‘Tis the season for horrors, and the Jaguars left New Orleans surviving a late scare against the Saints on “Thursday Night Football.” ‘

Jacksonville improved to 5-2 on the season, as Doug Pederson’s crew held off a late comeback attempt from New Orleans, emerging with a 31-24 victory. The win pushes the Jaguars’ winning streak to four games, while the loss dropped the Saints’ record to 3-4. 

The Jaguars controlled a majority of the game, getting out to an early lead in the first half and entering the fourth quarter up 24-9. At the time, the Saints offense was completely out of sync, as quarterback Derek Carr had just thrown a pick-six to Foye Oluokun and was struggling to connect with any of his key weapons, outside of running back Alvin Kamara. 

However, Trevor Lawrence and the Jags let the Saints stick around, failing to put away the opposition. It led to two fourth quarter touchdowns by New Orleans that tied the game with less than six minutes to go, and the momentum had fully shifted at Caesers SuperDome to the home side. 

That was until Christian Kirk came through for the Jaguars. After the two sides exchanged punts, the wide receiver broke loose for a 44-yard touchdown, re-taking the lead for Jacksonville with 3:08 left to go. 

The Saints nearly tied the game up in the final seconds of the game. Tight end Foster Moreau had a touchdown in his fingertips on third-and-goal, but he could not come up with the catch. A pass to Chris Olave on fourth down was broken up, as the Jags held on for the win.

(All times Eastern)

Final: Jaguars 31, Saints 24

11:25 p.m. — Three QB kneels from Lawrence, and the Jaguars leave New Orleans with a win. Ultimately the offense for the Saints could not put things together until it was too little, too late. Jacksonville improves to 5-2, while New Orleans drops to 3-4. 

11:23 p.m. — Carr targets Olave on the outside, but Buster Brown locks up the Saints wide receiver and it falls incomplete. That’s going to do it, as the Saints come close to making an incredible comeback, but fall just short. 

11:21 p.m. — Oh, so close for Moreau. On third-and-goal, the tight end is left wide open in the back left corner, Carr finds him, but it goes off Moreau’s fingertips and incomplete. It’ll be fourth down for the Saints with 25 seconds left. 

11:19 p.m. — After an Olave catch picks up eight, Kamara rushes for four to get the Saints to the six-yard line. There’s under a minute left in regulation with the Saints down seven. 

11:17 p.m. — Kamara has been excellent tonight for the Saints, in both the passing and running game. He takes a handoff for 18 yards, giving New Orleans a first down at the Jacksonville 18-yard line. 

11:12 p.m. — Carr hits Hill for 18 yards, then tosses two dump offs to Kamara for gains of nine and seven. The two-minute warning hits with the Saints having the ball at the Jaguars’ 41-yard line.

11:12 p.m. — Touchdown! Kirk sends the SuperDome into silence, as he takes a short-yard pass from Lawrence and weaves through the Saints defense for a 44-yard touchdown.

11:06 p.m. — Just like that, the Saints are forced to punt after three plays, but the concern is Carr. As he scrambled to his right on third down, he appeared to reach for his groin after throwing the incomplete pass. He stayed down for a bit, spoke to the training staff, and eventually walked his way to the sidelines. 

11:03 p.m. — The Jaguars pick up a first down, but are stopped on three straight plays and will have to punt. I mentioned this earlier, Jacksonville let New Orleans hang around and now are paying for it. The Saints have the ball with 4:30 to go. 

Jaguars 24, Saints 24

10:57 p.m. — Touchdown! Bang-bang-TD. Carr tosses one for Thomas at the back of the end zone, and the receiver is able to stay inbounds for the score. New Orleans wasted no time at all getting down field and in the end zone. The Saints go for two, and Carr lofts one to a wide open Kamara to tie the game. After looking dead in the water, the Saints have come alive.

10:56 p.m. — Carr connects with Thomas on the first play of the drive for a gain of 17. He follows that up by finding Hill at the 18-yard line for the 19-yard reception. 

