Big Ben threw five interceptions and two were returned for touchdowns. Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram were held to just 68 combined yards from scrimmage in a wild-card win over the Carolina Panthers thanks in part to an athletic linebacking corps that prevented the Pro Bowl duo from turning the corner and finding open-field space. The Jaguars have listed just two players, linebacker Blair Brown and wide receiver Jaydon Mickens, on the injury report.
The Jaguars have defied expectations to get to Pittsburgh on Sunday. That would net him 6.0 FanDuel points.
The Jags take on the Steelers in Pittsburgh, Sunday at 1:05 p.m.
"Just get the numbers straight, exactly where we want them".
Bortles had the Jaguars looking formidable in December, however, and in position to threaten the Patriots or Steelers for bye privileges. They also flashed different blitzes, but according to the ESPN Stats & Information Group, they only blitzed once.
The Jaguars are huge, physical, and have tremendous defensive backs.
- Fournette, Ivory, they can run the football.
LeBron James says Cavaliers are 'fragile' after back-to-back blowout losses
The Pacers used a timeout after the quick 7-0 spurt. "But once playoffs do start, teams can load up, they can game plan for you". A review showed James shoving Stephenson in the chest, though TV replays showed Stephenson driving his thumb into James' side.
The Good Place is now airing its second season, with new episodes on Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. EST on NBC. Down 7-3 with 1:20 still on the clock, they still had plenty of time to score before heading into the locker room. But at the snap, only the four down linemen actually rush; the Jaguars drop back seven players into coverage. While Jacksonville is very talented on defense they faced the Steelers during a time when the offense was not on point.
When the Jacksonville Jaguars' defense takes the field Sunday they will have all 11 starters they faced the Pittsburgh Steelers with Week 5, which should definitely help when dealing with a veteran like Ben Roethlisberger.
This pattern repeated itself throughout the game.
And rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster said Brown looked, "amazing, like he hasn't skipped a beat". Whether or not the Jaguars showed blitz, Roethlisberger kept throwing to his first read, frequently forcing throws to Brown.
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. But the ex-LSU prodigy bulldozed the Steelers in Week 5, rampaging for a season-high 181 yards (6.46 per tote) and two touchdowns. He's called for intentional grounding, loses 10 yards and the down.
What could Haley and the Steelers have done instead?

SACKSONVILLE: Jacksonville finished second to the Steelers in sacks (56-55) and was the only team in the National Football League this season and the first since the 2006 Ravens to have four players with at least eight sacks (defensive lineman Calais Campbell 14.5, defensive end Yannick Ngakoue 12.0, defensive end Dante Fowler Jr, 8.5 and defensive tackle Malik Jackson 8.0).
