Travor Lawrence, Tua Tagavailoa, Jaguars

At least someone was extra excited for Sunday morning’s bottom-dwelling matchup in London between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins.

As Jacksonville lined up for the opening kickoff at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, a fan wearing a Jaguars jersey suddenly made his way to midfield, getting into animated but not entirely antagonistic conversations with game officials.

Trevor Lawrence threw for 319 yards and a touchdown, completing 25-of-41 passes. James Robinson and Marvin Jones III played a big part in the Jaguars’ win, too, with rushing and receiving touchdowns. But the real hero for Jacksonville was kicker Matthew Wright, just activated from the practice squad for Sunday’s game. Not only did he nail the game-winning kick, but shortly before that tied the game with a 54-yarder—the longest of his football career,
