The Jacksonville Jaguars (1-2) will host the Cincinnati Bengals (2-1) on Sunday afternoon. Last Sunday, the Jaguars went on the road and won their first game under new team owner Shahid Khan and head coach Mike Mularkey, in a thrilling 22-17 win that saw Blaine Gabbert connect with receiver Cecil Shorts for an 80-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter. This afternoon, the Jaguars face a Bengals team that has won two games in a row, scoring at least 34 points in of those games. It will be a challenge for a Jaguars defense that is getting healthy.

It's not just another game today. It's also the day that former Jaguars running back Fred Taylor will be inducted into the 'Pride of the Jaguars,' joining Tony Boselli and Wayne & Delores Weaver. Arguably the greatest player in the history of this franchise, Taylor was drafted by the Jaguars ninth overall in the 1998 NFL Draft. Over the course of his career, Taylor rushed for 11,695 yards with 66 touchdowns on the ground.

On the injury front, the Jaguars are getting healthier, with offensive linemen Cameron Bradfield and Eben Britton likely to play, allowing Blaine Gabbert to have his entire starting offensive line for the first time since Week 1. Also listed as probable are RB Rashad Jennings and DE Austen Lane, who will see his first regular season action of the year. The only players that have been ruled out for today's game are LB Daryl Smith and DE George Selvie.

For the Bengals, they're hurting at the corner position, with Dre Kirkpatrick out, Leon Hall listed as 'questionable', and both Jason Allen and Nate Clements listed as 'doubtful.' Hopefully, the Jaguars will open up the passing game today against the decimated Cincinnati secondary.

Kickoff is set for 4:05 pm EST on CBS at Everbank Field in Jacksonville. Next week, the Jaguars will host Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears, before heading into the Bye Week.
