AFC Divisional Sunday: Jacksonville Jaguars at Pittsburgh Steelers

AFC Divisional Sunday: Jacksonville Jaguars at Pittsburgh Steelers

With that in mind, it's imperative that Steelers offensive tackles Alejandro Villanueva and Marcus Gilbert keep them in check in order for Pittsburgh to win this game.

The Steelers haven't backed away from the issues they've had defensively this season, but sometimes it's hard to work on problems in the middle of a season when there's also concern about preparing for the next opponent.

In their first meeting against the Jacksonville Jaguars earlier this season, the Pittsburgh Steelers fell flat in a disappointing 30-9 loss. In that game, the Black & Yellow moved away from their running game headed by Le'Veon Bell, as he recorded just 47 yards on 15 carries in defeat. "I think that for our players, we do understand that it's different". But they're minus-5 in their past two games - not coincidentally both losses. This has plagued the Steeler D all year and couldn't be more evident than when Leonard Fournette ran for 181 yards including a 90 yard explosion on a power run play to seal the game late in the fourth quarter.

Yet these yinzers want another piece of that bitter Belichek and Brady pie after the officials robbed us of the No. 1 seed and home field advantage roughly a month ago. Over the last five games, he has averaged just 66.4 yards. The Jaguars defense intercepted five passes and returned two for touchdowns. So at the very least, that is why we should all respect Blake Bortles. The fact is their chances of winning this game hinge nearly completely on the way Bortles plays. In his first, Bortles passed for only 87 yards in last week' 10-3 win over Buffalo.

"When you've played in a lot of them, you still just treat it like a football game", Roethlisberger said. It's a little bit faster each game.

"It's the playoffs - you've go to do whatever it takes", Brown, the NFL's receiving yardage leader, told reporters after he completed most of Monday's session. If the ball gets held it's challenging for the quarterback to make a throw because everybody's rushing in, that's a problem. If he can be effective, it will be a big boost for a Steelers offense that relies heavily on their All-Pro receiver. He shredded the Steelers in their first matchup earlier this season, and the Steelers rushing defense has looked frankly bad since the loss of LB Ryan Shazier. He went for 157 yards on 10 receptions against the Jags in their first game when Roethlisberger looked horrendous.

A healthy core group of Steelers may not bode well for the Jags, no matter how strong their defense is. "They are going to plan their revenge for what we did to them earlier in the year". The Jaguars also beat the Steelers 31-29 the last time the teams faced off in the playoffs in January 2008.

None of these storylines, however, will have more to do with the game than how Jaguars' lightning-rod quarterback Blake Bortles performs Sunday.

Ramsey snagged his interception in front of Bills wide receiver Deonte Thompson with a tip up and diving catch that ignited the Everbank crowd. DE Yannick Ngakoue and the Rams' DT Aaron Donald are only players in National Football League with at least 10 sacks (12 for Ngakoue) and five FF (6).

I'm going to be looking to pair Fournette with the Jags D/ST as much as possible for numerous same reasons. He will go along with Le'Veon Bell, who was near the top of rushing yards in the league with 1,291 and 9 touchdowns. DE Cameron Heyward led team and tied for 3rd in AFC with career-high 12 sacks. "For me personally, I'd love to prove that five interceptions wasn't me in that game". But Bell and Brown should step up this time, leaving Jags with surprising matchup challenge for the talented Jags secondary against up-and-coming TE Vance McDonald.
