3 trap games that cost the Pittsburgh Steelers their season
3. Steelers vs Jaguars – 2007 Regular-season & Playoff, 2016 Regular-season & Playoff
Beginning in 1995, the Steelers began playing the Jaguars as they entered the league as an expansion team and into their division, but I believe that the Steelers were thinking years later, maybe they shouldn’t have.
The Jaguars, led by Tom Coughlin and quarterback Mark Brunell in the early beginnings, had the Steelers number as Pittsburgh couldn’t figure out their offense to save their games. Once Brunell retired, here comes Byron Leftwich, David Garrard, and Blake Bortles (Yeah, I said Blake Bortles). 2007 and 2016 were the hardest pills the Steelers had to swallow, all of which took place in critical points of the season and into the playoffs. The games made it worse, all losses were at home where they matter most. In these separate games, the Steelers were outplayed that the Defense struggled more than the Offense giving up between 30 – 45 points.
