Jaguars salvage win against Saints after critical touchdown drop by New Orleans in final seconds

The Jacksonville Jaguars blew a substantial lead to the New Orleans Saints in the second half, but they were able to salvage a win, 31-24, to make it four in a row for the AFC South leaders on Thursday night. 

After the Saints tied it up at 24 apiece, Trevor Lawrence, who played through a knee sprain he suffered in the team’s victory over the Indianapolis Colts this past Sunday, found Christian Kirk on a short pass and he turned up field with all his speed to find space down the right sideline and flew into the end zone for his third touchdown of the season. 

The Saints made another second-half push, with running back Alvin Kamara picking up a first down on third-and-2 to make it first and goal from Jacksonville’s six-yard line on a highly productive night for the veteran.

The Saints will hope to get back on the winning side of things next week against the Indianapolis Colts. The Jaguars will face off against the Pittsburgh Steelers after their 10 days off.
