Days after being named the Jacksonville Jaguars starting quarterback, Trevor Lawrence ended his first preseason on an exceptional note with a flawless performance against the Dallas Cowboys.
Both the Jaguars and Cowboys rested several starters for Sunday’s preseason finale, but head coach Urban Meyer wanted Lawrence to enter the regular season on a high note. Playing at AT&T Stadium, the rookie quarterback showed everyone why he is viewed as a generational talent.

The No. 1 pick sustained that level of accuracy throughout his afternoon, displaying poise in the pocket and hitting every throw he recognized. After consecutive games of being under constant duress, a better performance from the Jaguars’ offensive line opened the door for the quarterback to shine.
