Week 7: vs Jacksonville Jaguars

All RB vs JAX

FBG says: Good matchup. Joe Mixon is one of football's most gifted natural runners, but you'd never know it from watching him operate in this pitiful offense. Given almost no blocking help, and working with a passing game that scares no one, Mixon has yet to find any consistent running room here in 2019. He's topped 60 yards in 3 of 6 games thus far, but been held below 20 in each of the others. Even when game flow is neutral for Mixon and the winless Bengals, he's typically swarmed at the point of attack, resulting in just 3.4 yards per rush on the year. Defenses don't respect Andy Dalton's arm, and they don't have many issues collapsing the shoddy line. Backup Giovani Bernard hasn't found any room either, with just 49 ground yards (2.1 per carry) through 6 games. They'd love to have back left tackle Cordy Glenn, the team's only strong blocker, but Glenn's preseason concussion still has him sidelined. Replacement Andre Smith was lost last week to an ankle sprain, and new faces John Jerry and former first-rounder Billy Price didn't bring any noticeable improvements Sunday. Until something clicks somewhere in this offense, Mixon will continue to run into brick wall after brick wall in search of some kind of running room. The Jaguars' talented defense continues to underachieve against the run. On the year, they've allowed opposing running backs to average 5.3 yards per rush, with 4 of them topping 80 on the day. Last week, they bottled up hobbled Saints lead back Alvin Kamara, but allowed a handful of chunk runs to Latavius Murray (44 yards on 8 attempts). The Jaguars are generally strong up front, where Calais Campbell remains one of the league's most dominant linemen. But there are deficiencies up the middle and on the second level, where linebackers Myles Jack and Quincy Williams have been shaky at best. Williams may have lost his starting job for good last week, as Najee Goode showed some playmaking ability against the Saints. Still, that's not nearly enough to move the needle for this struggling unit. The Bengals' run game is stuck firmly in neutral but still projects a bit better than usual here.
