Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: Friday Fact or Fiction for Week 5

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: Friday Fact or Fiction for Week 5

The Jacksonville Jaguars will now carry only two quarterbacks when they face the Pittsburgh Steelers (3-1) Sunday after releasing third-string signal-caller #Ryan Nassib.

If you looked at just Weeks 1 and 3 of the 2017 National Football League season, you might think the Jacksonville Jaguars are Super Bowl contenders.

The easiest way to beat the Jaguars is by forcing quarterback Blake Bortles to beat you.

Division leaders: Both teams top their respective division. Ben Roethlisberge completed 29 of 42 passes for 337 yards, two touchdowns and three picks in the game. Running back Leonard Fournette posted 100 yards in his season-opening game, but hasn't reached 90 yards in the last three games. Thus, the Steelers will have to look elsewhere in general-to the run game-for its offense to thrive this week, and potentially to other receivers, when Roethlisberger is throwing the ball.

"We did a good job sticking to the run", said Bell.

The Jaguars produced five interceptions on Sunday. The Panthers are coming off a stunning 33-30 win over the defending-champion Patriots at Foxboro, while the Lions ground out a 14-7 road win over Minnesota last weekend.

Lee (ribs) and Linder (illness) were among four players the Jaguars listed as questionable for the game at Heinz Field. Only Tampa Bay has garnered fewer than Carolina's 118 penalty yards against, and the Buccaneers have only played three games. That's a net of 10.8 FanDuel points at a cost of $5,800. This makes an already hard job even more so for the Jaguars. If the NFL Network is part of your cable package, you can also live stream the game through the NFL app on XBox, Apple TV, or Roku device on your TV. Bell touched the ball 25 times for 93 total yards. It's no surprise, then, that the Lions rank second from the bottom in net penalty yards with -125 - and a similar performance this weekend could spell trouble for the hosts.

Also, players' Speed Run times will be recorded and shareable on social media, so you can compete with your friends. I think this scene will be one of the very first scenes in the season, so it's not spoiling all that much.

The Ravens are one of seven AFC teams with a.500 record.

The Jaguars stayed in the game early the same way they took control in the second half -- turning takeaways into points.

Steelers: Travel to Kansas City next week in a rematch of last year's AFC Divisional Round playoff.

Unless they start hot, the Steelers should be able to keep control through a sound running game, and as long as Ben Roethlisberger can find the endzone once or twice, this game should be too much for the Jaguars to handle. These grades might make a lot of parents mad. He's always been an albatross that can't lead the offense, and that's been proven.

No wonder Steelers fans booed this one.

Minnesota could have Sam Bradford back under center this week - and while that's great news for the offense, substitute Case Keenum has performed admirably in Bradford's absence. If Lee can't go against the Steelers, Arrelious Benn will likely start in his place and Max McCaffrey is expected to see some snaps for the first time this year.
