Trevor Lawrence will come in clutch for the Jaguars in 2023
Trevor Lawrence's yardage projections are firmly set in the neighborhood of 4,000 yards. Interestingly, this aligns well with past MVP-winning quarterbacks who typically achieved yardage numbers ranging from 3,500 to about 4,200 yards. As Lawrence gears up to showcase his talent on the field, there's a sense of anticipation that he could be on track for a standout season putting him in contention for the league's most coveted individual award.
However, as history has shown, winning when the odds are stacked against you is what garners recognition in MVP conversations. It's about making comebacks when the team is down, and last season, Jacksonville demonstrated this resilience on multiple occasions. With Lawrence leading the charge, the Jags mounted impressive comebacks that caught the attention of fans and analysts alike.
For years, the Jaguars have longed for a quarterback who can be relied upon to make crucial plays and bring the team back from seemingly insurmountable deficits. Lawrence has the potential to fulfill this role, provided he can minimize interceptions during games.
One significant showcase of his talent was during the playoffs, where Lawrence faced a formidable challenge from the Chargers. Despite the adversity, he exhibited composure and grit, proving he has what it takes to be an MVP candidate.
Speaking of MVP candidates, one essential aspect is a quarterback's touchdown-to-interception ratio. Typically, MVP contenders have an average of 25 to 30 touchdowns with 10 to 15 interceptions. Lawrence's impressive stats from last year — 25 touchdowns with only eight interceptions — are promising, and he seems primed to build upon this foundation.
