The Jacksonville Jaguars go for two wins in a row when they host the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday afternoon. The Jaguars broke through in Week 3 with their first win of the season, which was secured by a dramatic touchdown in the final minute of the fourth quarter.

The Bengals come into Week 4 riding a two-game winning streak, and a win over Jacksonville would pull them into a tie with the Baltimore Ravens for first place in the AFC North.

Cincinnati ranks eighth in the NFL in both total and scoring offense, so that group will a challenge for Jacksonville's defense, which ranks just 28th in total defense. While the Jaguars' offense has had its problems in 2012, Cincinnati's defense presents an opportunity to establish some rhythm. The Bengals are 29th in total defense and 31st in points allowed.

Jacksonville will be without defensive end George Selvie and linebacker Daryl Smith, but the other players listed on the injury report are expected to play. The Bengals won't have cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, and fellow cornerbacks Jason Allen and Nate Clements are doubtful.

Kickoff Time: 4:05 p.m. ET

TV: CBS
