Bengals vs. Jaguars score update: Jacksonville falls in 17-7 hole

After falling behind early in the game, with a 3-0 deficit after the first quarter, the Jaguars struck back early in the second quarter with a touchdown, but allowed a pair of scores to deepen their hole to 17-7.

Three plays into the beginning of the second quarter, Blaine Gabbert found Marcedes Lewis from 2 yards out for a touchdown that gave the Jaguars a 7-3 lead. The defense buckled down and played well in the quarter, but a fake punt that netted 48 yards for the Bengals put the Jacksonville defense on their heels.

A pass interference call in the end zone on third down gave the Bengals a first down near the goal line and they didn't spoil the opportunity, as Andy Dalton hit Chris Pressley from 1 yard out for a touchdown that gave the Bengals a 10-7 lead.

On the next drive for the Bengals, Dalton found A.J. Green on a 42-yard pass play that got the Bengals to the 1-yard line, and Dalton punctuated the drive with a quarterback sneak for a touchdown.

The Bengals will begin the second half with the ball.
