Jaguars vs. Chargers Scoring: Trevor Lawrence leads 27-point comeback to LA at Super Wild Card Weekend

The Jacksonville Jaguars came from a 27-0 deficit to defeat the Los Angeles Chargers at Super Wild Card Weekend, 31-30. After a rocky start, Trevor Lawrence and the Jags began a 24–3 run in the second half, completing the comeback with a 36-yard field goal from Riley Patterson as time expired.

It was a story of two halves for the Jaguars, and Lawrence had as rough a first half as it gets. On his first 16 overtakes, the quarterback completed four for his teammates and four for the Chargers. The former No. 1 overall pick was intercepted four times in the first half – three were recorded by Asante Samuel Jr. Lawrence became the fifth quarterback to throw three interceptions in a playoff quarter since 1991, but was the first to do so in a first quarter. However, Lawrence came out of the break feeling rejuvenated.

Lawrence led three consecutive touchdown drives and ran in a two-point conversion to cut the deficit to just two points with more than five minutes left in the fourth quarter. After the Jaguars defense forced a three-and-out, Lawrence had a chance to write his own ending. With the game on the line, he led the offense 61 yards down the field on 10 plays, and Patterson sent the ball through the uprights as the clock hit triple outs.