10:54 p.m. — Turnover on downs! Lawrence gives it to Etienne Jr. on a read option, but the Saints wrap up by the running back before he can get the first down. Stop me if you’ve heard me say this — the Saints’ defense is the sole reason this is remains a close game. This time, the unit sets up Carr and the offense at their own 47-yard line with 7:29 left.

10:50 p.m. — The Saints can’t catch a break. The defense stops the Jaguars on third down, but Paulson Adebo is called for pass interference, giving Jacksonville the automatic first down. The pass looked high, so Adebo felt it was uncatchable, but the officials disagree. 

10:47 p.m. — After a promising last drive, Carr and Co. get nothing generated and the drive ends in a three-and-out. Carr tried his first deep ball of the night, but it appeared Olave pulled up on the route, increasing the frustration of the Saints QB.  

10:42 p.m. — Once again, it’s the Saints defense that comes through for New Orleans. The unit gets Lawrence to scramble twice, but the Jaguars can’t come up with a first down and are forced to punt. The only reason why the Saints are still in this game is because of Allen’s defense. 

Jaguars 24, Saints 16

10:38 p.m. — Touchdown! Hill, who got the Saints near the goal line, punches it in from a yard out, thanks to an excellent block from defensive lineman Khalen Saunders. By far, the best drive of the night for New Orleans, and the offense converts on fourth down to six points. Grupe doinks the extra point off the uprights and in to make it 24-16 with 14:21 left.

10:25 p.m. — This has been by far the Saints’ best drives, and it’s been up-tempo with Carr getting the ball quickly out of his hands. 

10:17 p.m. — After the pick-six, Carr completes six passes in a row, and the Saints have made their way swiftly into Jacksonville territory. 

Jaguars 24, Saints 9

10:17 p.m. — Pick-six! The woes on the New Orleans offense continue, as Carr forces a throw on third that’s deflected up in the air and into the arms of Foye Oluokun. The Jaguars linebacker sprints all the way to the end zone, diving for the pylon. It’s getting real ugly on the Saints side, with a frustrated Carr looking completely out of sync with his weapons.

10:12 p.m. — An interesting play call for the Jaguars on third down just now. Needing six yards at their own 29, the call from the sidelines is a draw, and Etienne Jr. comes up less than a yard short of a first down. Pederson elects not to go for it, and the Jaguars will punt away. Jacksonville is playing a dangerous game, letting New Orleans stick around. 

Jaguars 17, Saints 9

10:06 p.m. — Field goal! Grupes improves to three of four on the night, booting a 42-yarder. The Saints cut into the Jags’ lead, making it a one-score content again.

10:02 p.m. — Taysom Hill hasn’t been used really at all this game, but the QB/TE hybrid keeps a read option and barrels for a gain of six yards, down to the Jacksonville 23. For the first time since the opening drive, the Saints have been able to pick up multiple first downs and drive down the field, getting close to the red zone.

End of first half: Jaguars 17, Saints 6

9:44 p.m. — Carr fumbles the ball, it’s recovered by one of his lineman, and that’s how the first half ends. A fitting end for the Saints, who could get nothing going on offense, leaving the field to boos from the New Orleans fans. 

Jaguars 17, Saints 6

9:42 p.m. — Field goal! McManus sinks his first attempt of the night, extending the Jaguars lead to 11 with just 32 seconds left in the half. Pederson’s aggression pays off, as the fake punt leads to three points. 

9:41 p.m. — Call reversed! After review, the officials deem the ball hit the ground as Lattimore was trying to make the completion, ruling the play an incomplete pass rather than an interception. With it being fourth down, McManus comes out for a field goal. 

9:38 p.m. — Interception! Marcus Lattimore comes up with a massive play for the Saints, picking off Lawrence down inside the 10-yard line with just 34 seconds to go in the half. Lawrence was looking for Agnew, but Lattimore dove in front of the receiver for the pick. The officials are going to review to see if Lattimore maintained possession, otherwise it may be an incomplete pass. 

9:36 p.m. — Fake punt! Not so fast! Pederson dips into bag of tricks and calls for the fake punt. Logan Cooke connects with Tim Jones for a 17-yard gain, and the Jaguars keep possession. That took some stones on Pederson’s part, but it pays off, giving Lawrence and the offense a chance to find the end zone before the end of the half.
