Go get that money. Le’Veon Bell, according to Le’Veon Bell as reported on ESPN.com, might retire after this season so make it count. Bell almost played a full season this year for the second time in his career and nearly had 2000 yards overall. It’s probably a good idea to not rely on the pass alone given how the Jaguars are so good at not only defending it but taking the ball away when it is thrown.
Obviously the Steelers are going to pass. They’re pretty good at it. But Bell will still play a huge part in this half of the offense as well. First, he’ll be the last line of defense picking up blitzing linebackers and linemen who break through. And second, if all the receivers are covered or Ben has to dump the ball in a hurry, Bell will be there to pick up yards.
So there you have it. The three keys to beating the Jags. There’s an added emphasis on the first point however, hence the all caps. The Steelers are just a better team overall. But with turnovers, any team can beat any team. So as long as the Steelers avoid that X factor, and then follow through on what they do, they should get a nice win at home.
