    JACKSONVILLE [url=]Cheap Logan Paulsen Jersey[/url] , Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars never would have been able to overcome this kind of misfortune in recent years.

    Mistakes, turnovers, adversity, they had no chance.

    But with soaring confidence stemming from sustained success in all three phases, the Jaguars have seemingly found a way to deal with difficult situations. There was plenty of evidence following a 20-17 overtime victory against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.

    The Jaguars (6-3) trailed 17-14 at the two-minute warning, threw two interceptions down the stretch and still managed to eke out a win against the Chargers (3-6).

    ”If any of those things, half of those things, happen two years ago, we fold and it’s over [url=]Cheap Justin Bethel Jersey[/url] ,” quarterback Blake Bortles said. ”The guys we have in the locker room that we have now, the leadership, for guys to be able to overcome adversity, overcome mistakes, overcome turnovers and lead us and do all that is pretty impressive.”

    The Jaguars probably needed a victory such as this to take the next step in their development.

    After all, all five of their previous wins had been by 16 or more points and decided long before the closing minutes.

    ”That’s a difference between this team, honestly,” receiver Marqise Lee said. ”The last 50 seconds, I wasn’t worried. And not just me [url=]Cheap Calvin Ridley Jersey[/url] , the whole team. … That’s the biggest thing about this team is the last couple of years we would have one or two turnovers and things like that and we would shut down. This year’s a lot different.

    ”We get ourselves into situations like we did and find a way to get out.”

    The game went to overtime after a weird final two minutes of regulation that included a fumble, two interceptions, a taunting penalty and a costly flag for roughing the passer.

    Jacksonville punted to start overtime, but the Chargers gave the ball right back – along with the game.

    A.J. Bouye wrestled a deep pass away from Travis Benjamin on third down and returned it to the 2-yard line. A taunting call on cornerback Aaron Colvin pushed the Jaguars back 15 yards, but still well within Josh Lambo’s range.

    ”I just look at it like you’re trying to take food out of my daughter’s mouth,” Bouye said.

    Lambo’s 30-yarder gave the Jaguars a third straight win and ended a six-game losing streak in the series.

    ”Your true character shows when you have adversity and we had a lot of adversity today,” Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell said. ”Nothing’s going our way, but nobody blinked. We believed and we made it happen.”
