Jaguars intercept Prescott, stun Cowboys 40-34 in OT, Jaguars intercept Prescott, stun Cowboys 40-34 in OT
Rayshawn Jenkins snatched the ball inches from the ground and raced the other way.
Not even as a kid playing peewee football in Florida. Not in the NFL. Not in college. Not in high school. So Jenkins had one thought: score.
Tre Herndon tipped Prescott’s low throw to Noah Brown, and Jenkins made a shoelace grab and went untouched to the end zone to end Jacksonville’s 20-game skid — an NFL record — against teams from the other conference.
“That’s a play you dream about ever since you’re 8 years old, ever since I started playing this game, to be the guy to make a play like that for us to get that win,” said Jenkins, who became the first player in NFL history with 18 tackles and two interceptions in the same game. “That was pretty cool to do.”
Prescott sat on the field in disbelief as the Jaguars celebrated one of their more improbable wins in franchise history.
“Unlucky bounce for us; hell of a play by them,” Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said.
The Jaguars stormed back from a 27-10 deficit to take the lead in the fourth, only to see Prescott and the Cowboys answer. Trevor Lawrence responded by driving Jacksonville into position for Riley Patterson’s 48-yard field that sent the game into overtime.
The shocker ended Dallas’ four-game winning streak and prevented it from securing an NFC playoff berth, at least for a few hours.
The Cowboys wrapped up a wild-card spot later Sunday when the New York Giants beat Washington. Jacksonville (6-8), meanwhile, got within one game of reeling first-place Tennessee in the topsy-turvy AFC South.
Prescott was completed 23 of 30 passes for 256 yards, with three touchdowns and two interceptions. Two of his TD passes went to Brown.
Lawrence was better. He completed 27 of 42 passes for 318 yards, with four touchdowns and an interception.
Lawrence also lost a fumble. Three of his TD passes went to Zay Jones. Travis Etienne ran for 103 yards.
It was Jacksonville’s first cross-conference win since the 2018 season opener against the Giants Share this
