Trevor Lawrence‘s first NFL touchdown pass went to … a guy who had just 12 catches in the previous five seasons.
The Jacksonville Jaguars signed tight end Chris Manhertz to be a blocking tight end, but on second-and-7 from the Houston 22-yard line he got a free release off the line of scrimmage, ran by linebacker Zach Cunningham and was wide open inside the 10-yard line. Cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III and safety Justin Reid tried to close on Manhertz but Lawrence delivered the ball at the 3-yard line. Manhertz snagged it and fell into the end zone with 12:20 to play in the first half.
