BENGALS 14, JAGUARS 3 (halftime): What a mess for the Jaguars. The offense managed just 12 yards and turned the ball over in the first quarter. C Brandon Linder had two false start penalties. LT/LG Luke Joeckel spent a good part o his night going backwards. The defense allowed the Bengals to go on a nine-minute drive and CB Prince Amukamara was penalized for pass interference in the end zone. It was an embarrassing performance all around on national TV.

HALFTIME: Bengals 14, Jaguars 3. The Bengals would normally be happy about how their starters performed in the first half, but with injuries to three of their Pro Bowlers, they were probably just happy to get to the locker room. Adam Jones, A.J. Green and Cedric Peerman all left with injuries, with Peerman appearing to sustain a serious arm injury.

Now Cedric Peerman is being looked at by trainers on the sideline, who are fitting him with an air cast on his left arm. He looks very distrust hot. Just that kind of night.

A.J Green banged up his right knee and they're taking him out of the game as a precaution, according to the team. Would be probable if there was a regular season game next week (and if that designation that still existed).

DeAndre Hopkins on getting to meet Olympic gold medalist Simone Manuel before the game: "Oh, it was great. Me and somebody who represents out country in the way she does, and what she's accomplished so far in her career. I'm pretty sure she has a lot more in store, though."

Looks like A.J Green is done for the night. Does not have his helmet as the offense goes back on the field. He's walking around win no sign of distress or a limp however after limping off earlier.

A.J Green limped off the field. A trainer is looking at his lower right leg on the bench.

Great start for the Bengals. In two plays, they turn a fumble recovery into a touchdown. Great block by Boling to set up a touchdown to Bernard. Bengals 7, Jaguars 0.
