Steelers Divisional Playoff Scouting Report: Jacksonville Jaguars' Defense

Steelers Divisional Playoff Scouting Report: Jacksonville Jaguars' Defense

So Tomlin kept him away from the team two days prior to the Steelers' divisional round playoff game Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Steelers finished the regular season with a 13-3 record, which gave them the AFC North division title and tied them with the New England Patriots for the best record in the conference.

"I don't go into a game feeling achy or sore", Bell said.

For the first time in a decade, the Jacksonville Jaguars find themselves in the final 8 of the NFL.

The Jaguars have lived and died on the shoulder of Blake Bortles this season and it's finally come to a head - this is likely the week that he needs to either step up, or end his team's season.

The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium said Friday that they arranged a bet with the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens.

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. It is the best defense in the league against an offense that is the best in name value. It was a weekly walkthrough routine in which players were supposed to go half-speed while practicing plays.

Dakar 2018: Spaniard Sainz wins sixth stage
I was feeling a bit exhausted in the morning as I didn't have a good sleep, so it took me a little time to get going in the stage. He finished in 11th position, his best stage yet and the second occasion that he has finished a stage in top 15.

The Jaguars lead the all-time series against the Steelers 13-11.

PREDICTION: If Roethlisberger throws five interceptions against the Jags again, he just might rekindle talk of retirement.

Blake Bortles managed to do something last week only done once before in National Football League history: win a playoff game with fewer passing yards that rushing yards. Campbell plays outside in the base defense, but often slides inside in sub packages. It's possible that he merely is playing rhetorical games: There's a chance, after all, that the Steelers still could play another game at home this season. On defense, the Jaguars combined for a pair of sacks, a pair of interceptions and a forced fumble, all while holding the Bills to just 263 yards of total offense in the game. The unit recorded 55 sacks on the season, second to only the Steelers. They want to make sure there's no way you'll want to miss it.

The Pittsburgh Steelers must capitalize on a championship window that won't be open forever, running back Le'Veon Bell said. Tuitt and starting cornerback Artie Burns suffered injuries this week that could keep them out of the game Sunday.

If you had told me at the start of the playoffs, that this would be the matchup in the divisional round and that we would get a free touchdown with Jacksonville, I would've taken it on the spot considering that the Jags have already won at Heinz Field.

Despite late-season success and a solid couple years behind him, Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has somehow become the Nickelback of the NFL. Ben Roethlisberger targeted Brown a staggering 19 times, with three of those ending up as interceptions. I think both teams will do a little damage, but not enough to massively shift the tide of the game.

The Saints hope Brees will be able to summon a repeat performance against the Vikings after making 23-of-33 passes for 376 yards last weekend, including two touchdowns.
