This week's Thursday Night Football matchup doesn't merely pit the Jacksonville Jaguars against the Miami Dolphins.

It's Gardner Minshew versus Ryan Fitzpatrick. Minshew Mania versus Fitzmagic. The mustache versus the beard.

The epic showdown of facial hair isn't lost on the opposing quarterbacks either, Adam Maya of reports.

"I think the beard is cooler," Fitzpatrick quipped to reporters Tuesday. "Guys that grow mustaches have patchy sides."

The 24-year-old Minshew, 13 years Fitzpatrick's junior, wasn't fazed by the fellow Florida man.

"I think I've shown I can grow a beard with no patchy sides," the Jags starter responded. "You know, I have a lot of respect for my elders ... especially when they're much older."
