Steelers vs Jaguars Time TV schedule and playoff game information

"He knows that we're going to go out there and try and make plays for him". All four games this week offer good team stacking options from both sides (yes, even the Jags), as well as some intriguing game stacks for NFL DFS contest. The Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Pittsburgh Steelers earlier in the season. Bortles threw for only 87 yards in the Jaguars' 10-3 victory. In fact, the two AFC divisional round games are the only two games with consensus predictions now, with every expert planning for a Steelers vs. Patriots AFC championship game.

Offensively, the Steelers are averaging 25.4 points and 377.9 total yards (273.8 in passing and 104.2 in rushing) per game.

"The energy in the stadium was outstanding; better than what coach Tom Coughlin said it would be", said Jaguars coach Doug Marrone.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are happy to be at home for this game, but know they will have a tough time if they are forced to go on the road next week.

Despite playing in just 13 full games in the regular season, Brown was named to his fourth straight Associated Press All-Pro first team this week.

The Steelers will need to be able to run the ball against the Jaguars to be successful. Ben Roethlisberger completed 64.2 percent of his passes for 4,251 yards and 28 touchdowns against 14 interceptions. And then there's was Le'Veon Bell being held to only 53 yards rushing in the Week 6 game.

Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell only rushed for 47 yards against the Jaguars in Week 5. He went for 157 yards on 10 receptions against the Jags in their first game when Roethlisberger looked horrendous. We sort of assumed, taking our best guess, that they would win this game last Sunday. They can not let the Jaguars sustain drives even they don't all turn into points. The losses for Jacksonville saw them allow 37, 23, 27, 27, 44 and 15 points. "I'm going to go out and play this one and give everything I have".

This season had the makings to be Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's swan song in the NFL. Cole finished with 748 receiving yards. Not to say you can't play or can't perform well. "We want to minimize the ways that they run the ball and the ways that they possess the ball and control the game". Look for Pittsburgh to have a few wrinkles to their offense that the Jaguars did not see last time. Bell must be contained all game long. The Jaguars offense has to find the end zone early and often by any means necessary to win. Jacksonville will have high hopes for next season after their playoff run this season.

It won't be easy, but the Steelers aren't expecting anything to be the rest of the way.
