The streak is over and Jacksonville Jaguars fans can rejoice!
It wasn’t easy, but the Jacksonville Jaguars snapped their 20-game losing streak, preventing them from hitting the Tampa Bay Bucs’ streak of 26 consecutive losses from 1976-77. They did so with a Week 6 victory over the Miami Dolphins that went down to the wire, but ultimately kicker Matthew Wright was able to hit a walk-off field-goal to give the Jags a 23-20 win with on second remaining.
Of course, with Sunday providing the Jags community with its first win since Week 1 of last season, there was a lot of celebrating on Twitter. Here are just some of the many reactions from Sunday morning as the Jags got it done across the pond.
The losing streak is OVER! Thank God!

This play really was threading the needle. :05 sec left in the game to set up a field goal https://t.co/g9aVBw9NYY

Made his two longest kicks ever, basically back to back. Can't imagine how amazing that feels

#Jaguars haven't made a single FG all season and yet, just made a wild 54-yarder to tie the game at 20 with 3 minutes to go in London.

Trevor Lawrence said K Matthew Wright told him he was a software engineer a month ago, now here he is making a game-winning FG.

Wright is the first kicker in franchise history to connect on two 50-plus yard FGs in the fourth quarter.
