AFC Divisional Round Preview: Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

12 Janvier 2018

"I've had season tickets the whole time and this will be my first time going to an away game, and a playoff game at that", Odom said. Will they be able to play in the cold weather? They're in our way and we're in their way. "When the game is on the line, we can't give up anything".

Jacksonville has the best pass defense in the National Football League; a fact Ben Roethlisberger knows all too well after being intercepted by them five times in Week Five. "We just played to win".

Jacksonville needs far better passing from Blake Bortles.

Against the Steelers in week five, Ramsey played a huge role, intercepting Roethlisberger once and getting seven tackles, while Campbell had four tackles and four quarterback hits.

Bell proved to be a clutch playoff performer in his first postseason exposure past year, rushing for 167 and 170 yards against the Dolphins and Chiefs. Don't overthink this one: the Tom Brady and Belichick era won't end with a Divisional Round loss to the Titans.

A groin injury that required offseason surgery forced him to exit the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots early.

While Boswell doesn't get to keep up with Rice football as much as he'd like-Steelers' Saturdays are reserved for travel and meetings-the former Owl spoke to the Houston Chronicle about his time at Rice and how he approaches his craft. But the Jaguars' mindset entering Sunday isn't about August, nor should it be. "I think that speaks for themselves". "I can't complain. I like where I am".

"I don't go into a game feeling achy or sore", Bell said. He is going to get some work in on the ground. The one thing that will stand out to me is how quiet it got right after the kick went in. That mark has fallen to 4.8 per rush in the last three games. Two weeks later, the Jaguars went to London and beat the Baltimore Ravens 44-7, forcing Joe Flacco to post a 12.0 passer rating and have maybe the worst performance of any quarterback this season.

Just like that, Fournette and the Jaguars arrived, making the Steelers believers in the process. "So hopefully we can use that experience to my advantage".

They think they're already great, and they walk around that way.

It is the second time this season the Jaguars are traveling to Heinz Field to battle the Steelers. The Steelers finished 8th with 25.3 points per game.

And Bell isn't afraid to speak his mind to make sure Pittsburgh's season ends in Minneapolis next month. Both Smith and Posluszny missed the Jaguars Wednesday practice. "Just get him to step up in the pocket, we can chase him down then". He's probably not going to do anything on the field to do it either, which should make any outside noise the afterthought Bortles suggests it is as he heads into the biggest game of his professional career. "Just seeing Shay around feels good. We're going to come home with the win", Mendenhall said. He can come and show his face at any time and guys will show that love. "With that number at $19 million, I can't imagine Jacksonville paying him that kind of money".

Shazier did not speak with reporters.

But Jacksonville has been in this position before, in 2007, and in turn became the only non-AFC North team to ever win twice at Heinz Field in a season. His volume of throws might be smaller than most quarterbacks, but to me if the Jaguars have any shot at winning this game it will have to be a narrow win. His first playoff start didn't go very well.
