The Jaguars got undressed a few weeks ago. After rattling off a five-game win streak starting with their first week in London, the San Francisco 49ers bodied Jacksonville 34-3 in Week 10. QB Trevor Lawrence played one of the worst games of his career, completing 17 of 29 passes for 185 yards and two interceptions. He was also sacked five times and lost a fumble.

In the following two weeks, Lawrence completed 67% of his passes for 626 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. Since Week 9, the Jaguars have thrown for 8.0 yards per attempt, tied for the fifth-best in the NFL. The Bengals have struggled against the pass this season, allowing 8.2 yards per dropback in that time, tied for the second-worst in the league.

Jacksonville shouldn’t have much trouble finding its way down the field, and the threat posed by the Bengals offense is gone with Burrow out for the season. Bengals backup QB Jake Browning didn’t provide much confidence throwing for 227 yards, a touchdown, and an interception against the Steelers last week.

If the passing offense can’t turn things on, Cincinnati has little to fall back on in Monday Night Football tonight. The Bengals rushing attack has been scarce all season, gaining 847 yards, the fewest in the NFL. With the Bengals fading fast, the Jaguars have the perfect opportunity to keep their lead in the AFC South intact.
