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.
The LSU product game Minshew a new nickname after the win.
“His name is Jock Strap King,” Fournette said, according to ESPN. “He's stronger than you think. I don't know if the mustache gives him power or what.”

Part of Minshew’s lore was the story of how he stretched in the locker room with just a jock strap on, which apparently is now a part of his professional ritual as well.
Minshew finished 19-for-33 with 213 passing yards and two touchdowns.
With the win, the Jaguars improved to 2-2 on the season. The Broncos fell to 0-4.
