Jags shock Ravens 28-27

The Jacksonville Jaguars outlasted the Baltimore Ravens 28-27 Sunday in a comeback victory. Down 19-10 with six minutes remaining, Jacksonville scored 18 points in the final five minutes to give the Jags their fourth win of the season.

Jaguars

Jacksonville hasn’t had the strongest start to the season posting a 3-7 record in 10 games, and the Ravens came into the game atop the AFC North standings. But quarterback Trevor Lawrence had a fantastic day under center, completing 29 of his 37 passes for 321 yards and three touchdowns, allowing the Jags to upset the Ravens.

Lawrence gave the Jaguars a chance after a perfectly thrown ball to Marvin Jones Jr, making the score 27-26 with 12 seconds left.

Then, Jacksonville took the lead with a successful two-point conversion when Lawrence found Zay Jones.

Though the gap is closing, the Jaguars are one game out of second place in the AFC South division. They are behind the Indianapolis Colts for second place and trail the Tennessee Titans for first place.

Ravens

The Ravens came into the game on a four-game win streak.

Quarterback Lamar Jackson was doing everything possible on the field to extend the win streak to five. Jackson only completed 50% of his passes but threw for 254 yards and a touchdown. He also led the team in rushing with 89 yards on the ground.

The offense recorded 415 total yards including 162 yards on the ground.

Through the first three quarters, the Jags struggled to figure out the Baltimore defense. Lawrence was sacked four times and the Ravens forced a Jags turnover after sacking Lawrence in the third quarter.

After the Jaguars completed the two-point conversion, the Ravens never quit and kicker Justin Tucker came on to attempt a 67-yard field goal. However, the kick fell short in the endzone, allowing the Jags to hand the Ravens their fourth loss of the season.

 

A look Ahead

With the loss, the Ravens are now tied for the top spot in the AFC North. Four of their next six games are important divisional games. Next week, however, they will host Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos.

For Jacksonville, the team only has three divisional games remaining. Two come against the Titans and one against the Houston Texans. Next week, they’ll travel to Detroit to face the Lions.
