The Bengals hope to continue their streak of playing well at home and not losing (damn tie). This week they face the Jaguars of Jacksonville that come in boasting a 1 and 7 record. On paper this seems to be a game the Bengals should win with no issue. However, this is the NFL and week to week, anything can happen. Let's look into what Tecmo thinks the outcome will be.
The Jaguars start with the ball and begin to move into Bengals territory. However, on a short completion, the receiver coughs up the football and the Bengals recover.
The Bengals easily move the ball on the backs of Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard. Gio gets the final carry and scores a touchdown.
At the end of the first, the Bengals lead 7 - 0.
Blake Bortles struggles to get any offense and the Jaguars are forced to punt the ball back to Cincinnati.
Once again Bernard breaks free and gets his second touchdown of the game.
The Bengals defines plays tough as Carlos Dunlap brings Bortles down for a sack.
The Jags offense stalls and they are forced to a field goal try.
At the end of the first half, the Bengals lead 14 - 3.
A few miscues from the Bengals offense forces them to punt their first possession of the second half to the Jaguars.
No worries though as the combination of Jacksonville's poor offense and the Bengals stout D has the ball being punted back to the Bengals.
Mohamed Sanu becomes the focus on this drive as he pulls in a clutch third down pass to extend the drive.
At the end of the third, the Bengals lead 14 - 3.
Sanu is rewarded in the 4th with a touchdown catch of his own.
With not much time left, the Jags force a pass that is picked off by Leon Hall.
The Bengals make it hurt on the first play as Andy Dalton connects with everyone's favorite tight end, Jermaine Gresham for the score.
Bang, the final gun sounds and the Bengals find themselves on top by a score of 28 - 3.
