Blake Bortles says criticism of his game will 'probably never stop'

Blake Bortles says criticism of his game will 'probably never stop'

Does he believe, Roethlisberger was asked, that Sunday's game is his last at Heinz Field?

And while many expect the road to Super Bowl LII to feature a rematch of Pittsburgh and the New England Patriots, Jacksonville is anything but a speed bump.

The Pittsburgh Steelers must capitalize on a championship window that won't be open forever, running back Le'Veon Bell said. Indeed, Bortles-the favorite player of The Good Place's oft-mocked Floridian, Jason Mendoza (Manny Jacinto)-played a significant role in the team's first playoff win since 2007, leading the 11-6 Jaguars to victory over the Buffalo Bills. 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. Now set to take on the Steelers, the team knows they have a tough challenge in front of them, but are also confident as they prepare to and get their first playoff victory in 10 years.

Pittsburgh has been almost unbeatable since they hosted Jacksonville. He just plays in Jacksonville so no one knows about him. The Steelers nearly went undefeated over the final 11 games of the season, suffering their only loss to the New England Patriots because of a controversial call. Since that loss to the Jaguars the Steelers have gone 10-1.

Ben Roethlisberger threw 14 interceptions during the regular season - five of them came on October 8. "We have to focus in on what we have to do and play our best game".

Early in the game, Jacksonville showed a lot of tight man and off-man looks, with a single high safety.

Company officials were not immediately available for comment, but the Sam's Club Twitter account offered up a brief statement. Earlier during the day, news broke of the closing of an unknown number of Sam's Club stores.

Pittsburgh recorded 16 passes that gained 40 or more yards during the course of the regular season, which was tied for the most in the National Football League with the Detroit Lions it will surely not surprise you who the primary protagonists have been in that regard for the team.

Cornerback Jalen Ramsey and defensive lineman Calais Campbell have been the main factors on Jacksonville's terrorizing defense this season. They want to make sure there's no way you'll want to miss it.

PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: Steelers TE Vance McDonald emerged as a bigger threat in the passing game during the second half of the season. Meanwhile, Big Ben had a bit of a down year and his top receiver, Antonio Brown, is still fighting back from a calf injury. If Bortles plays poorly on Sunday, the Jaguars likely will lose to the Steelers, and that's certainly a black mark against him, as it will show he didn't deliver when the team needed him the most.

"We made it to the Elite Eight, we're trying to get to the Final Four and we're trying to get to a chance to win it all", Brees said. "Blake Bortles won't be the quarterback of the Jaguars next year". Although Bortles had the best regular season in his career, in which he threw only 13 interceptions and completed 60 percent of his passes, he has played badly in his last two games of the season. Although three of those showings came against non-playoff contenders - the December 49ers kind of doubled as one, however - Bortles sliced up the (admittedly injury-riddled) Seahawks in a 268-yard, two-touchdown day that would be lethal on Sunday if the Jags' defense could be staked to this kind of an outing. NBC's immensely amusing, incredibly clever afterlife comedy has taken an absurd amount of joy in poking fun at both the city of Jacksonville and the historically hapless professional football team that calls the southern hamlet home.

Hurns only saw 1 target last week, suffering from a poor performance from Blake Bortles, who threw for only 87 yards.
