The Jacksonville Jaguars appeared to be headed toward another heartbreaking loss this season. Instead, QB Trevor Lawrence led a comeback win 28-27 over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 12 on Sunday. Lawrence connected with Marvin Jones Jr. for a late TD to make it 27-26 Ravens before the Jags went for the win. Lawrence hit Zay Jones for the two-point conversion to take a 28-27 lead.

The Jaguars went down 27-20 with just over 2:00 left in the fourth quarter. Lawrence was able to lead the game-winning drive and Doug Pederson had the stones to go for it instead of play for overtime and tie the game with 14 seconds left. Lawrence finished with 321 yards and three TDs, plus the conversion in the win.
Jacksonville was an underdog at home at +3.5 on DraftKings Sportsbook heading into Week 12. Most of the money was on the Ravens to take care of business. Baltimore struggled pretty much all game, its biggest lead being 19-10. The loss likely eliminates QB Lamar Jackson from NFL MVP contention with six games to go in the season. Jackson had an OK game but finished 16/32 for 254 yards and a TD while adding 89 yards rushing.
The Ravens nearly won the game at the end with a 67-yard FG attempt from Justin Tucker with no time left.
