CINCINNATI BENGALS (3-2) JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (1-4) The Jaguars and Bengals each began the game with a long touchdown drive, and Jacksonville had two more great scoring opportunities in the second quarter, but two field goals from close range proved costly. A Dwight Lowery 30-yard interception return gave the Jaguars first-and-goal at the Cincinnati two-yard line before they were forced to settle for a field goal. The Jaguars next possession began at midfield and moved to the Bengals two after a first-and-goal at the five, but once again they were held to a Josh Scobee field goal for a 13-7 lead. The Bengals scored on Andy Dalton s second touchdown pass with 14 second remaining in the half to make it after Mike Nugent s extra point kick bounced off the right upright. Following eight combined punts by both teams to start the second half, Cincinnati took its first lead at on Nugent s 47-yard field goal in the fourth quarter despite gusting winds. Three plays later Blaine Gabbert found a broken coverage in the Cincinnati secondary and hit Jason Hill with a 74-yard catch-and-run touchdown to put Jacksonville back on top, After being pinned deep in their own territory by a Cincinnati punt, the Jaguars punted from their own six but the Bengals took over at the 23-yard line following a 22-yard punt and five-yard penalty.

6 week three review JAGUARS CLAIM FIRST WIN In a game that featured five lead changes including two in the final minute, the Jaguars claimed their first win under Mike Mularkey and owner Shad Khan with a victory in Indianapolis. Maurice Jones-Drew paced the offense with 177 rushing yards including a 59-yard touchdown run on the team s first play of the third quarter, but it was Cecil Shorts 80-yard catch-and-run touchdown with 45 seconds remaining that erased the Colts final lead. The Jaguars outscored the Colts 19 to 3 in the second half after trailing Jacksonville scored on its initial possession with a 14-play drive setting up the first of Josh Scobee s three field goals, but the Colts scored touchdowns on their first and last possessions of the first half. Indianapolis marched 74 yards in six plays to take a 7-3 lead on a 40-yard pass from Andrew Luck to T.Y. Hilton, then moved 80 yards in 14 plays to set up Luck s four-yard scoring strike to Mewelde Moore. The Jaguars 10 third-quarter points came on Jones-Drew s 59-yard run and Scobee s 47-yard field goal, which was set up by a Paul Posluszny interception, to narrow the Colts lead to entering the fourth quarter. Scobee tacked on a 26-yarder on the Jaguars first series of the quarter to take a lead. Indianapolis Adam Vinatieri missed a 36- yard field goal try with 4:45 left before nailing a 37-yarder with 56 second remaining for a Colts lead. With no timeouts remaining the Jaguars took possession at their own 20-yard line after a touchback. On the first play Gabbert hit Shorts in stride over the middle and Shorts split the Indianapolis secondary for an 80-yard touchdown. A two-point conversion attempt failed but the Jaguars held a lead with 45 seconds remaining. A 40-yard kick return to the Indianapolis 38 put Luck and the Colts in scoring position with no timeouts. On third down Luck hit Hilton with a 36-yard completion to the Jacksonville 26, but the Colts had time for just two final plays which were incomplete passes. The win marked Gabbert s first 4th-quarter comeback victory, and Jones-Drew s touchdown was the 63rd rushing touchdown of his career which broke Fred Taylor s franchise record. Additional Notes The Jaguars overcame a double-digit halftime deficit (10 points) for the first time since Dec. 12, 2010 vs. Oakland (10 points). The Jaguars had two plays of 50-plus yards in a game for the first time since Nov. 14, 2010 against Houston. LB Russell Allen paced the defense for the second straight week, finishing with 15 tackles with one for loss. LB Paul Posluszny had 11 tackles and an interception. DT Terrance Knighton had a team-high four quarterback pressures. Rookie CB Mike Harris registered a team-high three special teams tackles. LB Kyle Bosworth and S Chris Prosinski added two stops. The Jaguars won their third straight game against Indianapolis and four of the last five games in the series.
