JAGUARS 26, BENGALS 21 (Final): The Bengals starting units looked in sync and rookie Alex Erickson continued to impress as a kick returner. That was the good part. The bad? Cedric Peerman broke his forearm, and Adam Jones and A.J Green both suffered what appeared to be minor injuries. At this point, they're probably ready to get back to Cincinnati and out of the preseason.

August ERAs for relievers who began the month as high-leverage options for Red Sox manager John Farrell: Matt Barnes (11.17 in 11 appearances), Fernando Abad (5.63 in 10 appearances), Junichi Tazawa (11.25 in nine appearances entering the ninth inning tonight). If Boston doesn't win the AL East or misses the playoffs entirely, the bullpen will be an enormous reason.
