Jacksonville Jaguars Daily: Team overcomes adversity, dominate Bengals

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville Jaguars overcome adversity, dominate the visiting Cincinnati Bengals - ESPN.com
The Jacksonville Jaguars' best offensive player was deactivated because of a violation of a team rule.

They didn't have one of their starting offensive linemen because of an injury, and their best offensive lineman aggravated an ankle injury.

They lost their best defensive player -- and arguably their best overall player -- because he was ejected for fighting.

Yet the Jaguars still beat the Cincinnati Bengals 23-7 at EverBank Field on Sunday afternoon.

Referee Brad Allen explains why he ejected Jalen Ramsey - BigCatCountry.com
We’ve all seen the Jalen Ramsey vs. A.J. Green fight. Obviously Green, who threw punches and choke slammed Ramsey from behind, should have been ejected. But why was Ramsey? Why wasn’t he called for a simple unsportsmanlike penalty for 15 yards?

Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union interviewed referee Brad Allen after the game and Allen explained his reasoning which is... a bit fishy.

Jacksonville Jaguars allow season-low 148 yards in win over Cincinnati Bengals - NYDailyNews.com
As offensively inept as the Cincinnati Bengals were to start the season, they were even worse Sunday at Jacksonville.

The Bengals finished with a season-low 148 yards in a 23-7 loss that showed — again — just how dominant the Jaguars (5-3) can be.

The game will be remembered more for a fight between receiver A.J. Green and cornerback Jalen Ramsey. But Cincinnati's offense was the one that really got whipped.
