Bold call helps Jaguars get first win, more takeaways from Week 6
Trevor Lawrence played a key role in the Jaguars’ win in Week 6.
Quarterback Trevor Lawrence was far from perfect, losing a fumble after being sacked by Dolphins defensive tackle Christian Wilkins. However, he made more big plays than mistakes and did a good job of spreading the ball in Week 6. The former Clemson Tiger completed passes to seven different players and didn’t throw a single interception.
Although it may be too early to peg Lawrence as the Jaguars’ quarterback of the future, it looks like they won’t have to worry about the position for the foreseeable future. His calm demeanor off the field complements his passion on it. After the game, he told the local media this winning this game was especially when you take into account the adversity the team has gone through.
Lawrence acknowledged this is just the beginning but believes the Jaguars are headed in the right direction.
"There’s still so much more work to do. But it feels good to get a win. I wasn’t a part of the other 15 [losses], but I was a part of the first five here. We hate losing, it’s been tough. We’ve had some games that could have gone our way and didn’t. So to get away and especially in that fashion, a game-winning field goal. It’s just crazy, so it feels good. I just tell everybody to stick in there with us you know we’re gonna be fine."
Lawrence is right. He and his teammates must celebrate this win, and enjoy the early results of all their hard work. On the other hand, once they get back home and rest, they will need to get back to the practice field and the classroom to keep working. Don’t forget this is just the beginning, not the end of the process and there are still eleven games left in the season.
Next on the Jaguars schedule are the Seattle Seahawks, who are coming off a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. On the bright side, Jacksonville will have two weeks (their BYE is in Week 7) to prepare before they fly to Washington to take on the Hawks.
