There were dramatic finishes and displays of incredible football all over the NFL today.
There was also a game in Jacksonville.
The Bengals did what a (relatively) good team should do to a (relatively) bad one, thumping the Jaguars 27-10.
They did it efficiently, with Andy Dalton throwing for 244 yards and two touchdowns, A.J. Green catching six passes for 117 yards and a touchdown their defense limiting the Jags to 212 total yards.
Jags quarterback Blaine Gabbert threw his first interception of the year (against five touchdowns), but his problem isn’t the picks he’s not throwing, it’s the plays he’s not making.
He averaged just under 5.5 yards per pass attempt, and even though Justin Blackmon stepped in and had a better day (six catches for 48 yards, everything’s relative), the Jaguars play as if they know they don’t have much of a chance and just want to keep it close.
