Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence admitted to some jitters early on in his NFL preseason debut Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.

"The first play you're a little bit, especially first game here in the NFL, you're a little bit nervous; but after that, you're just playing ball," Lawrence said after Jacksonville's 23-13 loss, according to ESPN's Michael DiRocco. "Definitely felt that (comfort) setting in."

The 2021 first overall pick fumbled the ball after being sacked on his first play Sunday. However, he finished 6-for-9 passing for 71 yards during two first-half possessions.

"I feel like the first time out there, I felt comfortable, felt poised," Lawrence said. "Obviously, the first play's not kind of what you want for the first play, but after that, I thought we did a good job."

Lawrence also went 3-for-4 on throws in tight windows, which equaled the best completion percentage in tight windows by a Jaguars quarterback in 2020.
