Urban Meyer has his first NFL coaching victory. Trevor Lawrence has his first win in the NFL. And the Jacksonville Jaguars have won their first game since Week 1 of the 2020 season.

The Jaguars topped the Miami Dolphins, 23-20, on Sunday morning in London. Kicker Matthew Wright, who tied the game in the fourth quarter with a 54-yard field goal that barely tucked inside the upright, hit a no-doubt 53-yarder as time expired.

The Jaguars set up the game-winning score with a brilliant penultimate play, with Lawrence hitting Laviska Shenault for a 9-yard connection on 4th and 8 to set up the game-winning kick. Meyer called timeout with :05 on the clock, and it appeared the Jaguars would throw a Hail Mary.

Instead, the Dolphins were caught napping on the play. And had they simply not touched Shenault after his first-down catch, it possible time might have run out and the game headed to overtime.

Jacksonville moved to 1-5 while Miami fell to 1-5, losers of five straight.
