This fact really helped the Jacksonville Jaguars complete a miracle
The Jacksonville Jaguars were staring down a completely disappointing playoff performance on Saturday night when they were down by 27 to the Los Angeles Chargers. Instead, they didn’t give up and made the comeback to win the game. They kicked a game-winning field goal in the dying seconds to win.
There are a lot of things that led to them making this big of a comeback. The defense started to make stops of Justin Herbert’s offense, their own offense started to pick it up, and the team decided to keep playing as hard as they could until the very end when lots of teams would have folded.
One big reason for this win stood out in the game for the Jaguars. It is the fact that Trevor Lawrence has spread out help instead of just relying on one big star in the offense. There is no Davante Adams, Justin Jefferson, or Travis Kelce leading the way.
Lawrence threw four touchdown passes in the game and four different receivers had one. Not a single player on the Jacksonville Jaguars had two touchdown receptions. Evan Engram, Christian Kirk, Zay Jones, and Marvin Jones each had one.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are in a good spot with their offensive weapons.
This is very good for Lawrence because he has multiple people that he can be looking to pass to at any given moment. Everyone knows that Lawrence has all of the talent in the world but he is still just in his second NFL season. Being able to look all over the field will certainly help.
Nobody here even had more than 100 yards but all four of those touchdown scorers made multiple catches in the game in addition to their scores. Travis Etienne Jr and Jamal Agnew each had a reception throughout the game as well. It was a really nice performance by these weapons.
Etienne Jr. also had a great game on the ground as he had 109 yards on 20 carries. He didn’t have a touchdown but he helped set up plenty of them by being effective on the ground. The only other rusher in the game was Lawrence who had one eight-yard carry.
If Lawrence can keep having a lot of different people to work with effectively on offense, you might be surprised who they can beat.
Having four different touchdown scorers on Saturday night in Lawrence’s first career playoff win is an amazing stat. Hopefully, the wins keep coming in January. Using this strategy may help with that.
