Steelers back at home, ready for run-first Jaguars

Adjust Comment Print

When the Steelers (3-1) host the Jaguars (2-2) today, they have a pretty good idea of exactly what Jacksonville wants to accomplish. It will be happening at the Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It led to a Leonard Fournette 2-yard touchdown run that gave the Jaguars a 7-3 lead early in the second quarter. The defensive back returned the ball 51 yards for another defensive touchdown.

As has been the case through recent years, the issues with the Jaguars begin and end with quarterback Blake Bortles. This is easily the best defense in the Jaguars 23 year history.

Not only did he score runs but also displayed the elegance that is often a trademark of a left-handed batsman. Leg-spinner Yasir Shah was the pick of bowlers with 2-90 while Amir returned figures of 1-59.


Bryant has been one of Ben Roethlisberger's top targets this season with 10 catches for 183 yards and one touchdown. Without Bradford, the Vikings (2-2) started backup Case Keenum, who led the team to an impressive win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3. In his past six home games, he has 1,899 passing yards (316.5 per game), 19 TDs and three INTs (a 121.1 rating).

"Our defense got stops, our offense was able to maintain possession of the ball because we took care of the ball, and that allowed us to continually snap it and produce the run total", Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. Unfortunately, with the game on the line, they couldn't hold the Jets out of field goal range. So far, Bortles has thrown seven touchdowns with three interceptions, but he is completing just 54.5 percent of his passes with a quarterback rating of 81.7. On one, Fowler ran down Jets RB Bilal Powell from behind and prevented him from gaining a first down late in the game. Gipson collected his second interception of the season on a Roethlisberger pass. Gipson picked off Roethlisberger again on the next drive. Two plays in particular stood out.

The Jaguars have now forced 15 turnovers in five games - two more takeaways than they forced in the entire 2016 season. They scratched and clawed their way back into the game late in the 4th, but a Chandler Catanzaro FG crushed their efforts in the OT period as time almost expired. It was the first time a Steelers quarterback has thrown five interceptions since 1987, when Mark Malone did so in 34-10 loss to the Browns on September 20, 1987, at Cleveland's Municipal Stadium. Receiver Jaelen Strong (hamstring) and safety Jarrod Wilson (shoulder) - both reserves - also will be game-day decisions.
