Another week, another 300-yard game for Minshew

For the second-straight week, Gardner Minshew threw for more than 300 yards. And unfortunately for Minshew, it once again didn’t help the Jaguars win a game.

Minshew completed 31-of-49 yards for 301 yards, a pair of touchdowns and no interceptions. His only real mistake was a lost fumble. The Jaguars managed to lose a pair of fumbles and miss a pair of field goals on the way to a 30-14 loss.

Minshew’s Cougar and now Jaguar teammate Daniel Ekuale was inactive for the game.

Here is how the rest of the Cougs in the NFL fared in Week 5.

Daniel Ekuale - Ekuale was on the active roster for the second straight week in Jacksonville, but was once again inactive on gameday.

Hercules Mata’afa - Mata’afa was inactive for the Vikings’ game in Seattle. They could have used him on Seattle’s final 94-yard drive as Russell Wilson moved the Seahawks down the field without getting sacked.

Dezmon Patmon - Patmon was inactive once again and is still waiting to play in his first NFL game.

Frankie Luvu - Luvu continue his role as a backup defender for the Jets, posting one tackle in the loss to Arizona. It was a tackle for loss on Kenyan Drake.

Jalen Thompson - Although he was eligible to return from injury, Jalen Thompson remained on Injured Reserve. It sounds like he could return as soon as next week.

Joe Dahl - Dahl is eligible to return from injured reserve, but got another week to recover thanks to the Lions’ bye week.

Andre Dillard - Dillard remains out for the 2020 season due to injury.
