Soon after a tough debut against the Texans, things appeared very superior for Jaguars rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence at the start out of this Sunday’s activity towards the Broncos.
Lawrence completed 5-of-7 passes for 73 yards and strike huge receiver Marvin Jones for a 25-garden score to stake the Jaguars to a 7- guide. The early results didn’t switch out to be a indicator of factors to appear.
Lawrence was 9-of-26 for 45 yards and two interceptions for the relaxation of the video game and the Jaguars didn’t rating yet again right up until a Jamal Agnew kickoff return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter of their 23-13 decline. The benefits have not been what Lawrence or the Jaguars are looking for, but the initially overall choose does not assume the team is a very long way from clicking offensively.
“I feel I’m processing it as very good as I can,” Lawrence explained, by means of the team’s website. “You want to gain. You function all 7 days to gain and when you really don’t, it is disappointing. But I feel like I’m in a fantastic place. I’m the exact particular person, the same mindset. Nothing’s altered. Making absolutely sure I retain my confidence every single week is major, and I assume I have that so we’re going to get better. We’re near. Last 7 days and this 7 days does not glimpse that wonderful when you search at the figures, but we just have to make a few much more plays and stick collectively.”
Lawrence was as really touted as any quarterback prospect when he arrived into the league. Two games shouldn’t shake anyone’s self-confidence that Lawrence will make great on the lofty predictions, but the 1st two weeks have presented a very good reminder that there’s usually a finding out curve for gamers shifting into the experienced ranks.
