Jaguars Vs. Bengals Score Update: Jaguars Pounce First, Lead 7-0 After Jones-Drew TD

The Jacksonville Jaguars are on the board first against the visiting Cincinnati Bengals, after a six-yard touchdown run by running back Maurice Jones-Drew. Jones landed in the end zone just over five minutes into the game, at the 9:43 mark. The Jaguars scored the touchdown on the opening drive, marching the ball 80 yards downfield on 10 plays, on the strength of 42 yards from Jones-Drew and 38 yards passing from rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert.

Gabbert has looked good so far, completing 3-4 passes to this point to Mike Thomas, Jason Hill and Cecil Shorts. The Jaguars time of possession on the drive was 5:25

This is a good sign for Jacksonville, who have experienced difficulties to score the ball  in their first four games. The Jags have averaged fewer than 10 points per game and rank last out of the 32 teams in the NFL in passing yardage.

Stay tuned to SB Nation Tampa. More updates to come as they happen.
