Former Clemson football quarterback Trevor Lawrence led the Jacksonville Jaguars on an epic game-winning drive that included a two-point conversion with 14 seconds to go as the team defeated the Baltimore Ravens 28-27 Sunday to move to 4-7 on the season.
Lawrence outplayed Lamar Jackson, completing 27 of 39 passes for 321 yards and 3 touchdowns, while Jackson was 16 of 32 for 254 yards and a score.
Jackson also gained 89 yards on the ground.
But it was Lawrence that led his team on a 10-play 75-yard drive that started with 2:02 left and the Jags trailing by 7, which included a conversion on fourth and five from their own 30.
A 10-yard pass to Marvin Jones, Jr. made it a 27-26 game and Jacksonville Head Coach Doug Pederson eschewed the tie and called for a two-point conversion attempt.
Lawrence found Zay Jones on the two-point attempt for a 28-27 Jacksonville lead.
The Jags then attempted a questionable squib kick that gave Baltimore the ball at their 39 after the return, opening the door for the best kicker in the history of the league to possibly attempt a game-winning field goal.
That’s just how it played out as Jackson completed a pass for a 12-yard gain to put the ball at the Jacksonville 49 with 2 seconds left and Justin Tucker trotted onto the field to attempt a 67-yard game-winning field goal.
Tucker’s kick was aimed dead on, but came up 4 or so yards short and the Jags had their fourth win of the season after totaling only three all of last season.
Former Clemson football quarterback Trevor Lawrence lead a much improved Jaguars team past the Baltimore Ravens
While Jacksonville is only 4-7, it’s evident that they’re a much better team than they were under Urban Meyer in 2021 and Lawrence is vastly improved in year two.
Former Clemson running back Travis Etienne
was injured early, carrying only twice for three yards before departing with what was termed a foot injury, and not returning.
Etienne missed all of the 2021 season, which should have been his rookie season, with a Lisfranc injury.
