Big Ben not thinking about future as Jags loom

SA man threatened mass shooting at NFL playoff game, affidavit says

Steelers' safety Mike Mitchell guaranteed a victory over the Patriots in the playoffs before the postseason even began.

Jacksonville is 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games against the AFC and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a game where they failed to cover the spread while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win. They also became the first and only team to beat the Steelers twice at home in one season, as they beat the Steelers in the 2007 regular season as well. Tuitt and starting cornerback Artie Burns suffered injuries this week that could keep them out of the game Sunday.

Roethlisberger flirted with retirement at the end of last season, only deciding to return after discussions with his family. During that span, Roethlisberger was a top-five fantasy quarterback, with three separate 30-plus point performances against Tennessee, Green Bay, and Baltimore. "I am grateful to be in the situation we are in". Bortles and Roethlisberger have done a decent job of protecting the ball this season. Five interceptions were franchise-record for single game. He had 101 catches for 1,533 yards and nine touchdowns.

The defense, as it has all season for Jacksonville, opened up opportunities that the offense took advantage.

Although the Falcons played well against the Rams and limited second-year quarterback Jared Goff to 259 yards and a score in the Wild Card round, they did finish the season allowing the 15th-most points to opposing quarterbacks.

Roethlisberger didn't mean it. Call it a visceral reaction to having two of his 55 passes returned the other way for game-deciding touchdowns. The AFC South champions return to Pittsburgh Sunday afternoon, hoping to pull off yet another upset, this time in the 2018 National Football League playoffs. He may finish third and at least warrant a nice montage at the NFL Honors ceremony in February, but the second half of the first-rounder's season did not match what preceded it.

The Jaguars lead the all-time series against the Steelers 13-11. Both teams would travel to New England or both teams would host the Titans.

He will have his hands full this weekend playing against Calais Campbell. Neither of those things are likely to happen again Sunday.

"I'm going go out and play this one and give everything I have", he added. The Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Pittsburgh Steelers earlier in the season. Although Bortles had the best regular season in his career, in which he threw only 13 interceptions and completed 60 percent of his passes, he has played badly in his last two games of the season.

"It's who we are", Bortles said. Taking away the running game and forcing Borltes to throw is the key to victory for the Steelers. The two had been yapping back and forth all game and Fournette just got exhausted of hearing it, so when he broke free after stiff-arming linebacker on a fourth-quarter run off right tackle, he sought out Mitchell. And that pass rush is what led to Roethlisberger forcing hurried passes that were just off-target enough to be intercepted or tipped into picks last time. The Jaguars have the defense to stifle Big Ben and the Steelers' offense.

Why it's important: The Jaguars need to get more production from the receiver position after Hurns, Marqise Lee and Keelan Cole were shut out in last week's win over Buffalo (one target apiece).
