Cincinnati Bengals Analysis

The Cincinnati Bengals have had an unexpectedly remarkable season. Joe Burrow, their quarterback, has led their offense with an astounding 66% completion rate and 2309 passing yards, showing his mettle to lead effectively. However, his overall team performance has fallen short of his individual achievements. Joe Mixon has been an impressive force on the ground for Cincinnati with 605 rushing yards – giving them a versatile approach to offensive playmaking. Their receiving corps, led by Ja’Marr Chase with 833 receiving yards combined with dynamic playmaking abilities is another source of strength – making him a constant threat against opposing defenses.

Defensively, Cincinnati will face an immense challenge against Jacksonville Jaguars. Their current record reflects some of their difficulties containing opposing offenses and applying pressure to quarterback Blake Bortles while simultaneously covering receivers. A Bengals win lies in disrupting Jacksonville’s offensive rhythm and forcing turnovers; though Cincinnati’s defense has shown promise at times throughout this season. A consistent and focused effort must be given. 

Jacksonville Jaguars Analysis

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been an impressive surprise this season due to their incredible offensive lineup. Trevor Lawrence has been particularly impressive, boasting an astounding 68.1% completion rate and 2382 passing yards to lead their offense. Christian Kirk, with 672 receiving yards himself, provides key assistance as wide receiver. Travis Etienne Jr’s 670 rushing yards add an additional layer to their attack, creating a balanced unit capable of keeping opposing defenses guessing all season long.

On defense, Jacksonville has also been impressive. Their defense has successfully restricted opponents’ scoring opportunities and proved particularly potent at home games. Their ability to dismantle opponent offensive flows has been integral in driving their success this season. Jacksonville must focus their defense on neutralizing Cincinnati’s primary threats – Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase – while at the same time closing running lanes for Mixon. Pressuring Burrow into making hasty decisions while simultaneously closing running lanes may prove helpful in doing just this. As their secondary must provide tight coverage on Cincinnati receivers in order to prevent big plays from happening, if the Jaguars can maintain consistent defensive consistency while taking advantage of any offensive miscues from Cincinnati they stand a good chance at taking out this pivotal Week 13 matchup.
