HAYS BLOG: Jaguars…WIN!!!!

There will be 14 teams in the NFL that play in Week 6 and lose.

The Jaguars will not be one of them. For the first time in a long time.

Savor it.

Embrace it.

Enjoy it.

We don’t know when the next one will come.

But we do know that a young Jaguars team showed major resolve in coming back to beat Miami 23-20 on a game-winning 53-yard field goal by Matthew Wright as time expired on Sunday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. Wright ended the Jaguars field-goal misery this season, connecting on two long one (54 and 53 yards) in the final 3:40 of the game. He made a 40-yard try in the first quarter.

There were several more outstanding performances.

Rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence never got discouraged through a few drops and blown protections. He stayed steady and completed 25 of 41 passes for 319 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions for a 93.4 passer rating.

Receiver Marvin Jones caught seven passes for 100 yards and a touchdown, including a dazzling 28-year score with 40 seconds left in the first half.

Running back James Robinson finally was unleashed. He was the only running back to carry the ball, getting it 17 times for 73 yards. He also caught three passes for 28 yards.

The defense had outstanding moments as well. Cornerback Nevin Lawson, a 30-year-old veteran, intercepted Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

But none of the performances were more outstanding than the performance of you: The fan – that endured this 14-month misery and still cares enough to read this.

Enjoy it.

Wear your Jaguars gear tomorrow. I know you do when you lose as well. But really savor the taste of this victory.

The Jaguars don’t play again until Oct. 31. You’ve got plenty of time to bask in the victory.

LAMM AT LARGE: Future bleak for Meyer in Jacksonville

I hate to pile on but Urban Meyer does look lost, confused and miserable. He doesn't handle losing very well. He showed that after his Florida Gators were blown out by Alabama in the '09 SEC Championship Game. He suffered a major anxiety attack later that night that all but ended his days in Gainesville. He had to know taking the Jaguars job was a risk. Not only were the Jaguars the worse team in the NFL, but it was […]
