Steelers offense faces tough test in stout Jacksonville pass defense

Share

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger tends to hold the ball, to pump fake, to give his receivers an extra second to get open. Brown has twice as many receptions and yards than the next Pittsburgh receiver.

There's plenty of other issues the Ravens had, their defense looked rough, Marlon Humphery, in particular, looked outmatched more often than not, the offensive line was terrible and the running game looked pedestrian, with only Alex Collins providing any kind of burst (and he fumbled the ball). They will look to keep things rolling this week against Jacksonville. He simply needs to play a conservative, smart game. David Garrard was a pitiful 9-of-21 for 140 yards, one touchdown and two picks in a game that was shockingly close. Brown will likely be without Martavis Bryant on the other side as he's officially listed as doubtful.

Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell appeared to finally shake off the rust against the Ravens, piling up 186 yards from scrimmage as Pittsburgh posted its most lopsided victory in Baltimore since the Ravens bolted from Cleveland more than two decades ago. Allen Hurns also caught 4 passes for 42 yards, and after Hurns, no Jaguar caught more than 2 passes in the loss. Jacksonville has rushed for more than 150 yards in three of four games and its 148.8 yards per game are second-best in the league.

Every team loves to play at home, but few love it more than the Pittsburgh Steelers. DE Calais Campbell is tied for second in the National Football League with 5.5 sacks.

The Steelers are getting plenty of points in this one - and past history between these teams suggests that might favor the Jaguars. Obviously Bortles' best protection lies with Fournette and a relentless ground attack. He has a career passer rating of 79.7 and has consistently struggled with mechanical issues throughout his tenure. They've got great wide receivers and a quarterback that can't consistently get them the ball. It's only a matter of time before his time runs out as the starting QB of this team. If they do it right, they can win. They sacked Joe Flacco four times, recorded nine tackles for a loss and picked off Flacco twice. Watt and Ryan Shazier, there those opportunities will be limited.

Here is my "dark horse" QB of the week.

As Lageman sees it: This is a hard matchup for the Jaguars. With all the weapons at his disposal, Roethlisberger is a threat to go off any week.

The Jaguars used to be a team that you'd try to stay away from on Sunday's, but they've quickly become a fun one to watch for their defensive prowess. Yet, despite this one-sided trend, the Steelers are a 60 percent choice to cover among Sports Interaction bettors.

The Steelers will win if: They stuff the run on first down and force Bortles into second- and third-and long.

As much as Jacksonville would like to establish its running game, the Steelers will be tempted to do the same.
