The Jaguars managed to force overtime when Brandon McManus kicked a 40-yard field goal with 26 seconds remaining to make it 31-31.

Cincinnati quarterback Jake Browning, making his second career start after Joe Burrow’s season-ending wrist injury, completed 32 of 37 passes for 354 yards and a touchdown – and also ran for a score.

McPherson had slotted a 54-yard field goal with 2:28 left in regulation time to give the visiting Bengals a 31-28 lead, before converting the decisive kick in overtime.
