Monday Night Football thread: Trevor Lawrence and the Jags take on the Bengals

Both teams are pretty beat up heading into this matchup

A pair of teams the 49ers have played earlier this season will play on Monday Night. The Cincinnati Bengals, the lone team this season to outplay the Niners are on the road to face the Jacksonville Jaguars, a team who caught San Francisco at the worst possible time.

We haven’t seen the Bengals as a big underdog in recent years thanks to the superb play from Joe Burrow. But it’s Jake Browning under center tonight, which is why the total is low at 41 points and the spread is high at ten on DraftKings Sportsbook.

This will be Browning’s third appearance. Against the Steelers a week ago, Cincy could only muster ten points. But they get Tee Higgins back tonight, which should help Browning and Ja’Marr Chase.

The Jaguars are in the hunt for the top seed in the AFC. They’re currently tied with Miami and Baltimore in the Loss column, and have fewer conference losses than the Ravens.

I think we’ll see a productive night from Trevor Lawrence as he’s able to connect with Calvin Ridley and Christian Kirk for a comfortable win against a backup quarterback. 27-14, Jags.
