Steelers WR Antonio Brown expected to play against Jaguars

  • NFL Teams That Have Yet to Win a Super Bowl

Since Ryan Shazier went on injured reserve, Williams has stepped up his game, and he will have to play a great game against Fournette if the Steelers are going to win. That's the big difference, and the main reason why Pittsburgh is favored by about a touchdown.

The Jaguars used that game to show a lot of doubters that this would be a team that could make a run at its own division title, something that Jacksonville hadn't earned since 1999 when it captured the then-AFC Central crown. He was incapable of making those plays throwing but was able to use his feet to pick up 88 yards in a sloppy win for the Jaguars.

Picking Blake Bortles and the lowly Jaguars to win a playoff game in Pittsburgh would understandably be hard for many. Pittsburgh will obviously be looking for a much different result than the last meeting of these two teams.

Bortles threw 13 interceptions during the regular season, bringing his four-season National Football League total to 64. The Jaguars must control the line of scrimmage both offensively and defensively. Campbell had the most sacks in the AFC this season with 14.5 sacks - a Jaguar record. Byard intercepted two of Bortles' passes in the regular-season finale in Nashville. "So I take the approach that I'm going to live for the here and now and play this game one game at a time, one play at a time".

"It only becomes more important". It's possible that he merely is playing rhetorical games: There's a chance, after all, that the Steelers still could play another game at home this season. "It could be another one of those games or it could be you go up there and throw it 50 times".

Hopefully, we can enjoy this weekend the same way and truly appreciate what we are watching.

Central to the Steelers' game plan is Leonard Fournette and the Jaguars' running game. Over the last seven weeks of the season, Roethlisberger threw 16 touchdowns and just four interceptions while averaging 325.5 yards per game.

"You guys ask me about the comparison to the Broncos [defense]", Jackson said. The Steelers host the Jacksonville Jaguars in a divisional playoff on Sunday. Jaguars won that memorable game at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh when Josh Scobee kicked a 25-yard field goal with 37 seconds left in the game.

Big Ben has never been one to let a single bad game continue to affect his play. The Steelers are healthy, rested, and should take care of the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Prediction: I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Jaguars found a way to win this one, but beating the Steelers twice on the road in one season is a hell of a task and that quarterback battle is quite lopsided.

Jacksonville's defense got in on the scoring mood as well by scoring on two of the five interceptions they forced Ben Roethlisberger to throw in the previous matchup.

"I'm not thinking about that right now", he said.

The Jaguars ranked first stopping the pass, but 21st against the run. The Jaguars also beat the Steelers 31-29 the last time the teams faced off in the playoffs in January 2008.

"We get to play again", Bortles said Sunday. I think both teams will do a little damage, but not enough to massively shift the tide of the game.

More often than not, one of Jalen Ramsey's least favorite activities is to stand in front of a media throng at his locker and answer even the most routine questions. Bouye to offer his response. "They got a bye week, so they're probably feeling really confident". Bortles had been much more productive through the air during a three-game stretch from December 3 through December 1, when he completed a combined 71.4 percent of his passes (65-for-91) for 903 yards with seven touchdowns and no interceptions.

Roethlisberger didn't mean it. Call it a visceral reaction to having two of his 55 passes returned the other way for game-deciding touchdowns.

-The Jaguars' first playoff appearance since 2007 is earning the Jaguars some national recognition.
