The Cincinnati Bengals defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday in Week 4 of NFL action. The Bengals trailed only once in this one, with the Jaguars rarely making this game interesting.

Down 17-7 going into the second half, the Jaguars inched closer toward the Bengals with an early 21-yard field goal in the third quarter by Josh Scobee. Jacksonville was down by just a touchdown with another quarter to play and within striking distance of tying or claiming the lead.

But the fourth quarter belonged to the Bengals, as they outscored the Jaguars 10-0 in that period to solidify the victory.Andy Dalton and A.J. Green hooked up for an 18-yard touchdown pass, and Mike Nugent added insurance with a 35-yard field goal just a minute later.

Also, there's this GIF of the Jaguars' mascot spiking a football, just because we know you want to see it.

Fantasy studs/duds: There were only two players in this game worth consideration for fantasy honors. A.J. Green 117 receiving yards on six catches and a touchdown. His longest reception went for 42 yards. Then, of course, there was Mike Nugent making all of his extra-point and field goal attempts.

Odds/Gambling: The Bengals covered the spread and then some. They were three-point favorites against the Jags and won by 17.

Injury info: Laurent Robinson went down again with another head injury, though it didn't appear to be as serious. But consecutive head injuries are always serious.

Next team on the schedule: Jaguars vs. Chicago Bears / Bengals vs. Miami Dolphins
