BENGALS PLAYER TO WATCH: Two-time Pro Bowler Ja’Marr Chase has six catches for 93 yards and a touchdown over the past two games, a fairly quiet stretch for one of the best receivers in the league. But his TD reception did come from backup QB Jake Browning, who will make his second career start Monday night.

JAGUARS PLAYER TO WATCH: Pass rusher Josh Allen is coming off one of his best games, a 2½-sack performance at Houston that raised his total to 12 this season and 39½ for his career. He now ranks second in franchise history after passing Yannick Ngakoue.

KEY MATCHUP: Bengals DE Trey Hendrickson versus Jaguars LT Walker Little. Hendrickson has 10½ sacks this season, including 9½ over Cincy’s past nine games, and now faces Little who is sliding over from left guard because of a knee injury to starter Cam Robinson. Little started the first four games of the season at left tackle in place of Robinson, and the Jaguars consider it his most natural position.

KEY INJURIES: Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring) returned to practice Thursday after missing the past three games. CB Cam Taylor-Britt (quadriceps) also could return after sitting out last week. ... Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (chest) missed practice Thursday, but is expected to play. CB Tyson Campbell (hamstring) is expected to return after missing four of the past five games.

SERIES NOTES: The Bengals have won two in a row and six of the past eight in the series, which started as AFC Central rivals between 1995 and 2002.
