JACKSONVILLE – This was a grinder, then it turned wild. Really wild. And really dramatic.

This time, the Jaguars were gritty and dramatic enough.

And this time, they pulled off a victory.

Quarterback Trevor Lawrence threw three touchdown passes including the game-winner in the waning seconds to lead the Jaguars past the AFC North-leading Baltimore Ravens, 28-27, in a back-and-forth fourth quarter in front of 59,560 at TIAA Bank Field Sunday afternoon.

"It was an awesome day – a lot of fun," Lawrence said, with Head Coach Doug Pederson adding: "This is a big one for all of us."

Lawrence, who completed 29 of 37 passes for 321 yards with no interceptions Sunday, threw a 10-yard touchdown to wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. to pull the Jaguars to within one, 27-26, with :14 remaining. His two-point pass to wide receiver Zay Jones gave the Jaguars the lead.

"It's just huge," said Zay Jones, who caught 11 passes for 145 yards including a 29-yard reception on third-and-six one play before Marvin Jones' last-drive touchdown. "You see the locker room, how excited guys are. It's exciting to see everyone come together.

"They're a playoff-caliber opponent. To come in and get a win like this says a lot about and the resilience we have."

The Jaguars' final drive began with 2:02 remaining and covered 75 yards in 10 plays. The Jaguars faced third-and-21 at their 14 early in the drive, with Lawrence converting the first down with throws to 16 yards to wide receiver Christian Kirk and 10 yards to Marvin Jones Jr.

"The guys didn't flinch," Lawrence said.

Ravens kicker Justin Tucker's 67-yard field goal was short on the game's final play, giving the Jaguars a second victory in three games. The Jaguars (4-7) had lost five previous games this season in which they had possession in the final minutes with time tie or take the lead.

"Every game has been close," Marvin Jones Jr. said. "A lot games we were on the other side of that. It feels good to be on the winning side of that."

The Ravens (7-4) had a four-game winning streak snapped.

"It was an awesome team win," Lawrence said. "It was great."

Jackson, the NFL Most Valuable Player in 2019, completed 16 of 32 passes for 254 yards and one touchdowns with no interceptions. Jackson rushed for 89 yards on 14 carries.

Riley Patterson's 29-yard field goal gave the Jaguars a 20-19 lead with 4:19 remaining. The Jaguars trailed 20-10 earlier in the quarter with a one-yard touchdown pass from Lawrence to wide receiver Jamal Agnew cutting into the lead.

Lawrence's 28-yard touchdown pass to backup running back JaMycal Hasty was the game's only touchdown through three quarters. Four field goals by Tucker gave Baltimore a 12-10 lead entering the fourth quarter, with the Jaguars' defense holding the Ravens to two touchdowns on five red-zone possessions.

The Jaguars (4-7) won for a second time in three games after a five-game losing streak. The Ravens (7-4) had a four-game winning streak snapped.

Lawrence completed 29 of 37 passes for 321 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions, and his 28-yard touchdown pass to backup running back JaMycal Hasty was the game's only touchdown through three quarters.

Jackson, the NFL Most Valuable Player in 2019, completed 16 of 32 passes for 254 yards and one touchdown with no interceptions. Jackson rushed for 89 yards on 14 carries.

Four field goals by Tucker gave Baltimore a 12-10 lead entering the fourth quarter.

The Jaguars' defense registered one sack – by nose tackle DaVon Hamilton, who also forced and recovered a fumble. The Jaguars had two takeaways Sunday, with a fumble recovery by cornerback Tyson Campbell leading to Agnew's fourth-quarter touchdown.

"There's no panic with these guys," Pederson said. "They believe in themselves. The guys made plays. That's what it takes. Was it a perfect game? No. By no means. That's a good football team. They're a playoff-caliber team but our guys just kept fighting and believing."

Step by step:

  • Tucker's 27-yard field goal capped an 11-play, 65-yard, game-opening drive for a 3-0 Baltimore lead with 9:23 remaining in the first quarter; Jackson opened the game with a 25-yard pass to Andrews. Tucker pushed the lead to 6-0 with 2:03 remaining in the quarter with a 29-yard field goal that capped an eight-play, 38-yard drive on the ensuing possession; that drive began when Ravens defensive lineman Calais Campbell stuffed a fourth-and-one sneak by Lawrence from the 50.
  • The Jaguars took their first lead early in the second quarter when Lawrence passed 28 yards to Hasty, who lined up wide and scored on go route on a beautiful pass; Hamilton set up the drive by forcing and recovering a fumble by Jackson on 4th-and-1 from the 50. Tucker gave the Ravens a 9-7 lead with 4:51 remaining in the half with a 55-yard field goal. Patterson's 22-yard field goal with :09 remaining in the quarter gave the Jaguars a 10-9 halftime lead.
  • Tucker's 24-yard field goal capped the Ravens' opening drive of the second half for a 12-10 Baltimore lead with 7:51 remaining in the third quarter.
  • The Ravens pushed the lead to 19-10 with running back Gus Edwards' one-yard touchdown run with 13:07 remaining in the quarter; that came seven plays after cornerback Marcus Peters recovered a fumble by Lawrence, who was sacked by outside linebacker Tyus Bowers. Lawrence drove the Jaguars 75 yards in 14 plays, cutting the lead to 19-17 with a one-yard touchdown pass to Agnew. Patterson's 29-yard field goal then gave the Jaguars a 20-19 lead with 4:19 remaining, a score set up when Campbell recovered a fumble by Edwards at the Ravens 16.

Notable:

  • Jaguars rookie Chad Muma started at inside linebacker for Devin Lloyd Sunday after Lloyd – the No. 27 overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft – started the first 10 games. Head Coach Doug Pederson said this week the two likely would share repetitions Sunday.
  • Running back Darrell Henderson Jr., acquired by the Jaguars off waivers from the Los Angeles Rams this past week, was among five inactives Sunday. The others: Wide receiver Kendric Pryor, safety Tyree Gillespie, cornerback Tre Herndon and outside linebacker De'Shaan Dixon.

Injury report: Jaguars running back Travis Etienne sustained a foot injury in the second quarter and did not return.
