The Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Jaguars this Sunday after a solid road win against the Ravens. Here are 3 keys to the Steelers coming away with a win.
The Steelers are playing at home Sunday, which is good because Jacksonville is exactly the type of team the Steelers would blow it against on the road. There, I said it. But make no mistake, the Jags are better than the Bears. They may be 2-2 but they’ve got some things going for them.
The Jaguars have quietly pulled together the second best rushing offense in the league as of week 4 with the one-two punch from Leonard Fournette and Chris Ivory, among others.
Take it from Le’Veon Bell, who said of Forunette according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com, “He’s impressive, real impressive. I love watching him run. He’s a guy who doesn’t shy away from contact at all. He’s a big guy, fast guy. It’s going to be fun watching him run the ball. Chris Ivory is the same way.”
They also have the top passing defense in the league (Steelers right behind them) and are capable of some big defense plays with 5 interceptions by the likes of Calais Campbell racking up sacks.
Lesson is, don’t take the Jags lightly. They can play football. So what do the Steelers need to do to top the Jags?
