Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence celebrated his first career playoff victory by taking a trip to the local Waffle House.
The late night breakfast of champions is only reserved for playoff heroes like Trevor Lawrence.
After four first-half picks, the Jacksonville Jaguars were at one point down 27-0 to the Los Angeles Chargers at home in their AFC Wild Card game. People like yours truly went to sleep because we did not want to see life imitate art in the form of “Footsteps” Shane Falco. Well, pain heals, chicks dig scars and glory lasts forever. As expected, a trip to Waffle House was in order…
Lawrence scattered, smothered and covered the 27-point deficit in his All-Star Special of an NFL playoff debut performance.
Win or lose, your local Waffle House will always be there for you in the good times and the bad.
Trevor Lawrence celebrates playoff comeback victory as the good lord intended
In only his second year out of Clemson, Lawrence carries a ton of pressure in turning this perennial AFC South format of an NFL franchise around. Well, he has the Jaguars running on a heater of a lifetime. They have won six games in a row, including this improbable playoff victory over the Bolts. Jacksonville has gone from the worst team in football to one of the last eight remaining.
In the two biggest games of his NFL career up to this point, Lawrence did not play well for six quarters. His defense bailed him out in the AFC South title game vs. the Tennessee Titans last week. However, he found it within himself to avoid losing his third straight playoff game dating back to his Clemson days with a herculean effort for the ages. Only the finest for Duval County.
Overall, Jacksonville has massively overachieved in year one under Doug Pederson. He may have a Super Bowl ring to his name, but this is probably the second-greatest game in the coaching career of the Architect of the Philly Special. Though the Jaguars will probably be massive underdogs in their divisional round game, it was a win for the entire fanbase to build on, one worth celebrating.
Few things hit the spot after a great night quite like a heavy helping of Waffle House in your belly.
