Trevor Lawrence rushed for seven yards and his first score in the professional league
The quarterback Trevor Lawrence, first overall pick in the past NFL draft, I note his first rushing touchdown.
The Jacksonville Jaguars rookie took the ball with just over four minutes left in the second quarter at the Cincinnati Bengals’ 7-yard line; hauled and reached the promised area not before breaking the waist of Sam Hubbard, who tried to go for the 21-year-old from Clemson.
Then, late in the same episode, one yard from the end zone on the fourth down and one, Trevor Lawrence tried again for a touchdown run. But this time he was stopped by the Bengals line.
Jaguars and Bengals open Week 4 of the NFL season. It is a special duel as it involves the last two global selections – the aforementioned Lawrence and Joe Burrow-.
Both quarterbacks played the 2019 National College Football Final with a win for Burrow, who led LSU. In the 2020 draft Cincinnati chose the champion as its first pick.
Lawrence stayed one more year in college sports and in the last draft he was taken by the Jaguars, with whom he has not won after two weeks. However, with his scoring the team leads by two series for the first time since Week 17 of 2019 (they beat the Indianapolis Colts).
It was also the first time since Week 7 of 2019 (also against the Bengals) that the Jacksonville team accumulated more than 100 yards rushing in the first quarter.
Lawrence has already scored for the first time in the NFL. Now he is looking for his first victory and it would be very pertinent if it happened against Joe Burrow, his former great collegiate rival and the last No. 1 overall pick before him.
