The Cincinnati Bengals will travel this weekend to play the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday afternoon at EverBank Field.

The Jaguars are trying to even their record at 2-2 after beating the Indianapolis Colts in an absolute thriller. Trailing 16-14 in the final minute, Blaine Gabbert and Cecil Shorts connected on a 80-yard touchdown pass.

Maurice Jones-Drew has continued to prove why he's one of the top players in the NFL, rushing for 177 yards and a touchdown against the Colts. Overall, Jones-Drew ranks second in the league in rushing yards with 314, only behind Jamaal Charles.

Cincinnati is 2-1 following consecutive victories over the Cleveland Browns and Washington Redskins. The Bengals are seeking their second straight playoff appearance for the first time under head coach Marvin Lewis.

However, Cincinnati has been a sieve against the run allowing over 155 yards per game, ranking them 31st in the league. Conversely, the offense has been especially good throwing the football, averaging 291 yards through the air per contest.
