In Sunday's game at Paul Brown Stadium (1 p.m.-Cincinnati's Channel 12), the Bengals go up against the NFL's best red-zone defense for the second straight week.
First of all, the Bengals linebackers could line up anywhere on Sunday at 1 p.m. (Cincinnati’s Channel 12) when they play the Jaguars at Paul Brown Stadium. All we know is that defensive coordinator Paul Guenther may very well have his fourth different starting combination in the eighth game.
