CINCINNATI – Evan McPherson scored a 35-yard field goal as time ran out to give the Cincinnati Bengals a 24-21 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night, making Urban Meyer’s return in Ohio.

Joe Burrow passed for 348 yards and two touchdowns to help the Bengals (3-1) break a 14-0 halftime deficit. Burrow, the best draft pick of 2020, surpassed the top pick of 2021, Jacksonville quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

Meyer trained Ohio State for the 2014 national championship. He was born in Toledo and grew up in Ashtabula and loved the Bengals, attended college in Cincinnati, played security for the Bearcats, got his first coaching job at nearby Saint Xavier High School in 1985 and has two sisters who are still in the area.

Cincinnati had two quick scoring Drives to open the second half. James Robinson’s second dazzling touchdown brought Jacksonville (0-4) back up early in the fourth quarter. Burrow responded with a 31-yard touchdown pass to C.J. Uzomah to tie it again.

BUCCANEERS: Two trainings in Richard Sherman’s tenure as Buccaneer, the coaches of the all-pro cornerback remain cautious about how much – or if – he will play in New England on Sunday.

Sherman was one of the first defensive players on the practice field on Thursday morning. So did Jamel Dean, whose knee injury in the first quarter of the defeat against the Rams on Sunday partially accelerated the team to sign another cornerback. Defensive coordinator Todd Bowles said afterward that Dean « still has a few days to prepare, » suggesting that his pain tolerance may determine his availability against the Patriots.

« It’s early days, » Bowles said. « We still have a lot of injuries to go through and everything else, but he practices and we let him learn some things so that he can work at a high level in an emergency and » do the right things. « 

COLTS: Running back Marlon Mack told reporters that he and the team officials have reached an agreement that will allow him to find a trading partner he could get more game time with. It is the first time Mack has spoken publicly since first reported him Seeking a trade.

« It’s tough getting used to guys and things like that, » he said. « But business sometimes has to speak for yourself because that’s what you need. » </ He started out in Indy for two years and logged his first 1,000 yard season in 2019. He was expected to carry a heavier load last season until he got his right in the first half of the season opener Achilles tendon torn. Jonathan Taylor replaced Mack, became the league's top rookie rusher, and kept the job when he returned that season.

Coach Frank Reich’s original plan was to split the carries between Taylor and Mack, but Nyheim Hines moved up 2 before signing a contract extension shortly before the start of the season. And although the winless Colts struggled to play the ball against three strong defenses, Mack’s role continued to fade. He didn’t take a snapshot at the start and was inactive because of Sunday’s defeat in Tennessee.

GIANTS: New York has signed Tackle Isaiah Wilson to their practice team, which gives the former first-round draft pick another chance to tackle problems outside of the Field and make it to the NFL.

Wilson was placed 29th overall in last year’s draft by the Tennessee Titans of Georgia. He missed time with both COVID-19 and legal issues and only played three Snaps on the offensive and one on special teams. The Titans traded him and a selection from the seventh round in the 2022 draft to Miami on March 9 for a selection from the seventh round in 2021. Wilson was fired by the Dolphins 11 days later after showing up late and failing to meet the workouts he planned had appeared.
