Jacksonville, FL (Sports Network) - Andy Dalton threw two touchdowns passes and scored another on the ground, as the Cincinnati Bengals defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars, 27-10, for their third consecutive win.

Dalton completed 20-of-31 passes for 244 yards. He overcame an early interception to help the Bengals (3-1) keep pace with the Baltimore Ravens for first place in the AFC North.

A.J. Green hauled in six passes for 117 yards and scored a touchdown for the third consecutive game. Chris Pressley also caught a touchdown and Mike Nugent converted on both of his field goal attempts for the Bengals, who are off to their best start since 2009.

The Jaguars (1-3) stayed within striking distance for the first three quarters, but Blaine Gabbert's fourth quarter interception led to a Bengals field goal, which made it a three-score game.

Gabbert finished 23-of-34 for 186 yards and a touchdown and rookie Justin Blackmon caught a career-high six passes for 48 yards. Maurice Jones-Drew struggled for 38 yards on 13 carries, but had five receptions for 42 yards in the defeat.
