Back atop the AFC North, the Cincinnati Bengals would normally be troubled to be without a key weapon in Week 9. Then again, they don’t normally face a 1-7 Jaguars team ranked in the bottom third of nearly every offensive and defensive category. So why watch Jacksonville Jaguars vs Cincinnati Bengals live online free streaming today? Perhaps to see if Jaguars QB Blake Bortles can learn a thing or two from Bengals QB Andy Dalton.
The Bengals today will be without running back Giovani Bernard, who leads the Bengals with 446 yards and five rushing touchdowns. Bernard will sit out the game with hip and collarbone injuries. In his place will be rookie Jeremy Hill.
Hill has 195 yards and three touchdowns this season and could have a breakout game as we watch Jacksonville Jaguars vs Cincinnati Bengals live online free streaming. The Jags defense allows 115 rushing yards per game, 20th in the NFL. Last week they allowed the Dolphins to rack up 148 yards on the ground.
While Hill and Bengals QB Andy Dalton try to exploit the Jags defensive woes, Jacksonville rookie quarterback Blake Bortles will have a chance to find his rhythm as well.
Bortles has had a poor season, highlighted last Sunday by two pick-six interceptions against the Dolphins. One was an 81-yard return in the second quarter, with the other being a 22-yard pick in the third. All told he has 12 interceptions to go with his 132 completions, six TDs and 1,382 passing yards.
Dalton also has six TDs for the year, but his 57.0 QBR is 10 spots better than the Jags’ rookie, which has led him to efficiently pass for 1,641 yards through seven games.
