1. The Jaguars need an efficient game from Trevor Lawrence in Week 12
Trevor Lawrence has improved considerably since the end of the 2021 season but he still has plenty of room for improvement. One of the areas he still needs to work on is consistency. Although he’s cut down on his interception totals, he’s thrown picks in situations when he couldn’t afford to do so.
Back in Week 1, Lawrence had a chance to mount a comeback but fell short. Similarly, he throw picks against the Houston Texans and the Denver Broncos that ended up being costly for the Jaguars. On the other hand, the former Clemson Tiger has had a couple of productive outings.
Lawrence completed 80.65 percent of his passes with one touchdown and no interception against the Raider and followed that up with two touchdowns and no picks against the Chiefs. The sophomore quarterback met with the local media Wednesday and said he feels good about his performance the last two games but thinks he can still be better.
I feel like I’ve played well the last two weeks”, Lawrence said. “But there’s still a few plays every game that I can do better. Whether it’s a missed throw, getting through my progressing, faster protection, all that stuff. There’s always things I can improve on”.
Lawrence doesn’t need to beat the Ravens alone but he needs to avoid making puzzling mistakes and have his third efficient game in a row. If he does and the defense can limit Jackson’s impact, the Jags could win this game.
