Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Cincinnati Bengals: Facts, figures, roster, schedule, series history

Florida Times-Union

ROOKIE QB WATCH

All five of the NFL Draft's first-round quarterbacks saw action in Week 3 Sunday. Trevor Lawrence lined up for the third time for the Jaguars, while Justin Fields of the Chicago Bears and Davis Mills of the Houston Texans each made their first NFL start.

Here's a look at the 10 rookie QBs and how the ones who played fared.

Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars

Clemson | Round 1, Pick 1

Lawrence and the offense sputtered through the first half, with the first four drives yielding three punts and an interception. The Jags got on the board just before the half when Lawrence threw a perfect ball to the back of the end zone that was hauled in by DJ Chark Jr., but turnovers plagued the Jaguars late in the 31-19 loss. Lawrence finished 22-for-34 for 219 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. On the season, Lawrence has 5 TDs and 7 INTs.

Jaguars running back James Robinson (25) runs with the ball after catching a short pass from Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence (16) in the fourth quarter against Arizona.

Zach Wilson, New York Jets

BYU | Round 1, Pick 2

Wilson had another tough outing as the Jets were shut out 26-0 by the resurgent Broncos. Wilson was 19-for-35 for 160 yards and two interceptions. He now has two touchdowns and seven interceptions on the season. Wilson also was sacked five more times, bringing his total to 15 in three games. 

Trey Lance, San Francisco 49ers

NDSU | Round 1, Pick 3

Lance continues to sit behind Jimmy Garoppolo, but he made his one play count in this game against the Green Bay Packers. As time expired in the first half, Lance took a 1-yard plunge for a touchdown.

Justin Fields, Chicago Bears

Ohio State | Round 1, Pick 11

In his first NFL start, Fields struggled mightily against the Cleveland Browns in a 26-6 loss. He finished 6-for-20 for 68 yards and was sacked nine times, including a franchise-record 4.5 by Myles Garrett and twice by Jadeveon Clowney. 

Mac Jones, New England Patriots

Alabama | Round 1, Pick 15

The Bolles School product had his toughest day as a pro as he threw three interceptions, two leading to Saints touchdowns in a 28-13 loss. New Orleans sacked Jones three times and hit him 11 times. He finished 30 of 51 for 270 yards and a touchdown to go with the three picks.

Davis Mills, Houston Texans

Stanford | Round 3, Pick 67

Mills had a decent outing in his first NFL start, a 24-9 loss to the Carolina Panthers. He was 19-for-28 for 168 yards and a touchdown. He was sacked four times.

Did not play: Kyle Trask (Buccaneers, round 2, pick 64), Kellen Mond (Vikings, round 3, pick 66), Ian Book (Saints, round 4, pick 133) and Sam Ehlinger (Colts, round 6, pick 218).

James Robinson picks up pace

Although he saw more carries last week against Arizona, James Robinson isn't yet on the raw yardage pace of his 2020 rookie season, when he tied for fifth in the league in rushing. But that stat doesn't tell the full story: Robinson's yards-per-carry are even higher, fourth in the NFL among qualifying running backs. Here's how last year's leading NFL rushers are faring in 2021.

Derrick Henry, Titans

Last year: 378 carries, 2,027 yards, 17 TD, 5.4 avg.

This year: 80 carries, 353 yards, 3 TD, 4.4 avg.

Dalvin Cook, Vikings

Last year: 312 carries, 1,557 yards, 16 TD, 5.0 avg.

This year: 42 carries, 192 yards, 1 TD, 4.6 avg.

Jonathan Taylor, Colts

Last year: 232 carries, 1,169 yards, 11 TD, 5.0 avg.

This year: 42 carries, 171 yards, 0 TD, 4.1 avg.

Aaron Jones, Packers

Last year: 201 carries, 1,104 yards, 9 TD, 5.5 avg.

This year: 41 carries, 158 yards, 2 TD, 3.9 avg.

David Montgomery, Bears

Last year: 247 carries, 1,070 yards, 8 TD, 4.3 avg.

This year: 46 carries, 203 yards, 1 TD, 4.4 avg.

James Robinson, Jaguars

Last year: 240 carries, 1,070 yards, 7 TD, 4.5 avg.

This year: 31 carries, 160 yards, 1 TD, 5.2 avg.

Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow (9) throws a pass as Jaguars outside linebacker Josh Allen (41) rushes during the fourth quarter of the teams' 2020 game. Cincinnati won, 33-25.

Jaguars record vs. Bengals| SERIES HISTORY

The Jags are 13-10 all-time against the Bengals, who have endured plenty of misery of their own over the decades. Jacksonville won seven of eight meetings starting in late 1996, when the teams met twice a year in the old AFC Central.

Jaguars by the numbers

.566: The Jaguars' all-time winning percentage against Cincinnati. That's second-highest in franchise history, exceeded only by the Jags' mark against the Browns.

2: Only two teams — the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (26, 1976-77) and Detroit Lions (19, 2007-09) have lost more consecutive games than the Jaguars' 18-game skid since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. 

5: The number of field goals converted by Mike Hollis against the Bengals on Dec. 1, 1996, setting a Jaguars record in a 30-27 win. That team mark has been tied four times, twice by Hollis himself and twice by Josh Scobee, but not yet broken.

28: The NFL record for interceptions by a rookie quarterback, set by Peyton Manning in 1998 with the Indianapolis Colts. Playing in a 17-game season in 2021, Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence is on pace to surpass that number.

109: The yardage of Jaguars returner Jamal Agnew's record-tying field goal return off the missed attempt of Arizona's Matt Prater last week from 68 yards (which itself would have broken a record had the kick succeeded). Agnew has touchdown returns of 102 and 109 yards in his last two games.

382: Days since the Jaguars' last NFL victory (Sept. 13, 2020 against the Colts).

JAGUARS TIME CAPSULE

The 2021 season marks the 25-year anniversary of the Jaguars' run to the 1996 AFC Championship game in their second season of existence. As the season progresses, the Times-Union will take a week-by-week look back at that campaign.

Week 4: Patriots 28, Jaguars 25 (OT) (Sept. 22, 1996)

The Jaguars met overtime, for the first time. New England, on course for the AFC title game, carved up the Jacksonville defense for a 22-0 lead. Then came the comeback: Mark Brunell connecting with a desperation pass to Jimmy Smith as the first half expired, then striking again deep to Andre Rison for two touchdowns after the break. Brunell finished 23 of 39 for 432 yards, and when he connected with Willie Jackson on a Hail Mary pass as the clock hit zero, it seemed the Jaguars' prayers were answered. Except... officials spotted Jackson shy of the goal line. The game went to overtime, and Adam Vinatieri finished off the Jags on the first drive. For Jacksonville, it was an agonizing loss in Foxborough — and it would not be the last.
