The injuries couldn’t have come at a more inappropriate timing because, in more than a decade, the Jaguars got a chance to prove themselves on MNF. However, their dreams of showing off their skills on MNF might be cut short as 6 of the Jags will not be participating in the game against the Bengals.

In the last two games, Trevor Lawrence has amassed 626 passing yards and has scored 6 touchdowns. The game against the Tennessee Titans was a special one for Lawrence as he came out of the game with a 75% pass completion. The Jags are on a 2-game win streak and by the looks of it, there are high chances that the jags will convert it to a 3-game streak.
