NFL |  Trevor Lawrence's star shines again

NFL | Trevor Lawrence’s star shines again

Trevor Lawrence was arguably the most anticipated quarterback of his generation. If the chosen one had a hard time meeting expectations upon his arrival, it is not like that this season, especially for five games. The Jacksonville Jaguars may even dream of a playoff spot.


At 6’6″, with long blonde hair and a barrel arm, Lawrence had everything to please the biggest markets in the NFL.

However, he landed in Jacksonville when the Jaguars selected him first overall in the 2021 draft. A year in which the lottery had a name. That name was Trevor Lawrence. He had made a strong impression at Clemson University. He was considered a concession player. A player who alone can get a franchise back on track. The long-awaited savior had finally arrived in Jacksonville.

However, we must be careful with the performance of the players in the NCAA.

After all, the best players go to the best colleges, and the best colleges attract the best players. At Clemson, Lawrence was able to rely on receivers now enjoying NFL success like Tee Higgins and Hunter Renfrow. He was also able to be protected by one of the best offensive lines in the United States.

Lawrence found a way to win wherever he went. In his first year, he helped the Tigers win the national championship. The following year, he lost in the Finals to the powerful LSU Tigers, led by Joe Burrow. It was his first loss since he started high school. He finished his college career with a 38-2 record. He has never lost in the season.

Get the train moving again

Although he came to the NFL on that premise, the Jaguars won just three of their 17 games during his rookie year. Nothing worked within this organization. Both in pharmacies and in the field. That’s why this team has finished last in its division for the past four seasons.

The year 2022 was shaping up to be of continuity, with seven defeats in the first ten games. That all changed when the team returned from the bye week, having won four of its last five games and sitting atop its division with a 7-8 record. The Jags could add to their lead on Sunday when they visit the home of the Houston Texans.

If this team can hope to play a playoff game for the first time since 2017, it’s thanks to Lawrence’s brilliance. In his last five games, the 23-year-old quarterback has thrown 11 touchdown passes and just one interception. He is efficient, consistent and confident. Thanks to him, receivers Christian Kirk and Zay Jones, as well as tight end Evan Engram, are having a great season.

When Lawrence started playing the first pick, his team started to win. There is no simpler correlation.

Lawrence was one of the best quarterbacks in the league in December. If the Jags do “the detail,” he’ll have to consider his candidacy for the season’s MVP trophy. Without him, the Jaguars would probably be in an NFL slump once again. Lawrence certainly isn’t the best player in this league, but at least he’s one of the most useful to his team.

The mystery of the lightning

It is curious to speak of a season below expectations for a team that has already qualified for the playoffs with a 9-6 record. Still, that’s the impression the Los Angeles Chargers give.

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert

Justin Herbert’s band will be taking part in the Winter Ball for the first time since 2018. However, something is wrong with this lineup, which has the potential to wreak havoc.

Although the names of Joey Bosa and JC Jackson are on the disabled list, the Chargers still have good defensive elements.

However, they are 21me NFL ranking for average points allowed per game.

On offense, Los Angeles has ammunition to make most coaches jealous with Herbert, Austin Ekeler, Keenan Allen and Mike Williams. However, they are in the middle of the pack for the number of points scored per game.

They lost games to the Jaguars, Seattle Seahawks and Las Vegas Raiders, when normally those teams with negative records were easy prey.

The talent on this team is undeniable and Justin Herbert’s potential is immense. However, it will be necessary to adjust before the playoffs, because the teams used to winning will not give them respite.
