Former Utah Star Seals win for late-turnover Jaguars

SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utah star Devin Lloyd sealed a win for the Jacksonville Jaguars with a late rebound against the Las Vegas Raiders.

The Jaguars hosted the Raiders on Sunday, November 6 at TIAA Bank Field.

With 26 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, Las Vegas faced a 4th and 17th from its own 18-yard line and was seven points behind Jacksonville. The Raiders attempted to move the ball around the field with a series of side throws before Las Vegas running back Josh Jacobs threw the ball and Lloyd grabbed it out of the air to seal the Jaguars’ victory.

The Jaguars went into winning formation and beat the Raiders 27-20.

Lloyd finished the game with a tackle, a pass break, a quarterback hit, and a fumble recovery.

With the win, the Jaguars improved their record to 3-6 this season, including 2-3 at home.
