The roller coaster that was Gardner Minshew’s rookie NFL season is finally over, and it ended with a bang. Minshew tossed three touchdowns on Sunday to lead the Jaguars to a Week 17 win. The three touchdowns tied his career high and his 295 passing yards were the second-best single game total this year.

This was his final TD of 2019:

For the year, Minshew started 12 games — winning 6 — while throwing for 3,271 yards, 21 touchdowns and six interceptions. He completed 60.6 percent of his passes and averaged 7.0 yards per attempt.

All in all it was a terrific rookie season for Minshew. He proved he can play at the NFL level and regardless of what happens with the Jaguars quarterback situation next year, Minshew will get another shot in the NFL.

Minshew Mania will be back in 2020.
