Bengals Deny Jags First Win On Last-Second Kick

Jonathan Grant | October 1st, 2021

Urban Meyer was close to his first win as head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. But close doesn’t count in sports, especially at the professional level, as the Cincinnati Bengals denied them with a field goal kicked in the last seconds of the contest to win it 24-21 on Thursday night. The hosts improved to 3-1 despite falling 14-0 behind and trailing by that same score at the half to a team that is now 0-4.

Cincy Jungle

The visiting Jags got a solid performance out of rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence, but Cincy QB Joe Burrow was the real standout in the outing. He threw for 348 yards and two touchdowns as he completed 25 of 32 passes. After coming back with two TD’s in the third to tie the game, the Bengals again fell behind early in the fourth before responding to tie with just under nine minutes to go. Burrow found CJ Uzomah that time, and he would then lead his team down the field to set up Evan McPherson to win it with no time on the board. Uzomah, by the way, caught both of Burrow’s TD throws while the former LSU man found Tyler Boyd nine times for 118 yards. The quest for Meyer and co’s first win will continue on while the Bengals might be a sleeper pick in the AFC.
