Despite the matchup coming from two of the worst teams in 2020, this figures to be one of the more exciting “Thursday Night Football” matchups of the year, solely for the two names under center for the two teams. Joe Burrow has put the Bengals in a promising position early in the season with a 2-1 record, including a recent win against the Steelers. Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars haven’t found quite the same level of success, however, as they are 0-3 and Lawrence has more interceptions than touchdowns.

Still, the game’s two most recent No. 1 overall picks have some recent history that make this one to watch. Burrow and LSU won the 2019 national championship in a 42-25 win against Lawrence and Clemson in a showdown of two of college football’s most dynamic offenses.

Below is everything to know about the TV schedule for the Bengals vs. Jaguars Week 4 opener, plus a look at the rest of the NFL schedule for the week.
