The Jacksonville Jaguars showed a bunch of promising signs on an opening drive against the Washington Commanders, but couldn’t cap it with a touchdown.
After long completions to free agent acquisitions Christian Kirk and Zay Jones followed by a 22-yard run from James Robinson, quarterback Trevor Lawrence missed a chance to finish the drive with six points when he overthrew a wide open Travis Etienne.

Etienne, who missed his entire rookie season with a Lisfranc injury, didn’t touch the ball on the opening drive, but showed off his speed when he ran right by a Commanders linebacker on the play.
The missed opportunity eventually resulted in a short field goal for Riley Patterson that gave Jacksonville an early 3-0 lead. The Commanders responded with a touchdown drive to make it 7-3.
