If you haven't seen the Jacksonville Jaguars play a game yet this season, tonight's your chance to check out a team that has quietly been one of the best squads in the AFC. The Jags have one of the league's best young QBs in Trevor Lawrence and have won seven of their last eight games to run their record to 8-3. A win tonight at home against the Joe Burrow-less Bengals would move them into a tie atop the conference alongside the Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins.

The Bengals-Jaguars game kicks off tonight at 8:15 p.m. ET (5:15 p.m. PT) on ABC and ESPN. You can flip over to ESPN2 to catch the ManningCast, with brothers Peyton and Eli calling the game, and guests popping on to chat with the NFL greats.
