Haters on social media counted out the Jaguars. Then the unbelievable happened

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – It didn’t look good.

The Los Angeles Chargers shocked the Jacksonville Jaguars and 70,000 fans at TIAA Bank Field Saturday night by taking a 27-0 lead in the wild card round of the playoffs.

Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence threw four interceptions in the first half and it looked like the Chargers were rolling to an easy win.

Hundreds of fans left the stadium on a frosty night and made their way home, disillusioned.

“T-Law ain’t ready man,” a fan who left the game mid-game told News4JAX. “I’m happy, but I wanted to go on.”

Dozens of people on social media shared similar sentiments, as noted by Ice Cold Takes (@OldTakesExposed). Some urged Jaguars fans to go home. Someone else called on the Jaguars to vacate their AFC South title and another called them “cheating kittens”.

By now you probably know what happened next: it was always the Jags.

Lawrence bounced back with an error-free second half and threw four touchdown passes to lead the team to an unlikely 31-30 victory.

It was the third-greatest comeback in playoff history and propelled the Jaguars into the divisional playoffs. Their opponent will be finalized on Sunday but will likely be either the top-seeded Chiefs or the No. 2-seeded Bills barring major surprises.

Jaguar’s legendary running back Maurice Jones-Drew was one of those who never doubted his former team.

“That’s what the Chargers do,” Jones-Drew said.

Apparently, comedian Katt Williams, who was in Jacksonville for a show, was also among the believers.

At least one of the people who tweeted doubts about the Jaguars changed their mind after the game ended.

“Hey, I like to take the L here. This was too much fun and madness not to be happy for the Jaguars and Coach of the Year Doug Pederson,” Dan Leach tweeted.
