1. Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence had a career game vs. the Texans in Week 12

The Jaguars offense missed a handful of opportunities that might've given them a few extra points. The pass that wide receiver Calvin Ridley dropped in the end zone could've been a touchdown. Also, Jacksonville went for it on fourth down on the Texans' one-yard line but couldn't reach the goal line. That's another touchdown, or at least three points, if the Jags had taken a conservative approach, and gone for the field goal.

But despite letting a few opportunities slip through their hands, the Jaguars offense operated mostly well in Week 12. Trevor Lawrence acknowledged that they still have room for improvement but was pleased to see the offense be more explosive against the Texans.

"We're getting better, we're being more explosive. We're moving the ball at will, we're doing a lot of great things. But we got to play cleaner, too many mistakes, too many dumb penalties too many, missed opportunities still even with all the things that we did well," Lawrence said after the game.

In the end, the Jaguars got the win, the most important stat. On the other hand, Trevor Lawrence also had a few individual accomplishments. For starters, he threw for 364 passing yards, the second-best mark in his career. This was his second 300-yard game of the season, and the eighth time he's pulled off the feat in his career.

Furthermore, he became the first player since 2020 to have four completions of 40+ yards in a game, and the most by any Jaguars quarterback since 2020, per Ed Werder of ESPN.

Just last week, Lawrence became the fourth quarterback in franchise history to get 10,000 passing yards. With six games left in the season, he should be able to accomplish a few more individual feats.
