Baltimore Ravens: Joe Flacco Needs to Get Back on Track

NFL Predictions Week 5: Jacksonville Jaguars at Pittsburgh Steelers Picks, Predictions, and Odds 10/08/17

His top weapon was wide receiver Marqise Lee who caught two passes for 49 yards.

The boos from the the Heinz Field crowd were so persistent Sunday that Steelers offensive players were left staring at the jumbotron over and over, wondering what the heck just happened on each maligned play.

As a result, Fournette will once again head the Jaguars' rushing attack Sunday against the Steelers.

Coach Doug Marrone cautioned that it's not all on the front four.

"That's exactly what they do", said Steelers safety Mike Mitchell. "Now you kind of have an understanding of where you are and where you want to get to". Artie Burns and Joe Haden should have a nice day, with the possibility of an interception or two between them. Against the Jets, the Jaguars were floundering before Myles Jack scooped up a fumble and raced 81 yards for a touchdown and A.J. Bouye intercepted a pass to give the Jaguars a chance to win. However, the Steelers did post their most rushing attempts (43) as well as rushing yards (173) last week against the Ravens.

Here are the games that fans will get to Sunday see and the channels that will televise them.

For both teams, the running game could be what carries them to victory.

The Steelers defense wasn't flawless on Sunday, but they played well enough to win.

In Week 4, they ran the ball effectively but really only did so because they played from ahead.

Rookie running back Leonard Fournette's two-yard touchdown ended the ensuing possession gave the Jaguars a 7-3 lead.

As much as Jacksonville would like to establish its running game, the Steelers will be tempted to do the same. The Titans won the physical battle and by the second half, were gashing the Jaguars defense. Their defense, however, is allowing 18.5 points and 312.5 yards per game. Ben Roethlisberger and the rest of the Steelers' offense is still finding its footing early in the season, but comes into this one with a 3-1 record - and a significant advantage when it comes to their run game, if last week's strategy is any indication.

- In Jacksonville's last four road games the Jaguars have turned the ball over four times while only creating 10 takeaways. During the first four games of the 2016 season Bortles was sacked 12 times. Tyler Shatley would start in his place.

"Rhythm is within yourself. "(There are) guys on the field who you have to be in rhythm with.

The differences are as stark as they are incomprehensible; Football Outsiders rates the Jags as having the league's best pass defense. and its worst rush defense. He had a limited practice today (Friday) which means it is not certain for him to play.
