Bengals got their first win against the Jaguars 33-25. The Bengals looked good as a whole for the first time this season.
The players that showed up for the Bengals on the day were Tyler Boyd and Joe Mixon.
Joe Burrow passed the ball 36 times. He racked up 300 yards and a touchdown. Burrow also made history. 300 passing yards for the third consecutive week, that had become the first rookie to achieve this.
Tyler Boyd led the receiving core with seven receptions for 90 yards. Tee Higgins had four receptions for 77 yards. He also had a catch in the back of the end zone called back because of a holding penalty.
Joe Mixon had 30 touches, 175 total yards, and three touchdowns to cap off an amazing effort on his part.
The offensive line did a better job as they protected him better. He had more time to throw and get the ball out. He had no sacks for the first time all season. Those linesmen even assisted Mixon on that long run touchdown creating a path for Mixon by knocking down any Jaguar players in Mixon’s way.
The defensive line did better as well, giving Bengals some key stops and even sacking MInshew in the fourth quarter forcing the kick.
The players that showed up for the Jaguars on the day were Laviska Shenault Jr, Mike Jack.
Laviska Shenault Jr. had a great game. He got 80 yards before he left the game due to an injury.

The Press Conference
‘We feel a lot of momentum right now, and we’re excited about where we are. Obviously there are some things to correct, but we had a great week of practice this week, and I think that’s why we won the game,” Burrow said.
Burrow said the offensive linemen deserved some recognition for their improved play. Their play gave Mixon some space to run those long touchdown runs. “They’ve taken a lot of heat the last couple weeks, and I’m super happy for those guys to have the game they did today,” Burrow said. “They’re going to continue to build on it, I know they are.”
When asked about his rookie quarterback, Zac Taylor said. “He’s not a rookie, I don’t even think about that because it doesn’t feel like he’s a rookie and he doesn’t act like he’s a rookie. He’s in command, and guys believe in him. Those guys around him are really stepping up, and he’s becoming a real leader on this football team.”
Zac Taylor talked about them changing their strategy after half time. “We just started playing complementary football,” Taylor said. “Our offense started the half scoring, that’s a big thing for us to come out of the gate and score. And then for the defense to immediately get a stop… You get a chance to start to build that lead, that’s not something we’ve had the opportunity to do very much.”
They will now go to Baltimore next week, one of the best teams in the league.
