The Jacksonville Jaguars will visit the Washington Commanders in the Week 1 season opener for both teams. Kickoff is Sunday, September 11 at 1:00pm ET at FedEx Field in Summerville, Maryland.
It’ll be a very interesting matchup with two teams looking to make big time jumps—the Commanders with Carson Wentz as their newly signed QB1 and the Jaguars with Trevor Lawrence entering his sophomore season under new head coach Doug Pederson.
Ready... set... let’s go!
It’s live blog time...
4:20 PM: Terrible decision by Trevor Lawrence on that third down interception. Good night, y’all.
4:16 PM: Game over. Trevor Lawrence interception. Outside of a miracle turnover by the defense, we’re 0-1.
4:08 PM: Washington playing for the field goal. Jaguars up 22-20 with under two minutes to play. They’re scared to compete.
3:55 PM: Another third down conversion by Washington. Please, Jaguars.
3:48 PM: Travon Walker just made a jaw-dropping interception. Goodness gracious.
3:43 PM: BACK TO BACK GROWN ASS MAN PLAYS HAPPENING AT FEDEX FIELD, FOLKS
3:40 PM: THE FIELD GOAL IS GOOD! WE HAVE A KICKER! JAGUARS LEADING 15-14!
3:11 PM: The Jaguars offense runs through James Robinson. No more of this 1a and 1b business with Travis Etienne. Two-point conversion no good. Jaguars down 14-9.
2:57 PM: We have Travon Walker’s first career sack!
2:37 PM: HALFTIME OBSERVATIONS!
2:30 PM: Aaaaaaaaaaand the field goal is no good. Another red zone drive failed.
2:28 PM: Good Lord what a hit on Travis Etienne. Drive comes up short. Field goal attempt incoming.
2:25 PM: FUMBLE! Rayshawn Jenkins comes up with the Washington fumble. Let’s close the gap, y’all. I think it was Travon Walker who forced it.
2:20 PM: Devin Lloyd with a missed tackle. Not a great debut from him with a few blown coverages mixed in.
2:17 PM: YES I KNOW HE’S CAUGHT A PASS ALREADY I’M TALKING ABOUT THE ONES THAT MATTER.
2:15 PM: I choose to live in a world where the quarterback and running back who played on the same college team can complete one (1) pass.
2:02 PM: Jacksonville’s offensive line is getting bullied.
1:24 PM: I would literally rather watch an entire season of The Cleaning Lady than Carson Wentz drive down the field like that ever again. Jaguars down 7-3 after each team’s opening drive.
1:15 PM: Riley Patterson (who is our kicker for those who forgot) is good from 33 yards out after the opening drive. Jaguars up 3-0 early.
1:14 PM: That’s my RB1.
1:06 PM: Yet another flag. That’s three on the opening drive. Yay.
1:04 PM: Another flag.
1:02 PM: Flag.
1:01 PM: Jaguars will start on offense and it’s James Freakin’ Robinson in at running back. That’s egg on my face—thought he’d spend most of the day on the bench. Still might, but this is encouraging news for Jacksonville.
11:30 AM: Inactives for the Jaguars for today’s game include safety Daniel Thomas, rookie running back Snoop Conner and others:
