No Ramsey. No Problem.
During this past week, Jacksonville traded star cornerback Jalen Ramsey to the Los Angeles Rams. In return, the Jaguars received three draft picks in this blockbuster trade. Entering Week 7 of the NFL, questions were raised about how the Jaguars defense would play without their feared defensive back.
Without Ramsey, the Jaguars beat the Cincinnati Bengals 27-17 to secure a much needed win.

At end of third quarter, the Bengals again retook the lead 10-9. This was courtesy of a Randy Bullock field goal with 31 seconds left in the third quarter.
Minshew Mania Continues
