Joe Burrow engineered the drive that set up Evan McPherson to kick the game-winning field goal for the Cincinnati Bengals to defeat the Jacksonville Jaguars, 24-21, on Thursday night.

Burrow needed nine plays to get the Bengals in position. Burrow had a 12-yard pass to Tyler Boyd to start the drive and later a 25-yard pass to tight end C.J. Uzomah got Cincinnati close and McPherson would kick the 35-yard field goal for his second game-winning boot of the season.

The Jaguars get handed their fourth consecutive loss of the season. The team has 19 consecutive losses dating back to last season. The team has won a game since Sept. 13, 2020, against the Indianapolis Colts.

It’s not for the lack of trying.

Trevor Lawrence was 17-for-24 with 204 passing yards and a rushing touchdown. James Robinson led the team on the ground with 78 yards on 18 carries and two touchdowns.

Laviska Shenault Jr. had six catches for 99 yards. He was targeted seven times.
