Steelers' Explosive Passing Game Will Test Jaguars' Vaunted Secondary

At the beginning of the NFL season the Kansas City Chiefs were ranked with this season’s most elite teams

The veteran gunslinger also questioned whether he still had the ability to deliver at the highest level earlier this season following a disastrous display in a 30-9 loss to the Jaguars on October 8. Could they be in the running for prospective free agent Kirk Cousins, assuming he is not franchise-tagged again by the Redskins?

Jacksonville boasts the top passing defense in the National Football League and created 33 turnovers, which was second only to the Baltimore Ravens. Stil, the Jaguars are a team that is going to want to run and stuff fullbacks and tight ends on the field. They are, by far, the more experienced side: 14 Patriots players have played at least 10 playoff games. He somehow managed to have more rushing yards, with 88, than passing yards, with 87, in a 10-3 triumph Sunday over the Buffalo Bills in the opening round of the playoffs. Foles does not possess a high floor that I typically target in cash games, but his upside and cheap salary makes him attractive in GPPs. He bounced back from that awful performance to go on an eight game win streak finishing 12-3 as a starter this year. That- that game was so bad he was talking about retirement after that game.

The fourth-year quarterback outdid his miserable 2016 season, but the Jags still can not count on him in big spots.

Linebacker Blair Brown and wide receiver Jaydon Mickens are both listed as questionable.

"It's always different because every year's different, every opponent's different", Roethlisberger said.

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.

Not only is that explanation logical, we also got to here "Blake Bortles" and "LeBron James" in the same sentence.

Florida plagued by herpes-riddled monkeys that can kill humans
They draw people to the state's parks and have become notorious for their interactions with humans. A rhesus monkey on the loose in Pinellas County for more than two years was caught in October 2012.

Brown was a limited participant during the final practice of the week. Although three of those showings came against non-playoff contenders - the December 49ers kind of doubled as one, however - Bortles sliced up the (admittedly injury-riddled) Seahawks in a 268-yard, two-touchdown day that would be lethal on Sunday if the Jags' defense could be staked to this kind of an outing.

The No. 4 pick has averaged more than four yards per carry just once in his past eight games, including a 21-carry, 57-yard outing against Buffalo. Wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey jokingly gave credit to the beard Roethlisberger began growing in the aftermath of one of the most forgettable performances of his career. Ben finished as a top quarterback being fifth in passing yards and tied for fifth in passing touchdowns.

Leonard Fournette vs. Steelers Front Seven: Fournette had his best game as a professional vs. the Steelers in week five, 181 yards and two touchdowns.

To combat the fearsome Jacksonville pass defense, the Steelers will need to lean on first team All-Pro running back Le'Veon Bell.

Jacksonville's defense held LeSean McCoy with a banged up wheel to 75 yards on 19 carries. So Fournette could be a big factor.

According to Mande, a team official has informed him that Bortles is "aware" of the jokes that The Good Place cracks at his expense, and that the Jaguars have had a "great sense of humor about it", even inviting Mande and Jacinto to Jacksonville for last week's playoff game. That won't be good enough this week.

"Everything is a concern when you want to play better, when you don't play well", Marrone said.
