Trevor Lawrence took Urban Meyer’s coach and said he needed him. And now it has a taste of success entering the regular season.
Jacksonville’s rookie No. 1 overall pick completed 11 out of 12 passes with 139 yards and two scores against Dallas’ back-up with three possessions, and Jaguar beat the cowboys at Sunday’s preseason finale. I broke it at 34-14.
Former Clemson Star had only one field goal to show eight drives in the first two exhibition games. Lawrence changed it four days after Meyer named him as a starter, and the day after Jaguar replaced his backup and fan’s favorite Gardner Minshoe.
Pharoh Cooper is Lawrence’s first TD Toss in the opening property of the 18-yard Jackson Building (1-2) on the end-zone sideline set up by a 38-yard toe-drag catch from Phillip Dorsett II. I caught.
After a short touchdown run from Carlos Hyde was called back by a holding penalty, Lawrence connected with Lavis Cashenor Jr. in the end zone four yards out for a 14-0 lead at the beginning of the second quarter.
The Cowboys (0-4) needed the last pre-season match to decide whether Cooper Rush, Garrett Gilbert, or perhaps someone outside the organization would back up Dak Prescott.
Gilbert bounced off a rough outing and led Aaron Parker to an 80-yard drive capped with a 19-yard scoring toss, but Rush damaged an edge that he believed he had created by defeating Gilbert a week ago. I didn’t do anything.
Rush was a 16-yard 8-4 with three scoreless possessions, while Gilbert finished a score of 87 yards 16-9. QB coach Doug Nussmeier carried out the attack on behalf of attack coordinator Kellen Moore. Dallas coach Mike McCarthy likes to use it to give other coaches a playcall experience later in the preseason.
In explaining why the future of the franchise would play in the pre-season finale, Meyer said Lawrence simply needed a rep, and they were on the sidelines forever for most of the first offensive linemen. I continued to come even after I did.
Jaguar primarily combined quick drops and rollouts to harm valuable QBs, with the exception of Rondel Carter’s rough penalty, which appeared to have come into contact with Lawrence’s face mask on a hit when the QB threw a pass. I kept it away.
CJ Beathard, presumed to be a backup to Lawrence, took over in the second quarter after Minshu was sent to Philadelphia for a draft topic in the second half, driving to Josh Lambo’s 45-yard field goal in the third quarter. I turned it. Jake Luton scored 137 yards at 16 yards out of 18 yards and 11 yards at Laquon Treadwell, winning an 80-yard drive in 3rd place.
No quin again
Dallas defense coordinator Dunquin is still away from the team eight days after returning from the stadium, after a positive COVID-19 test and before a 20-14 home loss in Houston before the season. Was there. Quinn didn’t elaborate on the process of returning last week, but he told reporters that he was hoping to return soon.
The Cowboys still have four players for health and safety protocols. All are planned as starters for receiver CeeDee Lamb, left guard Connor Williams, defensive harness Carlos Watkins, and Safety Da Monta Ekaji. Players will rest a few days to start the week before the preparations for the opening round of September 9th at Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay begin.
Dallas Rookie Safety Israel Mukuam had the only interception of the game off Beathard, but when Jacksonville grabbed Devin Ojibo’s face mask trying to tackle with a short pass, 3rd and 30th. Gave the first down in the place.
Treadwell’s TD catch took place after 6 plays. Ojibo scored late in a 3-yard run, with 68 yards in a hurry.
Rookie Dallas cornerback Kelvin Joseph was sent off in the first quarter due to an inguinal injury.
