The Jacksonville Jaguars struggled on offense for most of the early parts of the season. But in the first half Thursday night against the Cincinnati Bengals, Trevor Lawrence and the Jags seemed to have everything clicking. 

James Robinson got the scoring going with a first-quarter touchdown after accidentally injuring receiver DJ Chark

Then after the Bengals punted for a touchback with about 12 minutes to go in the second quarter, the Jaguars put together maybe their best drive of the season.

Thanks to some read option and some quick hits, the Jaguars put together a 12-play drive that ended with a Lawrence rushing touchdown that took up 7:10.

Here's a look at the drive:

Trevor Lawrence hits Dan Arnold for 12 yards

The tight end came from the Carolina Panthers in a trade Monday for cornerback CJ Henderson.

James Robinson runs twice for 8 yards

Last year's surprise offensive star finally got unleashed in Cincinnati. 

Trevor Lawrence keeps the ball for 5 yards

The read option would be a recurring theme on this drive.

Trevor Lawrence passes to Marvin Jones for 10 yards

This is more what the Jags expected when they drafted Lawrence No. 1 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft out of Clemson. The Jags have now passed midfield.

James Robinson breaks out for 20-yard run

Robinson had 64 rushing yards at the half. These were the loudest 20 to get the Jags in scoring range.

Dare Ogunbowale runs for 1 yard

Not every play can go for 20 yards.

Trevor Lawrence passes to Chris Manhertz for 7 yards

The Jaguars' other tight end gets in on the action

Trevor Lawrence runs for 3 yards

First-and-10 from the Bengals' 14-yard line. The rookie is looking comfortable for one of the first times all season.

Trevor Lawrence passes to Luke Farrell for 7 yards

The Jaguars' OTHER other tight end takes it inside the 10.

James Robinson stuffed for no gain

Still second-and-goal from the 7.

Trevor Lawrence runs in 7-yard touchdown on read option

Poor Sam Hubbard. That's him trying to contain Lawrence on the keeper and tackling nothing but air instead.

Lawrence was 4 for 4 for 36 yards on the drive, and added three rushes for 15 yards and the score.

One possession later, Lawrence found Laviska Shenault on a 52-yard bomb.

This is the offense Jags fans have been waiting to see.
