After an incredible slate of games on Sunday, with plenty of surprising results, there's one more showdown for people to enjoy: Jaguars vs. Bengals for Monday Night Football. This will be a fun AFC battle, with Jacksonville as heavy favorites.

A few weeks ago, this was a game people had circled on their calendars, but Joe Burrow has since suffered his season-ending wrist injury. Will backup signal-caller Jake Browning be able to keep Cincinnati in this one, or will Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars run away with things?

Jaguars vs. Bengals on MNF should be a fun watch

Despite Burrow being forced to watch this one from the sidelines, there's still plenty of offensive firepower for the Bengals. The list obviously includes Ja'Marr Chase, who is considered one of the best wideouts in the game. Browning will be looking his way early and often.

The running game is also going to be a major focus, with Joe Mixon expected to get a big workload vs. the Jaguars. Mixon is a bruising back who isn't afraid to fight for extra yards. Cincy will need him to be at his best in Week 13.

On the other side of the field, the Jaguars are in the hunt to land the No. 1 seed in the AFC this winter, as they're currently 8-3 on the year. Lawrence has looked sharp in recent weeks, with Calvin Ridley being as good as advertised. What will Travis Etienne Jr. be able to do running the ball too? We're about to find out.
