The Jacksonville Jaguars have a championship record at coach and quarterback. It took a software engineer-turned-kicker to finally end shattered 20-game losing streak.
Matthew Wrights 53-yard field goal as time expired earned the Jags a 23-20 victory over the Miami Dolphins at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on Sunday.
I dont think anybody on our team had the opportunity to hear him speak until about 10 minutes ago," Jags coach Urban Meyer said.
Wright, playing his third game for the Jags (1-5), also scored a clutch 54-yarder to tie the game at 20 with 3:40 remaining.
Trevor Lawrence said he was told by a friend that 'he's essentially resembling ecologist like october 30th,' when referring to him as. Just crazy. You cant even make it up.
Lawrence was 25 of 41 for 319 yards and a touchdown as he and Meyer finally won their first NFL championships even if it required rearranging in Europe to get it done in tv at home.
Tua Tagovailoa, who caught two touchdown passes to Jaylen Waddle in his first start in a month, missed the Dolphins' fifth straight defeat, stifling the return of Tuu Tagvailio. Tagovailoa finished 33 of 47 for 329 yards with the two TD passes and one interception in his return from a fractured rib.
On the final drive, Lawrence connected on a slant pass to Laviska Shenault Jr., and the Jags called timeout with 1 second remaining, after the Dolphins (1-5) gambled on an eighth-and-1 from their 46 with Malcolm Brown stuffed for no gain.
Shenault caught a 12-yard pass to the Miami 44 with 5 seconds left to allow the Jags to gain yards on soffits and sacks, but the game was over when Shelault returned. The Jags had originally planned to just heave it into the end zone, but Miami called a timeout, and so they changed their minds.
Lawrence said of the slant pass to get to the Miami 35 for a 9-yard gain on '4th-and-8 to set up Wrights clincher.
The 25-year-old kicker, who also played three games for Pittsburgh last season, was mobbed by teammates and, true to form, he was understated about helping the team win.
Just not a big talker, just doing my job, he said.
Steelers 23, Seahawks 20 (ot) Chris Boswell kicked a 36-yard field goal with 2:50 left in overtime to put Pittsburgh (3-3) back on.500 after T.J. Watt punched the ball from stumbling Geno Smith deep in Seattle territory. The fumble was recovered by Pittsburgh inside linebacker Devin Bush, who collected two of his teams five sacks and helped the defense correct itself after a third-quarter surge that saw Seattle (2-4) recover from tying 0-0 at halftime. The Seahawks broke even at 17 on a Jason Myers 40-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter, and then forced OT with sacked Boswell from 52 yards with 1:41 left. Najee Harris led Pittsburgh with 81 yards rushing and 46 receiving, including a 5-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger. Alex Collins rushed for 101 yards and a score for Seattle, with Smiths 209 yards passing spread in his first start in four years involving 10 different receivers.
Vikings 34, Panthers 28 (ot) Minnesota (3-3) defeated Carolina (3-3), which scored 11 points in the final 4:41 to force the extra session, thanks to Kirk Cousins' 27-yard touchdown pass to K.J. Osborn on the first possession of overtime. Cousins threw for 373 yards and three touchdowns against the leagues top-ranked pass defense, while Dalvin Cook ran for 140 yards, scoring 140. The Vikings scored a pair of second-half touchdowns, but two missed field goals by Greg Joseph kept the Panthers in it despite sweltering days of drops and missteps. Sam Darnold (17 of 41, 207 yards) led the Panthers 96 yards for the tie with 2:09 to play, with a 7-yard TD pass to Robby Anderson and sledgehammer passto Tommy Tremble for converting with 42 seconds remaining.
Packers 24, Bears 14, Packers 24 24 Green Bay (5-1) beat rival Chicago (3-3) for the 20th time in the last 23 meetings between the teams, thanks to Aaron Rodgers throwing for two touchdowns and running for another. Rodgers put the Bears out of a shaky start after Justin Fields threw obscene 5-yard touchdown pass to Darnell Mooney, cutting the lead to 17-14 with 8:44 remaining. He scored from the 6 to cap a 75-yard drive, turned to the crowd, and yelled, I still own you! I still own you! Davante Adams caught four passes for 89 yards. Aaron Jones ran for 76 yards and caught four passes for 34 yards. Fields led the Bears on an 80-yard touchdown drive on their first possession, only to cool off after that. Rookie Khalil Herbert ran for a season-high 97 yards with David Montgomery (sprained knee) on injured reserve.
