Fans ink support for Jaguars at 'Sack the Steelers Send-off'

Mike Mitchell says Steelers are "gonna win" if New England is AFC Championship opponent: Despite the fact that the matchup of the AFC Championship is yet to be determined, Steelers safety Mike Mitchell is sure that not only will Pittsburgh and New England meet, but that the result will fall in his favor.

Bortles comes into this game after another mediocre performance against Buffalo, in which he ran for 88 yards and only passed for 87. Their 169.9 passing yards allowed per game? The potential loss of Burns might mean Bortles could complete a pass or two. His passer rating of 84.7 was No. 20 among the quarterbacks listed in the NFL's weekly statistics release, ahead of, among others, Carson Palmer (84.4), Cam Newton (80.7), Joe Flacco (80.4), Eli Manning (80.4) and Marcus Mariota (79.3).

While Roethlisberger threw for 312 yards and Antonio Brown caught 10 passes for 157 yards in the first meeting, one of the reasons the Jaguars were able to pick off Roethlisberger five times was they stopped the run.

RUN-GAME CAPABLE: Bortles' career regular-season average of 6.32 yards per carry is the fourth-highest in National Football League history among quarterbacks with at least 200 rushing attempts (Michael Vick, 7.00, Bobby Douglass 6.47, Randall Cunningham 6.36).

The two teams have met just once in the playoffs with the Jaguars beating the Steelers 31-29 at Heinz Field on January 5, 2008.

Although the Steelers were thrashed 30-9 by the Jaguars in October, they don't appear too concerned about having to face the Jaguars again. The game he had against Jacksonville earlier this season was a fluke for the talented quarterback.

Sunday, 1:05 p.m. ET, Heinz Field, TV: CBS, Ian Eagle, Dan Fouts, Evan Washburn (field reporter). Their six yards per pass attempt allowed? Nine of Fournette's 10 touchdowns were rushing touchdowns. Due to the five interceptions in the week five matchup, the Steelers were behind and had to throw the ball 55 times.

Peterman knows this. He takes the snap with 32 seconds to go, visualizes what's going to happen in his head and tosses a lazy pass to the right that's immediately picked off by Jaguars' Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey. This prompted Jaguars fans to send the former number one overall pick trash cans which Clowney duly used to fill with gifts for the homeless. Pittsburgh K Chris Boswell has made all 15 field goals in playoffs.

In the regular-season finale against the Tennessee Titans, the Jaguars were held to 83 yards rushing. Though David Garrard was better that season than Blake Bortles is right now, the teams almost mirrored each other offensively, the 2017 Jags have the edge on defense, and they're going to need it going up against one of the most explosive and unsafe offenses in the league.

Leonard Fournette had his breakout game against the Steelers, with 181 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries. In the end, he finished the game with eight tackles and an interception. They won their playoff game last weekend at home against the Buffalo Bills, 10-3, which was their first playoff win since their last postseason appearance in 2007.

Westbrook was a fourth-round selection, while Cole and Crockett weren't drafted in 2017.

Mickens went undrafted in 2016.

Jacksonville is 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games against the AFC and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a game where they failed to cover the spread while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win.

Much of Jacksonville's burden for stopping Bell could fall to linebackers Telvin Smith and Myles Jack.
