だった 399 ジャクソンビルが試合に勝ってからの日数, NFL史上2番目に長い連敗 (1976 バッカニアーズは負けました 26 続けて). キッカーのマシュー・ライトの足で終わった, who hit two 50-plus yard field goals, one to send the game to overtime and one to end it in overtime. 試合後, Meyer called the moments leading up to the victory some of the most stressful he’s ever experienced.
“I think it was,” Meyer said. “Maybe even including some of those big ones [national championships].”
Meyer won three total national championships at Florida and Ohio State, but admitted that this one felt just as good. That’s due to seeing a few kicks go through the uprights for the first time this season.
ジャクソンビル (1-5) had not made a field goal through the first five games, with kicker Josh Lambo battling confidence issues. Once one of the best kickers in the league, Lambo was inactive for the past three games and Wright was plucked off the street to fix the kicking woes. The UCF product delivered and then some, resulting in Lambo being released on Tuesday.
Meyer finally has his first taste of victory in the NFL, as does rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who played his finest NFL game thus far at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. Meyer now needs the winning ways to translate onto U.S. 土, particularly at Lumen Field on Halloween, when the Jaguars travel to Seattle after their bye week to take on the Seahawks (2-4).
It’ll be a prime opportunity for Meyer to get his second win, with Russell Wilson out and Geno Smith filling in at quarterback.
