Pittsburgh Steelers vs Jacksonville Jaguars

So they needed to try and find themselves as they headed to Heinz Field in Week 5 to do battle with the always risky Pittsburgh Steelers. Getting Gilbert back on the field against the Chiefs would provide a boost to the running game and perhaps provide some extra protection for Roethlisberger.

With only 41 seconds to work with, Roethlisberger hit JuJu Smith-Schuster for 21 yards and Brown for 23 yards to the Jaguars 17-yard line. The passer rating was his lowest since posting a career-worst 15.3 in 2008 at Washington. He hasn't thrown for 300 yards in a game yet in 2017, and the team has not scored 30 points in a game. The Jaguars picked off Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger five times, returning for scores on consecutive possessions in the third quarter to transform a two-point deficit into an 11-point lead. Roethlisberger's statement could fuel rumors that this could be his past year with the Steelers and might retire at the end of the season.

"Growing up in Oil City, of course I was a Steeler fan", an elated Koyack said after Sunday's victory. They've got great wide receivers and a quarterback that can't consistently get them the ball. Then strong safety Barry Church ran the next one back 51 yards.

Following a Carolina three-and-out, the Lions pulled to within 27-24 with 3:22 remaining on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Stafford to Fells. While the Steelers did not play well in any facet of the game, their offense was notably poor on Sunday. Maybe those oversights are due to Gilbert's habit of missing stretches of games.


The Jaguars have already matched their victory total from last season when they finished 3-13. While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don't think it's too much to ask our NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem. When his desperation heave to the end zone was snagged by Gipson with 3:16 left, it gave him five on the day, the most by a Steelers quarterback since Mark Malone did it against Cleveland 30 years ago. At the end of the year, we'll look at it and see where it's at.

How did Fournette get free on his 90-yard touchdown run? That's when he had seven interceptions and no touchdowns in the Steelers' first three games while coming back from an offseason motorcycle injury then an emergency appendectomy.

But when Roethlisberger tried to rally the Steelers, he threw two more interceptions.

Yes, that happened. And because it did, the Jaguars went a long way toward putting a disappointing loss to the New York Jets a week before behind them - and an even longer way toward making it really believable that good things could lie ahead. He also saw a team-high 4 targets but was quiet most of the day as Blake Bortles attempted just 14 passes in the blow out win. Brown caught 10 passes for 157 yards.
