Jacksonville Jaguars (2-4) at Cincinnati Bengals (0-6)

Sunday, October 20, 1PM ET

Are you ready for some Minshew Magic? We haven’t seen much of it in recent weeks as the Jacksonville Jaguars continue to struggle, but there may not be a better opportunity for Gardner Minshew to earn a win than against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7.

The Bengals are just flat-out awful this season. Although the offense has been productive yardage-wise, they fail to score as often as they should and turn the ball over too frequently. That’s nothing compared to their defense, which has been steamrolled all year long.

Look for the Jaguars to get their offense rolling in Week 7, with both Minshew and Leonard Fournette putting together some outstanding efforts. Although they’ll deserve plenty of credit for the success, it’ll be easy to pin it on Cincinnati’s putrid defense and Andy Dalton’s inability to consistently find the end zone.

It would seem as though the Bengals need to win at some point this season, right? They certainly aren’t as bad as the Miami Dolphins, but it may still be awhile before they can finally break the winless streak. Either way, it won’t happen on Sunday against the Jaguars.

Prediction: Jaguars win 20-13
