Anthony Richardson leads Jaguars to a 31-21 comeback victory against Colts


Sep 10, 2023

In the season opener, the Colts faced the Jaguars, giving them more than they expected. Despite the strong performance of Anthony Richardson, who passed for 223 yards with a touchdown and an interception, and DeForest Buckner, who returned a fumble for a touchdown, it was not enough to secure a victory. The Jaguars, led by Trevor Lawrence, Calvin Ridley, and Zay Jones, rallied in the fourth quarter, ultimately defeating the Colts 31-21. Lawrence completed 24 of 32 passes for 241 yards with two touchdowns and a pick, while Ridley had eight catches for 101 yards and a touchdown. Jones also made a significant contribution with five receptions for 55 yards and a touchdown.

During the game, the Colts gained a total of 342 yards, with Richardson running for 40 yards on 10 carries. However, his performance was cut short due to an injury sustained during a scramble. Despite their efforts, the Jaguars were able to secure the victory with key plays in the final minutes, including a 1-yard touchdown run by Tank Bigsby and a 26-yard score by Travis Etienne. With only 59 seconds left in the game, Richardson was forced to leave the field due to a hard hit near the goal line, meaning he was unable to participate in the final three snaps.
