Jaguars bench Nick Foles after three turnovers in first half

The Jacksonville Jaguars lost patience with struggling quarterback Nick Foles as he was benched against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Nick Foles was benched by the Jacksonville Jaguars at halftime against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after an awful display from the former Super Bowl MVP.

Foles, who led the Philadelphia Eagles to the title two season ago and was a big free-agent acquisition this offseason, was starting his fourth game for the Jaguars on Sunday, having lost the previous three.

And Week 13 was going the same way, as Foles was hooked with Jacksonville 25-0 down through two quarters.

Foles had three turnovers, including two fumbles, and was sacked three times, completing just seven of 14 passes for 93 yards.

Rookie Gardner Minshew was recalled to the fold, having started under center for each of the Jaguars' four wins this year after replacing Foles following a clavicle injury suffered in Week 1.
