On Thursday night, fans will see the Miami Dolphins face off against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Before the game kicks off, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick had some trash talk for Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew. The duo has some of the best facial hair in the game, but Fitzpatrick questioned Minshew's mustache.
