After a breakout season in 2022, the Jacksonville Jaguars are still trying to hit their stride this year. Jacksonville had a solid performance in Week 1, dropping 31 points in a win over the Indianapolis Colts. Since then, the team’s offense has not looked strong, resulting in two straight losses.

Maybe some home cooking can get the Jags back on track. No, they’re not technically the London Jaguars, but the team has plenty of experience playing games in Europe. Week 4 will be the 10th time the team has played in London. Maybe that’s all they need to get back on track.

However, the Atlanta Falcons should prove to be a difficult opponent. Led by rookie Bijan Robinson, Tyler Allgaier and a great offensive line, the Falcons’ running attack is among the best in the NFL. Robinson has already impressed NFL fans in the United States. Now, he will get a chance to appear on the world stage.

Follow along as Yahoo Sports provides the latest scores, stats and injuries as the Jaguars take on the Falcons in London in Week 4.

The Falcons show some life to start the second half

Atlanta was on the verge of letting the game get out of hand heading into the third quarter. Bijan Robinson went 38 yards and six plays later Desmond Reeder hit Drake London for a much-needed touchdown to cut the Jaguars’ lead to 17-7.

The Jaguars defense hands over an overwhelming pick — 6 — and then adds another smart pick

Desmond Reeder was driving the Falcons down the field, looking to cut into Jacksonville’s lead before the second-year QB threw an interception to Darius Williams, who returned the ball 61 yards for a score and a 17-0 Jaguars lead.

On the next drive, Rader made another unfortunate decision, allowing Andre Sisko to pick him off and put the Jaguars’ offense on top. Atlanta’s defense held Jacksonville down, forcing a turnover in the red zone.

Bijan Robinson is a human highlight reel

The No. 8 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft appears across the pond — with his legs and his hands.

First, he invited fullback Chad Muma to return to the United States with the move.

Then, he applied for the catch of the day with this complete one-handed snag.
