Steelers WR expected to play Sunday despite illness

Steelers WR expected to play Sunday despite illness

With players such as rookie running back Leonard Fournette and a talented defense to supplement the offensive production, the Jaguars are more unsafe than some people may think.

Blake Bortles had a breakthrough season by completing 61.4 percent of his passes for 3,529 yards and 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, and ran for 313 yards and two touchdowns.On the ground, Fournette rushed for 971 yards and nine touchdowns while Chris Ivory added 382 yards and a touchdown. If the front three can not make a tackle from the first hit, there will be many woes to witness once Fournette hits that second level of the defense.

The Steelers will host the Jaguars on Sunday in the second AFC Divisional Playoff game of the weekend. It will be up to Williams and the middle of the Steelers defense to make sure Fournette is less effective in the rematch.

"Obviously, we have to do a good job there, but we have to do a good job for 60 minutes and in all areas".

"This is a very special victory for us, not just because it's a playoff win", Ravens coach John Harbaugh said after that victory on January 3, 2015. "We can play them in hell, we can play them in Haiti, we can play them in New England".

In total, the Jaguars rushed for over 230 yards in a dominating 30-9 win against Pittsburgh. "If you want to look forward in front of the Patriots, that's cool, you know, but if we smack you in the mouth and you're not playing them, what's all that going to do for you?"

". Scrambling around and doing some different things, and guys making some plays, we found a way to score one more time than they did".

The Jags take on the Steelers in Pittsburgh, Sunday at 1:05 p.m. Roethlisberger sat out the regular-season finale, but has still scored 16 total touchdowns while turning the ball over just four times and averaging 325.5 yards per game since Week. 11.

The NWS has issued a winter weather advisory. What does that mean?
Rain can fall heavily on the morning drive, so roads will be wet and slippery for you on your drive to work on Friday morning. The NWS and Kentucky Transportation Cabinet are warning travelers in the area to stay alert as the storm moves into the area.

Whether it was 2014 with the Ravens or this season with the Jaguars, the biggest storyline is Steelers quarterback.

Against San Francisco and Tennessee, Bortles threw a combined two touchdowns and five interceptions.

"I don't rank that one", he said. Most noteworthy, in the passing game where Bell has 85 catches. In the regular-season meeting, he was intercepted a career-high five times by the Jaguars.

Big Ben and the Steelers claim to welcome a chance at a rematch against the Jags, and numerous Jaguars have responded publicly that Big Ben should be careful with what he wishes for on Sunday.

In "Team Cockroach", which in Good Place mythology takes place in the future, an eager Jason asks Michael, a demon, if the Jaguars will ever be lucky enough to hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy. After that, though, Pittsburgh would go on a tear. "You want to go prove that it was a fluke or whatever it might be".

Unless the Steelers tighten up on their rushing defense, this game will be a clock-draining, low-scoring, brutal game to watch, even if it does result in a Pittsburgh win.

Pittsburgh is about to look a lot more teal as Jaguar fans descend on the Steel City. "I know what I do and what I bring to the table". He's not much of a threat through the air, but it should be noted that the fourth-year former No. 3 overall pick made a huge difference with his legs.

Brown, the standout wide receiver who suffered a calf injury during the Steelers' loss to the Patriots last month that went a long way toward deciding the AFC's top seed, is to return to the lineup Sunday. Jalen Ramsey cautioned Ben Roethlisberger to "be careful what you wish for", after Roethlisberger's comments about wanting to play the Jags again. They aren't going to be in a wish-granting mood when it comes to Roethlisberger and the Steelers. "We've got to come out with our A game".
