Another week of NFL games, another round of Minshew mania. Gardner Minshew couldn’t quite lead the Jaguars to a 2-0 start, but it wasn’t the result of his performance. Minshew finished the game 30-of-45 for 339 yards and three touchdowns.
I know the bar for Jaguars quarterback play isn’t exactly high, but Minshew continues to set records.

Even beyond the Jags, Minshew’s play has put him in some great company through two weeks.

Gardner Minshew forever.
Let’s check in on the other Cougs in the NFL this week:
Dezmon Patmon - For the second straight week, Patmon was a healthy scratch for the Colts. Indianapolis did have an injury at wide receiver, so that could open the door for Dez next week.
Joe Dahl - Dahl injured his groin in practice on Thursday and was placed on Injured Reserve. Due to new rules, Dahl will miss at least three games, including sitting out Sunday in Green Bay.
Frankie Luvu - Luvu finished with one tackle on special teams in the loss to San Francisco.
Hercules Mata’afa -Mata’afa was active for the Vikings, but did not play any snaps according to the box score.
Jalen Thompson - Thompson also landed on Injured Reserve, due to an ankle injury, and will miss at least two more weeks.
