Jags cap wild ending with game-winning field goal

The Jaguars defeated the Ravens Sunday, 22-20, on a Jason Myers 53-field goal that came on an untimed down after time had expired.

The ending sequence was as crazy as that all sounds.

The Jaguars were out of timeouts and trying to get into field goal range. But Blake Bortles completed a third-down pass in the middle of the field to Julius Thomas with eight seconds left and the Jaguars short of midfield. Bortles hurried the offense to the line, called for the snap and ended up on the ground after slipping while reaching for the snap.

Bortles got up and tried to get away from Ravens pass rusher Elvis Dumervil. He couldn’t, but Dumervil grabbed Bortles’ facemask and was immediately flagged.

With time having expired, the penalty was marched off 15 yards and the Jaguars were awarded an untimed down.

There was never a doubt about Myers’ kick that won it.

The teams traded scores in the fourth quarter and both missed two-point conversion tries. A Bortles pass to Allen Robinson made it 19-14 with 13:01 left, and the Ravens took the lead back on a Joe Flacco to Chris Givens pass with 7:30 left.

Flacco threw for 316 yards and 3 touchdowns but was intercepted twice, both in the third quarter. Bortles threw for 188 yards and 2 touchdowns. Ravens’ safety Kendrick Lewis dropped a potential game-clinching interception on the final drive.

The Ravens slip to 2-7. The Jaguars move to 3-6 headed into a Thursday night game vs. the Titans that could move the Jags into a first-place tie in the AFC South.
