Minshew Mania 2.0: Jags stun Colts, Rivers 27-20 in opener
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Minshew Mania is back and maybe better than before. Gardner Minshew threw three touchdown passes, including a 22-yarder to Keelan Cole in the fourth quarter, and Jacksonville stunned Indianapolis 27-20 in their season opener and spoiled Philip Rivers' debut with the Colts.
The Jaguars entered Week 1 as the NFL’s biggest home underdogs.
Talk of tanking was most prevalent preseason topic surrounding the revamped team.
Minshew ended that for now.
The second-year pro completed 19 of 20 passes for 173 yards and no turnovers.
He connected with DJ Chark, rookie Laviska Shenault and Cole for scores. Rivers threw two interceptions.
