The Jacksonville Jaguars try to pick up their second win of the season against the Cincinnati Bengals in EverBank Field.
Head coach Mike Mularkey was able to pick up his first win as the Jacksonville Jaguars head coach last Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts and hopes to be able to put together a little winning streak now that the team is beginning to get healthy once again. The Jaguars have been without two starting offensive lineman since Week 1, but both Cameron Bradfield and Eben Britton are probable for the game against the Bengals and expected to start.
The expected boost to the Jaguars pass protection should give Blaine Gabbert enough time to begin getting the team's first-round pick Justin Blackmon more involved on the offense, as well as allowing tight end Marcedes Lewis out into the passing tree instead of staying in to help block.
On the defensive side of the football the Jaguars will have their normal pair of starting cornerbacks starting once again, as Derek Cox and Rashean Mathis are both healthy and ready to go. The Jaguars defense will also get another body in the defensive end rotation with the return of Austen Lane from injury.
Kickoff Time: 4:05 p.m. ET