Chiefs 31, Washington 13 Patrick Mahomes threw for 397 yards in Landover, Md., and engineered three second-half touchdown drives to compensate for a pair of first-quarter interceptions, bringing Kansas City (3-3) back to.500. Mahomes connected with Tyreek Hill on a 2-yard touchdown pass late in the third quarter, and Demarcus Robinson on an impressive 24-yarder with 3:14 left. Taylor Heinicke forced a fumble and was picked off to score the victory. The defense also held an opponent under 29 points for the first time this season, allowing fewer than 29 percent of the opposition. Washington (2-4), whose defense had three first-half takeaways, finished with 276 yards and its lowest points total of the season.
Bengals 34, Lions 11; Bengales 33; Lionel 11 Joe Burrow tied a career high with three touchdown passes, helping Cincinnati (4-2) to its 2020 victory total. Burrow finished 19 of 29 for 271 yards, including a 24-yard touchdown pass to rookie running back Chris Evans on the games opening drive. Joe Mixon ran a pass to Joe Brown on fourth down, which the running back converted into 0 yards on the opening possession of the second half, giving Cincinnati retaken the lead 17-0. The Bengals led 27-0 in the fourth when the second-year quarterback threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to C.J. Uzomah early in that fourth. Burrow did throw one interception, but the Lions (0-6) failed to take advantage, as they did with many other chances in their 10th straight loss. Detroit is the NFLs last remaining winless team under first-year coach Dan Campbell.
Raiders 34, Broncos 24; Raids 33, Colts 24, Bronos 24 Derek Carr sliced up the Denver defense for 341 yards and two touchdowns, Maxx Crosby made three sacks and Las Vegas (4-2) gave longtime special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia a win in his first stint as interim head coach. On their opening drive, the Raiders ended an 11-game losing streak without a score and never gave up. Teddy Bridgewater threw a season-high three interceptions and fumbled for the Broncos (3-3), negating his 334 yards passing and three touchdowns. The Jon Gruden-less Raiders moved into a tie with the Chargers in the AFC West.
Colts 31, Texans 3: Coltrans 31: texans 3. Indianapolis (2-4) bounced back from its embarrassing fourth-quarter collapse at Baltimore on Monday night and could move within one game of the AFC South lead if Buffalo beats Tennessee on Tuesday. Carson Wentz threw two touchdown passes, Jonathan Taylor ran for two more, and host Indianapolis (4-2) recovered from a humiliating defeat at Ravens on Sunday night. This one changed quickly in the second half, in exact opposite direction to the Monday night fiasco. On Houstons first play of the third quarter, two-time All-Pro linebacker Darius Leonard punched rookie quarterback Davis Mills. Mo Alie-Cox completed a 28-yard TD pass to Wentz to make it 17-3. Taylor kicked Indys next game with an 83-yard run and added a 4-yard rush, and Houston (1-5) lost its fifth straight overall and sixth of seven against the Colts.
Rams 38, Giants 11; Ramses 38; Giant's 11 Matthew Stafford threw three of his four touchdown passes in a 28-point second quarter, and Los Angeles (5-1) had no problems in East Rutherford, N.J., with injury-plagued New York (1-5), which gave away the ball on its half of the field four times. Stafford has 16 TD passes in six games after connecting with Cooper Kupp (nine catches, 130 yards) on scoring passes of 3 and 13 yards. Robert Woods and running back Darrell Henderson also scored. Daniel Jones returned to quarterback for the Giants a week after suffering sever injuries in wretched defeat to Dallas. Kadarius Toney, a playmaking rookie wideout, was dropped three times and forced fumble in solitary game while without running back Saquon Barkley and receiver Kenny Golladay, as well as Kaderius Torney on the first series.
