Steelers @ Jags

Recommended Posts



The Jaguars defeated the Steelers in a pair of meetings in Pittsburgh last season, 30-9 in Week 5 and 45-42 in a Divisional Playoff. The 75 points scored by the Jags are tied for the sixth most ever by a Steelers opponent in a single season, combining regular season and playoffs.

The Steelers have won five consecutive games since the start of October, outscoring their opponents by a combined 177-93 and averaging 427.0 total yards per game. Pittsburgh's 35.4 points per game over that stretch is topped by only the Saints' 38.6 points per contest.

The Jaguars have done the exact opposite of the Steelers, going 0-5 since October 1. The Jags are scoring 14.4 points per game during the losing streak, second fewest in the league during that span (Oakland -- 10.0). They have 12 turnovers and only eight touchdowns in those five games.

In last Thursday's rout of the Panthers, Ben Roethlisberger posted a perfect passer rating for the second time in his career (minimum 20 attempts). He threw five touchdown passes for the sixth time ever and had only three incompletions (22-for-25). His 350 career TD passes are tied with Eli Manning for seventh all-time.

Blake Bortles is tied for the second-most giveaways in the NFL in 2018 with 11 (eight interceptions, three lost fumbles), though he has been turnover-free in his last two games. Bortles passed for 320 yards in last week's loss at Indianapolis, dropping his career record to 6-14 when he passes for at least 300 yards.

Since Week 5 of last season, including regular season and playoffs, the Steelers are 0-2 against Jacksonville, allowing 37.5 points per game. Against all other teams in that time, Pittsburgh is 16-3-1, yielding 21.4 points per contest.

Football is stupid and I'm tired of this team.
