Jacksonville looked as if it might snap its losing streak when Gabbert found Jason Hill running alone behind Cincy's secondary.
Gabbert got Nelson to bite and hit Hill in stride for the 74-yarder with about eight minutes remaining. But nothing went right for Jacksonville the rest of the way.
The Jaguars forced a punt, but rookie receiver Cecil Shorts failed to field the bouncing ball at the 10. It rolled dead at the 2. That put pressure on Turk to flip the field. He failed miserably, and since he's been a problem all season, he probably will be released in a day or two.
He was booed loudly as he trudged off the field.
"You've got to make winning plays," Lewis said. "If you make losing plays here and there, it's going to add up at the end, and that's what happened today."
