The leaders of the AFC North take on the losers of the AFC South on “Thursday Night Football” this week with the Bengals (2-1) as 7.5-point favorites over the Jaguars (0-3).
Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow will compete against his former coach at Ohio State, Urban Meyer, who now leads the Jaguars. This will also be the first matchup in the NFL between the 2020 first round pick (Burrow) and the 2021 first round pick (Trevor Lawrence).
The Jaguars defense will be challenged stopping Bengals running back Joe Mixon. He ranks second in the NFL in rushing yards (286) and sixth in scrimmage yards (315). In their Week 3 matchup against the Steelers, Mixon piled up 90 yards on 18 carries. The Jaguars have allowed five touchdowns to their opposing running backs this season, the second most in the league.
In his first three games in the NFL, Lawrence has only thrown five touchdowns with seven interceptions. It’s been a struggle for the rookie quarterback so far this year with turnovers.
