Some playoff implications are on the line in the Week 13 edition of Monday Night Football as the Cincinnati Bengals take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. At 5-6 and 1.5 games out from a wild-card spot, the Bengals desperately need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive. Meanwhile, the Jaguars hold a game and half lead in the AFC South and a win gives them a chance to earn the top seed in the AFC.

Kickoff is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. PT and the game will air on ABC and ESPN. DraftKings Sportsbook is offering gambling lines if anyone is interested in getting some skin in the game as the spread, total and moneylines are listed below.

  • Spread: JAX -10
  • O/U: 40
  • JAX ML: -500
  • CIN ML: +380

For the injury report, the Bengals ruled cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt (quad/ankle) out and placed him on injured reserve, per NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport. Defensive tackle Jay Tufele (illness) and offensive tackle D’Ante Smith (knee) are both questionable but the rest of the active roster is good to go. As a reminder, starting quarterback Joe Burrow is on injured reserve, so Jake Browning will be under center and former Raider A.J. McCarron has been activated from the practice squad to serve as the Bengals’ backup.

The Jaguars have ruled the following players as questionable; cornerback Tyson Campbell (hamstring), running back Travis Etienne (ribs), tight end Luke Farrell (toe) and tight end Brenton Strange (foot). Everyone else on the active roster is healthy, but it is important to note that starting left tackle Cam Robinson was placed on IR last week.

As for the weather, it should be a nice night in Jacksonville with a high of 74 degrees and a low of 50, zero percent chance of rain and winds around eight MPH.
