Four key players to watch as the Jaguars take on the Bengals
After two tough losses, the Jaguars are taking on the 0-6 Cincinnati Bengals. Here are the four key players to watch during this game.
As we take a look at the four key players for the Jaguars it is important to remember the Jaguars now have two straight losses for two very different reasons.
Against the Carolina Panthers, the defense could not get a stop. Against the New Orleans Saints, the offense couldn’t score. This week look for both sides of the ball to be on the same page as the Jaguars work to come away with a victory.

This week there will be two key players on the offensive side of the football and two key players on defense. The Jags need to find their balance in order to win games consistently. After all the drama surrounding Jalen Ramsey there is one clear focus, which head of football operations Tom Coughlin addressed in the following statement after the trade:
"Given the situation with Jalen, we made this decision based on what we thought is in the best interest of the Jacksonville Jaguars, for this season and well into the future. We feel the trade that we struck with the Rams gives us great value for the next two drafts, and we remain very confident that our team today will compete this season for a division title. Jalen was a productive player, but the time came to move on and we wish him and his family the best in Los Angeles."
The playoffs are still a very real possibility and although Jalen being traded is a big blow to the team, there is still a lot of talent on the roster and there is plenty of football left to play. The Jaguars can still make the playoffs, they just need to go into every game focused and ready to play.
