With three minutes to go in last night’s game I had a few lineups with multiple outs. I needed a little more Kelce last night, but none the less onto the next one.

Tonight’s game is similar in the sense that last night nobody thought the Packers could hang with the Chiefs. However, it is different in the fact that the Jaguars are at home and have been playing their best football as of late. You are going to need a few Bengals in large tournaments and they are priced down tonight. Jake Browning has been getting ready since preseason when Burrow was first injured. The Bengals should be trailing throughout and considering the Jaguars have allowed the fewest rushing yards this season, even in lineups with Mixon it should be from Browning throwing. The Bengals are desperate for a win to keep their playoff hopes alive.

⭐ Notable News ⭐ 
  • Tyson Campbell is expected to return at corner, which will be a huge help to this Jacksonville secondary that allowed 304 passing yards and two TDs to Stroud last week.
  • The Jaguars have allowed the FEWEST rushing yards in the NFL (59.2 per game).
  • The Bengals’ defense ranks in the bottom six in the league in both passing yards and rushing yards allowed per game. Yet, they’ve done a relatively good job of keeping their opponents off the scoreboard, allowing just 22.0 points per game.
