Wright’s timely FG ends Jaguars’ skid


Matthew Wright, a software engineer turned kicker, booted a 53-yard field goal as time expired and the Jacksonvil­le Jaguars ended a 20-game losing skid with a 23-20 win over the Miami Dolphins at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. “I don’t think anybody on our team ever heard him speak until about 10 minutes ago,” Jaguars coach Urban Meyer said post-game about Wright, who also kicked a 54-yarder minutes earlier to tie the game. Said quarterbac­k Trevor Lawrence: “Just crazy, you can’t even make it up.”
