The Cincinnati Bengals are 2-1 through their first three games and now head into their first (and to this point, only) primetime game of the season. It’ll come against the Jacksonville Jaguars, who are searching for their first win of the Trevor Lawrence era.
This should be a fun game between two teams who picked in the top five last year. The Bengals are the better team on paper but never doubt a winless team looking to play spoiler. The Jaguars could certainly make this a closer game than what Cincy fans are expecting.

Bengals vs Jaguars Prediction Week 4
When was the last time Cincinnati were such heavy favorites in a primetime game? Heck — When was the last time the Bengals were heavy favorites at all?
Cincy looked good against the Steelers in all facets of the game so it’s not a shock to see them be favored by a touchdown over a winless Jags squad with a rookie quarterback.
Trevor Lawrence had never lost a regular-season game in his high school or college career and has now tripled that score. It’s not all his fault, as Jacksonville isn’t exactly ripe with talent, but this is a team that is struggling to find their identity for sure.
The Bengals should be able to win this one, especially with the huge win over Pittsburgh amping up the fans ahead of a primetime showdown. We predict it’ll be a 28-20 victory for the good guys in stripes.
