The Jaguars‘ quarterback competition is finally over. The winner is unsurprising: top overall pick Trevor Lawrence.

Head coach Urban Meyer made the announcement on Wednesday, saying Lawrence will start the Sept. 12 season opener in Houston against the Texans, as well as Sunday’s preseason finale in Dallas against the Cowboys.

“We wanted him to earn it, as we do with every position,” Meyer said. “We felt he has, after [Monday] night’s performance was — it was good, obviously not great. We didn’t run the ball very well. I kind of in my mind had that [deadline] after the second preseason [game] that we kind of have to get someone ready to play in three weeks.”

Lawrence had been alternating practice days with the first-team offense with Gardner Minshew throughout training camp but started both preseason games. He completed 20 of 32 passes for 184 yards and was sacked three times against the Cleveland Browns and New Orleans Saints. Lawrence has been pressured on 37% of his dropbacks this preseason, according to ESPN Stats & Information data.

The first-team offense has managed only three points in six drives and Meyer said Lawrence needs to change that against the Cowboys. The Jaguars have scored only four touchdowns in the two preseason games.

“I mean it’s frustrating but also we just got to stick together and keep playing,” Lawrence said. “We’re going to figure it out. I’m really confident in that. We got a bunch of guys that are that are putting the work in and we’re going to do everything it takes to get on the right track. I’m confident in that. I’m not worried. Obviously you’d like to score more points than we have for sure, but all stuff that we can build on, that we know we need to get better at, so it’s just a matter of doing it and going out there and practicing it.”

Minshew completed 17 of 29 passes for 196 yards with two interceptions (one in the end zone) in the two preseason games, and Meyer said he’s now in a competition with C.J. Beathard for the backup spot. Beathard has completed 22 of 30 passes for 223 yards and three touchdowns in the two games.
