Jaguars’ Trevor Lawrence throws 4 first-half INTs vs. Chargers: Where does that rank all-time?

0

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence threw four first-half interceptions against the Los Angeles Chargers in the wild-card game. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Lawrence joins Brian Hoyer and Dan Marino as the only NFL players since 1991 to turn it over four times in the first half of a playoff game.
  • Lawrence is the second quarterback to throw four interceptions in the first half of a playoff game, joining the Broncos’ Craig Morton in Super Bowl XII.
  • Since 1970, the most turnovers by a QB in their postseason debut is five.
  • Chargers cornerback Asante Samuel Jr. intercepted three of Lawrence’s passes. He’s now tied for the second-most interceptions in a playoff game. At the time of his third pick, Samuel had caught more passes from Lawrence than any Jaguar.

The Athletic’s instant analysis:

Jacksonville’s meltdown

The Jaguars completely melted down in their first playoff game in five years, falling behind 27-7 at halftime.

Lawrence has thrown four interceptions in six possessions, and the Jaguars’ other pair of possessions were three-and-outs. They also muffed a punt to gift the Chargers their last field goal.

Because of those turnovers, the Chargers have three scoring drives – two touchdowns and a field goal – that required less than 20 yards of offense. — Howe
