Jaguars kicker Josh Lambo (4) walks on the field to kick off to the Arizona Cardinals in Sunday's game.

Jaguars kicker Josh Lambo did not end his slump Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. 

He did not attempt a field goal, but he missed on two of his three point-after-touchdown kicks. Lambo's attempt sailed wide left in the second quarter after Jamal Agnew's amazing 109-yard field goal return for a touchdown. In the third, Lambo's kick sailed wide right after running back James Robinson's 4-yard run that extended the Jaguars' lead to 19-10.

Lambo missed field-goal attempts of 48 and 52 yards last week against the Denver Broncos.

''On Lambo, I made that comment, man, he's the hardest working specialist I've ever had, but it's also a reality we're now missing extra points,'' Coach Urban Meyer said. ''I'm not sure what we're going to do. But I'm like everybody, I want to see him make it because he works so damn hard on it.''

Concerns about Trevor Lawrence?

Trevor Lawrence has seven interceptions after three games, including two against the Cardinals. Asked if he is concerned about Lawrence's confidence, Meyer says he worries about everything.

''But Trevor is a unique individual, and he competes like -- competed his tail off. We've just got to -- when something is not there, throw it away and one of them was not his fault,'' Meyer said. ''One of them was a dropped pass. You can't do that with a young quarterback. Can't do that. That's unacceptable. It's unacceptable with an old quarterback, but you just can't do that. It just drives me nuts. I know what he's going to be like tomorrow. Same way he was last week. He's the most consistent -- one of the most consistent players I've been around.''  

Marvin Jones extends streak

Wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. has caught at least one pass in 99 consecutive games, the sixth-longest streak in the NFL. Jones has caught at least one touchdown in three consecutive games, which is tied for the fourth-longest consecutive streak in the NFL. With a TD reception on Sunday, Jones would become the first player in Jaguars history to record a TD in each of his first three games with the team.

Sackless Sunday

The Jaguars have tallied 23 quarterback hits through three games. They came in Sunday with 22, the sixth-most in the NFL. In Week 2, the Jaguars had six different players record a quarterback hit. However, the Jaguars had only one quarterback hit against Cardinals' Kyler Murray, made by Jihad Ward.

Defensive end Josh Allen had recorded a sack in each of the Jaguars' first two games. If he had made a sack Sunday, Allen would have become the first Jaguar to record a sack in each of the first three games since 2019, when he recorded a sack in each of the first four games. The Jaguars did not register a sack Sunday.

CJ Henderson sits out

Cornerback CJ Henderson (groin, illness), CB Tre Herndon (knee), DE/OLB Jordan Smith  (knee), DL Roy Robertson-Harris and DT Jay Tufele were among the Jaguars' inactives Sunday. Former Jaguars cornerback Luq Barcoo was among the Cardinals' seven inactives. Barcoo played three games for the Jaguars last season and remained on the team until he was waived during training camp in August. 

National anthem performed by 14-year-old Keedron Bryant 

Sunday's national anthem was performed by Keedron Bryant. Bryant, 14, is a Jacksonville native and has been singing since the age of 5. He is best known for his single, “I Just Wanna Live,” which was released following the death of George Floyd in 2020.
