Jaguars studs from the loss to the Bengals:

No. 3 Trevor Lawrence, QB

Not everything was doom and gloom in the loss to the Bengals. In fact, the offense generally had no trouble moving the ball. Reaching the end zone on the other hand, was a tad more difficult but this wasn't by any means a bad showing by Trevor Lawrence and the rest of the offense.

Heck, before Steezy Trev left the game, he was on pace to record season bests for QB rating(125.4), the highest adjusted yards per attempt (10.28), net adjusted yards per attempt (9.16), and touchdown percentage rate of the year (6.9), h/t: John Shipley of Sports Illustrated.

No. 2: Josh Allen, OLB

Outside linebacker Josh Allen will probably tell you that he should've done more to help the Jaguars win but the truth is that there's not much else he couldn't done. On a day in which the defense forgot how to tackle, the former Kentucky Wildcat wreaked havoc in the trenches, registering 1.5 sacks, two tackles for a loss, one pass defensed, and one interception.

While the Jaguars may have trouble finishing the season strong, Josh Allen continues to solidify his case for Defensive Player of the Year honors.

No. 1: Parker Washington, WR

Losing Christian Kirk after he made a 26-yard catch on the Jaguars' first drive of the game could've been a huge blow. However, rookie Parker Washinton made sure that wasn't the case. Stepping in for Kirk, the Penn State product hauled in six receptions for 61 yards and one touchdown.

What makes Washington's performance more impressive is that this was the first time he had playing time on offense this season. He was a healthy scratch the first three games. He then spent time on Injured Reserve. and when he returned, he was mostly relegated to returning punts. Props to Washington for making the most of his chances.
