Jacksonville Jaguars star Leonard Fournette had a career game Sunday in a win over the Denver Broncos, which was then capped off by a gutsy performance from rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew.

Fournette, who had 29 carries for 225 rushing yards, was seemingly impressed with the way Minshew performed in a close game against the Broncos, which ended with a Josh Lambo game-winning field goal to give the Jaguars the 26-24 victory.

Minshew finished 19-for-33 with 213 passing yards and two touchdowns.
