NFL Thursday Night Football: Dolphins Vs. JaguarsPublished September 24, 2020 by Sol FH
Week 3 of the NFL regular season kicks off tonight at 1:20 GMT with the Miami Dolphins hosting the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The 3rd week of the NFL 2020/21 regular season gets underway tonight and it is a battle between the Beard and the Moustache, as Ryan Fitzpatrick (Beard) will go head-to-head against Gardner Minshew (Moustache). Perhaps there should be a side-bet wherein the loser must shave...
The Miami Dolphins will host the Jacksonville Jaguars tonight to start of the weekend of football. The QB facial hair is not the most important story of the night, but the QBs have fired shots at each other, accordingly.
Miami's Fitzpatrick has a huge beard that engulfs his chin strap, while Jacksonville's Minshew has a hipster horseshoe mustache that he maintains quite lovingly.
"I think the beard is a cooler look," Fitzpatrick commented. "I think guys that grow mustaches a lot of times have patchy sides for their beards, so they just stick with the mustache."
In response to that comment, Minshew fired back saying, "I'll let mine speak for itself, I think I've shown I can grow a beard with no patchy sides. But you know, I'm going to have respect for my elders, especially when they're much, much elder. I'll be respectful." Fitzpatrick is 37 and Minshew is 24.
Lost Last Week
Both teams lost in their Week 2 games, but both QBs looked fine, and the outcome of both their games could've gone either way. Minshew threw three TD passes, for the third time in-a-row, but after two unfathomable interceptions his team lost 33-30 at Tennessee.
Fitzpatrick threw for 328 yards and two touchdowns against the Bills in the losing effort. The game ended 31-28, but Fitzpatrick had the Dolphins in the lead in the fourth quarter only to lose due to some heroics by Bills' QB Josh Allen. Miami's defense has struggled and is the main reason for their 0-2 start to the year.
The Jaguars are 1-1 after beating the Colts in Week 1 and hope that they will have a stronger game against the Dolphins, tonight.
The odds are quite competitive and close for both teams at bet365 Sports. The Jaguars have the edge at 1.64, while the Dolphins are just behind at 2.35, but with the home field advantage, punters should consider the underdog. Bet365 Sports will be providing live in-play odds throughout the action.
