JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Andy Dalton threw two touchdown passes, Bernard Scott scored with 1:56 remaining and the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 30-20 Sunday.

The Bengals (3-2) took advantage of Matt Turk's 22-yard punt into the wind to set up the winning score, a touchdown needed because Mike Nugent missed an extra point in the first half.

Dalton hooked up with Jermaine Gresham on a fourth-and-6 play to keep the short drive alive, then found Andre Caldwell for an 8-yard gain.

With the Jaguars (1-4) expecting a pass on third down, Dalton handed to Scott, who weaved his way into the end zone to make it 23-20.

Jacksonville had a chance to tie, but Blaine Gabbert fumbled a bad snap and the Bengals ended up with the ball. Cincinnati also scored on a fumble return on the final play.

The Jaguars have lost four in a row, and seven of eight dating to last season, putting coach Jack Del Rio's future further in doubt.
