Nick Foles benched in favor of Gardner Minshew

Nick Foles, whom the Jaguars signed to a four-year, $88 million contract last March to deliver big plays as their franchise quarterback, could not avoid fumbling, stumbling or getting picked off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, John Reid of the Florida Times-Union reports.

It was enough for Coach Doug Marrone to pull the plug on Foles and reinsert Minshew as his starting quarterback after halftime.

By then, the Buccaneers had already taken control of the game on their way to a 28-11 victory after spotting themselves a 25-0 halftime lead.

It was the Jaguars’ (4-8) fourth straight loss with four games left in the regular season.

Minshew, however, still showcased his magic after Foles couldn’t do much of anything right.

Now, there’s a chance Minshew could start next week against the Los Angeles Clippers based on his performance Sunday.

Minshew led the Jaguars to two scoring drives, which included a 3-yard touchdown pass to Dede Westbrook that cut the Buccaneers’ lead to 25-11 early in the fourth quarter.
