Game report: Jaguars 26, Colts 11

JACKSONVILLE – Trevor Lawrence played perhaps his best game of the season.

The result? A very surprising and entertaining 2021 regular season finale – a 26-11 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on a sunny January afternoon at TIAA Bank Field ended a long and difficult Jaguars season and hurt their AFC South postseason chances. rivals

“Really proud of our guys,” said Lawrence, the Jaguars’ new quarterback. – All were closed.

Lawrence added: “If they (the Cots) win this game, they’re in (the post-season). The stakes aren’t going up, and just to come out and dominate, it feels great to end the season like that.”

The Jaguars (3-14), trailed 13-3 at halftime and trailed 26-3 in the fourth quarter before the Colts scored in the final five minutes, snapping an eight-game losing streak. The Jaguars now have a seven-game winning streak against the Colts.

“I thought the guys responded,” Jaguars Interim Coach Darrell Bevell said. “I told them a few minutes ago today that I was inspired. It’s an exciting game for the guys to go out and play as hard, with so much drive, with such drive and passion, and it really showed. , and I couldn’t be happier for all those guys.”

Lawrence, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, completed 23 of 32 passes for 223 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions. He completed his first 10 passes and 14 of his first 15.

“He was really dialed in this season,” Bevell said of Lawrence. “It’s been a tough season for everyone involved, but the way he’s done and the way everyone’s responded today, I couldn’t be happier.”

Funny to see my boys close like that! 2022 will be good 💪🏼 #DUUUVAL

The game was defined by a suffocating, aggressive and celebratory Jaguars defense, as the Colts held running back Jonathan Taylor – the NFL’s leading rusher – to 77 yards on 15 carries. Colts quarterback Carson Wentz completed 17 of 29 passes for 185 yards and no touchdowns with one interception.

The Jaguars sacked Wentz six times. Their two steals led to 10 points, their eighth and ninth of the season.

“It feels great, it feels good to end on a high note after this turmoil that we’ve been through all season, a lot of distractions, a lot of stuff,” Jaguars defensive lineman Dawuane Smoot said. “It’s good to get back in and actually get that W, so it feels great.”

The result was a victory dominated by the Jaguars from the opening possession, when Lawrence hit wide receiver Laquon Treadwell with a two-yard touchdown pass. Kicker Matthew Wright scored four touchdowns – two in the first half and two in the second – and Lawrence capped the victory with a three-yard touchdown pass to veteran wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. late in the third quarter.

The Jaguars defense stopped the Colts twice on 4th and short.

Defensive lineman Adam Gotsis was tackled by Taylor on 4th-and-2 from the Jaguars 42 in the first quarter and cornerback Shaq Griffin and Jaguars linebacker Josh Allen were among multiple Jaguars linebackers to stop Taylor on 4th-and-4. 1-and-goal with 12:53 left.

That goal line kept the score at 23-3.

The Jaguars had 318 total yards to the Colts’ 233. They had a 19-13 advantage on first downs.

“It’s awesome because that’s the push we need, to understand that we can be that team that can go that far,” Griffin said. “To knock off a team that had a chance to make the playoffs, that’s huge. It wasn’t a losing team that we played against, and to get that W in this critical situation…”

“The main thing is I want these guys to build on that. I want to be a lot better than I was this year, and I hope those guys feel the same way.”

So what was the reasoning behind that Chargers timeout? "We felt like they were going to run the ball, so we wanted to get the best 11-man run defense [in the game]," Staley said. "My mindset was to make the field goal as long as possible."
