The Jacksonville Jaguars will close out the preseason and head into the 2021 regular season on a high note, as rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence flashed the kind of play that made him a sure-fire number one overall pick.

Lawrence completed 11 of 12 passes for 139 yards and two touchdowns in three drives leading the first team offense in the Jaguars 34-14 victory over the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium on Sunday.

“I felt good,” Lawrence said, according to ESPN’s Michael DiRocco. “I thought we had a good game plan. Honestly, it’s all about execution, though. I think we had a good game plan last week too. We just didn’t execute it. … It doesn’t matter what you run, if everybody’s on the same page and everybody knows it, you’re going to play well.

“We felt that today. We were all on the same page. We communicated well. We kept it simple, and then for me just being accurate, making quick decisions, getting the ball out of my hand, and letting our guys make plays, and that was the difference. Run game was great, too, so it was awesome.”

“It’s a good feeling — a lot better feeling coming into the locker room today as opposed to this time last week,” Lawrence said. “Just one step in the right direction. Got to keep getting better. Now they’re going to count for real. Just putting everything we have into getting ready for Houston. Built a lot of confidence going into the season. It’s nice to finish the preseason with a game like that.”
