Nick Foles benched for Gardner Minshew

Nick Foles benched for awful play

Gardner Minshew is back! Nick Foles has looked like hot garbage since returning from his clavicle injury and it came to the brink against the Buccaneers on Sunday. Foles threw an interception on his first drive that was inexplicable, as he tossed it right to Devin White with no Jaguars receivers near him.

On the jaguars next drive, Foles was strip sacked and the ball was recovered by White, which he then housed for a touchdown. Then, on their next drive, Foles was strip sacked again after a long drive ito the Buccaneers 25-yard line. Three possessions, three turnovers by Foles. He deserved the bench.
