• The Jaguars lost to the Bengals on MNF

• Not having Trevor Lawrence in OT certainly hurt

No. 3: Brandon McManus, K

After failing a pair of field goals in Week 3, Brandon McManus went seventh straight games without a miss. However, his streak ended against the Tennessee Titans, going 3-of-4 in his attempts. The one he missed was from behind the 50-yard line, so you may argue that he deserves a bit of a pass.

On the other hand, it's hard to justify McManus' failed kick against the Cincinnati Bengals under 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter. At the time, the game was tied 28-28, and nailing his field goal would've changed the Bengals' strategy. They went on to score, and make it 31-28. McManus made his next attempt, but he had a chance to put Jacksonville on top with the game on the line and didn't.

No. 2 Anton Harrison, RT

All things considered, right tackle Anton Harrison had a solid outing, giving up just two total pressures but no sacks. However, he committed a holding penalty that negated a long completion to wide receiver Calvin Ridley that would've put the Jags on the Bengals' two-yard line.

Harrison's holding wasn't egregious but it was a holding nonetheless. Given that this type of penalty has been called arbitrarily, he needs to put himself in a better position not to get flagged moving forward.

No. 1: Calvin Ridley, WR

Speaking of Calvin Ridley, he had a crucial drop in the second quarter. At the time, the Jags were 14-14 and scoring a touchdown before the half would've been huge. Trevor Lawrence couldn't secure a snap, and briefly dropped the ball. He managed to pick it up and find Ridley wide open.

However, Ridley couldn't come down with the catch. On a day in which Jacksonville could've won had a few plays gone their way, the drop was discouraging.
