Trevor Lawrence Tweets the Perfect Meme to Capture Jaguars' Epic Comeback Win
It was at tale of two halves for the Jacksonville Jaguars during their first home playoff game since 2018. They overcame a 27-7 halftime deficit to defeat the Los Angeles Chargers by a score of 31-30 in regulation. Kicker Riley Patterson nailed a 36-yard field goal as time expired at TIAA Bank Field.
The Jaguars even trailed by 27-0 at one point in the first half, making the crazy AFC Wild Card game the third-largest comeback in NFL Playoff history. Quarterback Trevor Lawrence overcame a horrible first-half effort to step up when it mattered most and tweeted the perfect meme afterwards, too.
Jacksonville Jaguars Playoff Comeback
The meme was that of a high school football player that was said "they had us in the first half not gonna lie," in a postgame interview. Much like the Jaguars, that player's team mounted a huge come-from-behind victory. Lawrence was able to poke fun at his early struggles and give the fans a laugh.
The former Clemson product started the game by completing only 4 of his 16 pass attempts for 30 yards and 4 interceptions. After that point, Lawrence was light out, though. He completed 24 of his final 31 pass attempts for 253 yards and 4 touchdowns, while rushing for a two-point conversion.
The Jaguars certainly deserve to revel in their victory for the weekend, but there is still work to be done. Jacksonville have advanced to play in the Divisional Round against either the Kansas City Chiefs, Cincinnati Bengals or Baltimore Ravens. None of those matchups line up as unchallenging.
Jacksonville has odds set at +2500 to win Super Bowl 57, per FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
