The Cincinnati Bengals and Jacksonville Jaguars get to showcase the first overall picks from the past two drafts in Joe Burrow and Trevor Lawrence. In a rematch of the 2019 National Championship game, Cincinnati will be hoping that Burrow again prevails on top against Lawrence.
Despite the Jaguars being 0-3, they still have put up a decent fight in each of their games. The Bengals have to make sure that they don’t come out flat like they did after their Week 1 win and ultimately lost to what looks like an inferior Chicago Bears team in Week 2.
Still, it appears Burrow is finally starting to heat up as he only had four incompletions against the Steelers and Ja’Marr Chase again stretched the field for a touchdown. The two have combined for four touchdowns on the season.
Cincinnati’s defense has also been very much improved. They already have 10 sacks on the season after barely pressuring opposing quarterbacks last season. Linebacker Logan Wilson appears to be a star in a making after recording two interceptions last week that setup touchdowns. He’s now tied for the most interceptions in the league.
Meanwhile, the Jaguars are led by former-Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer. They are clearly in full rebuild mode without a win, but that only leads to desperation that makes them dangerous.
