Robinson, the host running back, scores the first touchdown with a 6-yard run for a 7-0. Then comes Lawrence’s running goal. 14-0 for Jacksonville, already ahead 19-10 on Arizona last Sunday and then recovered. A flash on the Lawrence-Shenault axis is worth 52 yards and the Jaguars seem to be able to ramp up. But the race turns when with 53 ”to play Coach Meyer tries the 4th down 1 yard from the opponent’s end zone. It would be the knockout blow. But Lawrence is stopped by Wilson’s tackle: conversion failed and Jaguars leaving 3 points on the road. “Only” 14-0 at half-time.
The first drive of the second half turns into a goal for Cincy: Burrow throws long for Chase, then Uzomah closes it in the end zone. Match reopened: 14-7. That with 5 ‘to play in the 3rd quarter becomes 14-14 when Mixon begins to run with construct up to walk in the end zone for a draw. At the beginning of the 4th quarter Jacksonville comes back with a touchdown run by the usual Robinson. 21-14 for guests. Burrow reacts: passing from 31 yards again for Uzomah and 21 all. The decisive game is yet another throw of Burrow for Uzomah which allows McPherson to kick the victory kick at the end. After having made a mistake from 43 yards, he hits the poles of 35.
