ABOUT THE JAGUARS (4-3): Jacksonville beat that same Colts team 27-0 before its bye and will blanket Green with a passing defense that leads the National Football League, surrendering an average of just 162 yards.

Bengals Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green was ejected from Sunday's game after his role in a fight with a Jaguars' defensive back.

After Ramsey pushed Green to the field, the star receiver decided he'd had enough and jumped on the Jaguars player's back, putting him in a chokehold.

The moment that will have the league talking occurred late in the first half.

Both players received personal foul penalties and were ejected.

Without Fournette available, Ivory stepped up and carried the load and most pleasantly for Jaguars fans Blake Bortles had a strong first half. They gave up just 118 yards in the 1st half.

ABOUT THE BENGALS (3-4): Cincinnati pulled out a win in three of its last four games after dropping three in a row to start the season, and a stretch of three consecutive games on the road beginning Sunday could decide the team's playoff fate.

Bortles didn't see a wide-open Keelan Cole for a possible touchdown on one play and missed a throw to an open Marcedes Lewis on another but came back with a solid throw to Ivory for 14 yards to help set up the strike to Lee. The Jaguars converted 12 of 18 third downs.

Joe Mixon scored a 7-yard touchdown on a run to the right to cut the Jaguars' lead to 10-7 in the second quarter. Robinson sprained his left ankle during the second play against the Colts and has been slowed all week.
