On Friday night Jacksonville Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles played in his third NFL game, and for the third straight time he looked nothing like a rookie. Facing the Detroit Lions at Ford Field, Bortles was once again the most impressive player under center for the Jags. For the game Bortles finished with 158 passing yards, a touchdown, and a passer rating of 109.4.
Even though Chad Henne has already been named the Jags’ Week 1 starter, it’s clear that the excitement around Bortles was not all hype.
You know that you’ve really arrived when people start making memes out of you. In this awesome photo one fan gave Bortles the Mortal Kombat treatment. Check it out:
Fantastic. Welcome to the NFL, rookie.
