Trevor Lawrence completed 20-of-31 passes for 229 yards in the Jaguars’ 19-3 win over the Jets, adding seven rushes for 51 additional yards and a touchdown.
Lawrence was making some tough throws in rainy, windy conditions, but the Jags kept bogging down in the red zone.
Thankfully, he saved some face with his second 50-yard rushing performance of the season and fifth ground score.
He went over the top of the pile for a one-yard TD. Lawrence’s toe did not appear to be an issue whatsoever. Once again locked onto Evan Engram in the passing game (7/113), Lawrence didn’t find anyone else for more than 29 yards receiving.
It wasn’t a perfect game, obviously, but Lawrence is now making a weekly habit of putting really strong play on film, while also cutting back on his turnovers.
Coach Doug Pederson has the Jags at 7-8, within spitting distance of the Titans, who are 7-7 and lead the AFC South with 7-8.
