Trevor Lawrence: You couldn’t write a better script, but don’t want to do that again

AFC Wild Card Playoffs - Los Angeles Chargers v Jacksonville Jaguars

Saturday night was a tale of two halves for Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

With the Chargers up 27-7 at halftime, it looked like the story of Lawrence’s playoff debut would be the Jaguars going down in flames because of the quarterback’s four interceptions. That story changed dramatically in the second half, however.

Lawrence threw three touchdown passes and the Jaguars held the Chargers to a field goal as they pulled off the third-biggest comeback in postseason history. Lawrence finished with four touchdown passes overall and the headline became his short memory and the team’s belief in him even after he stumbled.

When the 31-30 win was in the books, Lawrence said it was the most fun he never wants to have again.

“You couldn’t write a better script to win a game like that tonight, so it makes it more special, but don’t want to do that again,” Lawrence said, via Michael DiRocco of “Got to take care of the ball. That’s where it starts.”

Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson compared Lawrence’s rebound to ones he saw from former teammate Brett Favre, who was the last quarterback to throw four interceptions in one half of a playoff game. The Packers lost that 2002 game, but Lawrence and the Jaguars will be moving on after a memorable night in Jacksonville.

  1. Considering how fragile a LOT of these young NFL players seem to be I’m pretty impressed with Lawrence’s ability to just go to the next play and forget about the last one.

    I’m still not convinced (never was) that he will be a great NFL QB but I have to give the kid credit for his ability to just overcome adversity and keep playing.
