Game report: Jaguars 31, Chargers 30

The 27-point rally marked the third-largest comeback in NFL playoff history.

“It’s unique,” Jaguars wide receiver Zay Jones said.

The AFC South champion Jaguars (10-8) trailed 27-7 at halftime after committing five first-half turnovers, including four interceptions by Lawrence.

Lawrence’s 3 interceptions in the first quarter all scored for the Clippers. After the first quarter, the Lightning led 17-0. Chargers cornerback Asante Samuel Jr. intercepted Lawrence three times in the first half, and Lawrence had four interceptions in the first half.

Los Angeles scored its first two touchdowns for 34 yards and went 17 of its 27 first-half scores for 35 yards.

The Jaguars bounced back from trailing by 17, 17, 9 and 10 to win their final four home games of the regular season, then rallied again in front of a frenetic crowd — Lawrence would touchdown late in the game A pass to tight end Evan Engram for touchdowns in the second and third quarters and a pass to wide receivers Marvin Jones Jr. and Zay Jones put the Jaguars in the fourth. Pull the score to within 30-20 during the season.

Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert, the No. 6 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, completed 24 of 43 passes for 273 yards and a touchdown. The Jaguars recorded three sacks and no takeaways.

Lawrence, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, completed 28 of 47 passes for 288 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. Etienne rushed for 109 yards on 20 carries.

“We all believed; we really did,” Lawrence said. “It was crazy. It’s easy to say in hindsight, but if you don’t believe it yourself, you don’t win games like this. It was a special night. I’m so proud of the team, the city…to many It was a special night for everyone and I am so grateful to everyone involved.”
