Good morning Bengals Nation! Wake up, get out of bed, and get to work. It's Tuesday and one of the worst days has finally passed.

This Sunday the Bengals square off against the Jaguars. And in all honesty, this should be an interesting match-up. Which Bengals team is going to show up on Sunday? Are we going to see the Bengals from the second half of week four? Or are we going to see the Bengals from week three? I know I'm not alone when I say this, but obviously everyone would be in favor of seeing the Bengals from the second half of week four.

Let's be honest though, I think the defense will continue their reign of terror. Jacksonville hasn't looked like a team this season. Maurice Jones-Drew has been the lone highlight on a depleted team. Blaine Gabbert, for the most part has looked like what he is, a rookie. And I don't think that will change this week against Cincinnati. As for Luke McCown, well do I really need to say anymore?

I think the Bengals front-line will have a field day against Gabbert and company. It will be a matter of not slipping up and not letting Jones-Drew burst away on the ground. I don't see many, if any legitimate threats at wide receiver. But I'll try not to count them out just yet. Every week there could always be that surprise performer. But I just don't see it with Jacksonville. As the week progresses we will get a better idea as to what shape both teams are in for Sunday's battle of the rookie quarterbacks.

Alright here is look at what you may have missed or overlooked from Monday.
