Chargers, Jaguars return to playoffs

The Chargers are returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2018. The Jaguars last made the postseason in 2017. Both teams advanced thanks to stellar quarterback play from Chargers Justin Herbert and the Jaguars Trevor Lawrence.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Trevor Lawrence feels as if he’s been in the playoffs the past two months.

Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars were 3-7 and four games behind division-leading Tennessee in late November. It was clear they needed to find ways to start winning close games.

Lawrence easily could have panicked or even packed it in. Instead, he and the Jaguars picked it up and won six of seven down the stretch, clinching the AFC South and returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2017.
