Jacksonville Jaguars Travis Etienne, Trevor Lawrence, and Christian Kirk combined in a tie that saw the definition of hard work and teamwork on show as Kirk said, “I don’t think I’ve run that fast since college.”
The Jaguars headed into the Thursday night fixture with doubts over the availability of quarterback Trevor Lawrence after sustaining a sprained knee in the final minutes of the match against Indianapolis on Sunday. However, Lawrence was present and starting for the side as he combined with running back Travis Etienne and Kirk to bring home the win.
Kirk said to Sky Sports after the match, “I don’t think I’ve run that fast since college.
“That was some vintage stuff. I’m glad I was able to do it in that moment.”
A sprained knee was not stopping Lawrence either, as he started the match with plans not to move around much.
Despite that, he ran more than usual and threw the game-winning touchdown to Kirk.
He said: “It’s crazy how you have something like that going on and don’t plan on moving a lot, and you end up running the ball more than you usually do.
“It felt pretty good. It didn’t bother me too much and definitely didn’t set it back.
“That was the goal, to play, find a way to win the game, and not set it back.”
Etienne ran for two touchdowns in the match, becoming the first player in the club’s history to rush for two touchdowns in three consecutive games.
The Jaguars next up face the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 8 as they head on the road to the Acrisure Stadium.
