Remember when the jaguars defeated the Colts 24-0 and then the Chargers 38-10 and everybody thought this team had turned the corner with Urban Meyer being gone?
The team hasn’t won a game in a month and is currently in the midst of a brutal 4-game losing streak. After getting off to a very encouraging 2-1 start, the Jacksonville Jaguars are 2-5 as they watch themselves plummet back down towards the bottom of the AFC South.
Second-year quarterback Trevor Lawrence is unhappy about the way things are going and his comments prove that.
“We’re just not making enough of those plays right now,” Lawrence said. “We’re that close. That’s what’s frustrating for us, too, as players. You know, you put so much into it, and coaches too, obviously. You put so much into it. To come up that short especially this many times, early in the season, is frustrating. Everybody feels that.
“Guys are sticking together. We have a lot of belief in that locker room, and you saw it today. We came up a yard short at the very end to [potentially] win that game by a point. [If we were to] kick the extra point, we beat them. So that’s how close it is. That’s why I think you see the look on the guys’ faces and just the energy. That’s the way it should be when you are losing like that. No one is, obviously, happy about it.”
The team nearly pulled off an upset of the New York Giants in Week 7, as Christian Kirk came up just a yard short of the end zone for a score that would have tied the game.
Instead, Jacksonville came up just short, and now they will work on ending their losing streak in Week 8 against the Denver Broncos.
Trevor Lawrence completed 22-of-43 passes for 310 yards with zero touchdowns and zero interceptions, while also rushing four times for an additional three yards and one touchdown in Jacksonville’s 23-17 loss to the Giants in Week 7.
Lawrence has thrown for 1,707 yards with nine passing touchdowns and just four interceptions. He has also rushed for an additional 84 yards and three more touchdowns through seven games.
