2. Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence threw four interceptions in Week 14.
The Jaguars played a good first half against the Titans. Even though they were trailing 10-0 at halftime, they had a realistic chance to get back in the game and make things competitive. Early in the third quarter, Trevor Lawrence was 12-of-14, stat via Jordan De Lugo of Generation Jaguar, and hadn’t thrown an interception yet. But then, he threw the first one and he finished the ball with four.
You could make the case Lawrence was trying to give the Jags’ a spark and make something happen but things snowballed after the first interception. The fact that the team forgot they could run the ball didn’t help matters and the rookie passer deserves to be held accountable for the mistakes but you will have a hard time finding a first-year signal-caller that would have thrived under the same circumstances.
Lawrence did have a few good throws. Two plays before his first interception he connected with wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. for a 14-yard completion. Moreover, the aforementioned interception was the result of Lavisa Shenault Jr. not being able to come down with the catch. Titans cornerback Elijah Molden also deserves credit for playing the ball well but that was the kind of reception Viska has to make.
Lawrence, just like any other rookie, is experiencing a learning curve, and performances like the one against the Titans were to be expected.
