The Jacksonville Jaguars pulled off an amazing comeback to defeat the Los Angeles Chargers 31-30.
Head Coach Doug Pederson has pulled off some crazy wins during his head coaching career, but it’s tough to find one that will trump the Jaguars wild 27-point comeback victory over the Chargers.
The Jaguars had a abysmal first half, but in the second half, they couldn’t be stopped. After the game ended, Pederson revealed the message he gave to his team that spurred the third biggest comeback victory in the history of the NFL Playoffs.
“It’s just what I told them at halftime, it’s kind of like our season. We’ve put ourselves in a hole at times, and we’ve worked ourselves out of it. Just to have the resiliency and the fight and the desire and the ability to continue to play, because it easily could have gone the other way. And that’s what I’m so proud of these guys for, everything was on the line and they go out and get the job done.” – Doug Pederson, NFL.com
Pederson has a Super Bowl title on his resume. He led the 2017 Philadelphia Eagles to their first ever Super Bowl trophy. Last night’s win, was a big one for the Jaguars franchise.
