep an eye on his status leading into game time. Both Chris Conley was also on that injury report and could be at risk of sitting Thursday, but as of now, he is expected to play. Conley has had a solid start with Minshew under center with 12 target netting out to 10 receptions for 170 yards and a touchdown. Dede Westbrook, on the other hand, hasn't had a great connection with Minshew to start. He managed to catch just one-of-five targets for three yards last week--this coming after amassing just 30 yards with a touchdown in Week 1. Leonard Fournette has seen a consistent workload through the air though, seeing six targets in each game while hauling in a total of eight receptions for 68 yards to start this season. The Titans defense had another strong showing against the Colts last week as this secondary continues to impress with their playmaking abilities. The Titans have allowed the second-fewest passing yards per game (182.5) and have forced a league-leading (tied) five turnovers, four of which are interceptions. Logan Ryan has two of those interceptions while also ranking tied for fourth in the league with four passes defended and notching 1.5 sacks to bolster his early-season resume. He has looked like the best cornerback for the Titans and will give slot receiver Dede Westbrook a hard time this week. The other Jaguars wide receivers will also be in for challenges against this Titans secondary, particularly given the strong support coming from these safeties. The Titans pass rush has also been above average with strong showings from the veteran defensive end Cameron Wake and linebacker Jayon Brown. The Jaguars offensive line will have its work cut out for them to defend Gardner Minshew while trying to find open receivers against what should be tight coverage from the Titans secondary.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 1 vs KC (5 / 8 / 75 / 1 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Nick Foles only played two possessions (11 snaps) before suffering a fractured left clavicle when Chiefs defensive tackle landed on him hard. Before exiting the game, Foles was 5/8 passing for 75 yards and a touchdown. His first few throws were forgettable checkdowns, but his second drive featured a nice play when he shrugged off a Chris Jones sack and converted a 3rd and 18 with an accurate pass over the middle to Chris Conley. He capped the drive off with a beautiful 35-yard touchdown in the corner of the end zone to Chark, but that would be the same play that would end up sidelining him for the foreseeable future.

Jaguars | Nick Foles headed for IR (Mon Sep 9, 12:05 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars QB Nick Foles (shoulder) underwent surgery on his broken clavicle Monday, Sept. 9, and will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a designation to return later in the day, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Our View: Just bad news for the Jaguars as they lost Foles early in their opener against the Chiefs. They'll turn to rookie Gardner Mishew as their starter while Foles is out for half the season. Minshew did not look uncomfortable when he was thrust into the game against the Chiefs on Sunday. He's smart and capable of working passes at all three levels.

Jaguars | Broken clavicle for Nick Foles (Sun Sep 8, 03:57 PM) - Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars QB Nick Foles (clavicle) suffered a broken left clavicle during the Week 1 game.

Our View: It's his non-throwing shoulder but Foles is going to miss some time. Rookie Gardner Minshew came in and played well for the Jaguars but they didn't have enough firepower to beat the Chiefs. We'll see Foles miss perhaps as much as half the regular season as the usual timetable for this sort of injury is 6-8 weeks. Expect Jacksonville to try and find a veteran backup but Minshew will start the next game.

Jaguars | Nick Foles injures shoulder (Sun Sep 8, 01:35 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars QB Nick Foles (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury during the Week 1 game and has been ruled out.

Our View: This is the left (non-throwing) shoulder for Foles. He has been replaced by 2019 sixth-round pick Gardner Minshew.
