Bell: Steelers must capitalize on Killer B's

Bell: Steelers must capitalize on Killer B's

That's the big difference, and the main reason why Pittsburgh is favored by about a touchdown. It didn't take much for the Jaguars to have their best team in a decade after being perennial losers for the last 10 years. The Jaguars-Steelers and Falcons-Eagles games have lower totals, with both now sitting at 41 points.

The Jaguars defeated the Buffalo Bills 10-3 at EverBank Field last Sunday in the wildcard round. How the Jaguars win? If under pressure, bad Bortles throws to the wrong jerseys. Both came in the closing minutes of regulation, but the Jaguars were able to overcome both picks. The quarterback wasn't much better against Pittsburgh when he completed eight of 14 passes for 95 yards, no touchdowns and an interception. But you never want two of your top linebackers out of practice ahead of the biggest game of the season.

"It only becomes more important". We have another opportunity with them. "There's people that think LeBron James sucks, so if that happens, I'm sure there'll be a lot of people that always think I suck".

That win put Jacksonville above.500 and matched their win total from the previous season. But he set career-lows in the opener against Houston when he was 11-for-21. "It's going to be a good game".

Those aren't eye-popping numbers by any stretch of the imagination, but in a Steeler offense that has spread the ball around a lot without Antonio Brown in the lineup, Bryant has made his targets count more and more.

"Hopefully we can throw less; that would be awesome", he said. This has plagued the Steeler D all year and couldn't be more evident than when Leonard Fournette ran for 181 yards including a 90 yard explosion on a power run play to seal the game late in the fourth quarter.

"Whatever it takes to keep those guys off balance", said Bell, who broke the franchise postseason single-game rushing record with 170 yards in last year's divisional round against.

"This is a playoff game, so I don't really care if it was Joe Montana", Byard said.

SERIES HISTORY: 25th all-time meeting.

The Jaguars allowed a franchise-record 24 sacks, which tied the Steelers and Falcons for the third-fewest in the National Football League behind the Chargers (18) and the Saints (20).

Before either of the AFC's two wild card playoff games had kicked off, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger knew which team he'd like to face in Heinz Field in their eventual divisional round matchup: the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Sunday, 1:05 p.m. ET, Heinz Field, TV: CBS, Ian Eagle, Dan Fouts, Evan Washburn (field reporter). Though David Garrard was better that season than Blake Bortles is right now, the teams almost mirrored each other offensively, the 2017 Jags have the edge on defense, and they're going to need it going up against one of the most explosive and unsafe offenses in the league. Because of Jacksonville's stout passing defense, Bell will need to step up and have a huge performance for the Steelers. They can not let the Jaguars sustain drives even they don't all turn into points.

In this December 17, 2017, file photo, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (12) plays against the Pittsburgh Steelers, in an NFL football game, in Pittsburgh.

Defensively, the Jaguars yielded 16.9 points and 289.7 total yards (173.5 in passing and 116.3 in rushing) per game. The Jaguars also beat the Steelers 31-29 the last time the teams faced off in the playoffs in January 2008. It started last week when Roethlisberger said in an interview that he wanted to play the Jaguars. I think that's what we're all in this tournament chasing.

More often than not, one of Jalen Ramsey's least favorite activities is to stand in front of a media throng at his locker and answer even the most routine questions.

"Be careful what you wish for", said cornerback A.J. Bouye ... The Steelers can feel confident in what they're going to get from Smith-Schuster, but Bryant is more of a roller-coaster. Bortles had been much more productive through the air during a three-game stretch from December 3 through December 1, when he completed a combined 71.4 percent of his passes (65-for-91) for 903 yards with seven touchdowns and no interceptions.

-The Jaguars' first playoff appearance since 2007 is earning the Jaguars some national recognition.

The Steelers finished the regular season hot and the Jaguars did not, but Pittsburgh rarely overwhelms anyone in the playoffs, and Jacksonville can be deadly if opponents let it hang around.

The interest in Fournette has increased to the extent that Fournette is ranked No. 8 overall in jersey sales this week on the DICK'S Sporting Goods Jersey Report.
