The Chargers had a commanding 27-point advantage with just under 5 minutes left in the first half but were outdone by the Jaguars, who scored 31 unanswered points, culminating in a game-winning field goal. This defeat will likely make for a somber flight back home for the Chargers.
“Our defense just kept getting stops for us. We been in that situation before – not that many points. That’s the thing, just the belief in this team. It’s really cool to see what could happen when everybody believes,” Lawrence said after the game. “I wouldn’t have been able to do what I did today and what the offense was able to do to bounce back and also the defense, if we didn’t believe in one another.
“I threw four picks in the first half and those guys beside me on offense and the guys on the other side of the ball never lost faith in me. That’s one thing that makes it easier. When you know you have guys who believe in you no matter what the circumstances are.”
