Los Angeles Chargers at Jacksonville Jaguars NFL Week 14 Pick & Preview

Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians said Monday that running back Ronald Jones II was benched in the third quarter against the Jacksonville Jaguars for missing an assignment on a blitz pickup that resulted in a sack-forced fumble of quarterback Jameis Winston.

When Minshew replaced Foles to start the second half, he did a bit better. Foles played a bad first half, turning the ball over on the team's first three drives (an interception and two fumbles) and then leading the offense to three consecutive three-and-outs.

In addition to scoring on a 14-yard fumble return, White also had his first career interception, two passes defensed, a quarterback hit and seven tackles. He also added that he still believes in Foles and that his struggles exclusively weren't his fault because the Jags weren't playing well around him either.

"It's brutal. It's tough", Marrone said. I think he's a really good quarterback.

The Jaguars had signed Foles to a four-year, $88 million contract ($50 million guaranteed) during free agency, and Philadelphia Eagles get weepy when Foles is mentioned after leading the Eagles to their first-ever Super Bowl win in 2017 and to another playoff win in 2018.

LeSean McCoy and Darwin Thompson also found the endzone in the second half as the Chiefs improved to 8-4. Emmanuel Sanders was the top receiver for San Francisco with four catches for 41 yards.


Washington's sixth-round pick, Minshew started eight games while Foles recovered from a left collarbone fracture and gave Jaguars (4-8) a chance nearly every week. "Coach Marrone came in and told me and Nick [Foles] the situation", Minshew said. Now he's got the job back, but that doesn't mean Foles is exclusively to blame for the offense's problems.

Minshew stepped in for Foles and had an impressive debut: 22 of 25 for 275 yards and two TDs with one interception.

The charismatic sixth-round draft choice started eight games earlier this year after Foles broke his clavicle.

"One thing I didn't appreciate is all the booing today", Minshew said.

That was apparently enough to take the job from Foles.
