Tennessee sealed the win – and officially made a remarkable comeback for the Jaguars – when Harold Landry intercepted a pass from Gardner Minshew and remained 51 seconds left. Minshew was electrifying at times, throwing 339 yards and three touchdowns, but he was unable to score a second straight surprise.
Giants Flub Final Drive against Bears.
Given the Giants’ slow starts against the Chicago Bears, it’s amazing that they had one more shot to win in the final game.
But the Giants fought halfway back 17-0, starting with a 39-yard field goal in the third quarter. Quarterback Daniel Jones developed a 95-yard, 11-game drive that ended when Barkley’s successor Dion Lewis scored a one-yard run.
The Giants added another field goal mid-quarter to bring the result down to 17-13.
The bears missed a field goal shortly before the two-minute warning. Jones then led the Giants four seconds to the 14-yard line of the bears. In the last game, Giants wide receiver Golden Tate was charged with offensive interventions after the time ran out.
The Giants fell to 2-0 while the Bears improved to 2-0.
Jaguar Titans are nearing the wild end.
It looked like it would be a laughing stock in Tennessee as the Titans took the lead 14-0 over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the first quarter. But Gardner Minshew doesn’t know when to quit, and in a game that has turned into an all-out blow, Jacksonville tied it by 30 to 30 minutes in the fourth quarter.
Minshew wasn’t as efficient as last week, but he was very productive, completing 28 of 40 passes for 319 yards and three more touchdowns. That was enough to keep up with the Titans, despite Ryan Tannehill’s near-perfect rating of 158.0, based on a 15-of-17 pass for 211 yards and four touchdowns.
Derrick Henry was largely a non-factor for Tennessee, so it was left to Tannehill to keep up with the ardent Minshew in a game that wasn’t expected to be anywhere near as competitive.
