Watch as the Pittsburgh Steelers try to stay unbeaten at home while they take on the Jacksonville Jaguars.
It won’t be easy, but the Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping to stay perfect at home while they take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. With two of the best defenses in the AFC, this game could be a low scoring affair, but should be filled with plenty of hard-hitting AFC action.
For both teams, the running game could be what carries them to victory. Le’Veon Bell’s 35 touches in Week 4 weren’t something many Steelers fans want to see each week, but for right now, riding their running back may be the best chance this team has to continue winning.
Leonard Fournette has already become a breakout star in the NFL, but against a tough front seven in Pittsburgh, he should be looking at a poor day on the ground. Although Blake Bortles is having one of his strongest starts of his career, he won’t be able to get much going against a pass rush like the Steelers and a strong secondary that’s finally coming together.
This one should stay in Pittsburgh’s favor, especially at home. The Steelers are one of the hardest teams in the league to beat at home, and as a less-talented team, the Jaguars come to Heinz Field with a major disadvantage.
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.
Expect a close game, based on a heavy rush attack and some solid defense. But at the end of it all, the Steelers should have too much to keep Jacksonville relevant for an entire 60 minutes.
