Steelers player already guaranteeing playoff win against Patriots

The Steelers lost in Week 5 to the Jaguars 30-9.

The Steelers defense has a chance to do what the Jaguars defense did the first time around.

STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Second postseason meeting between teams. Despite his late-season struggles, Fournette still rushed for 1,040 yards and scored nine touchdowns in 13 games.

But what is not clear now, as Roethlisberger and the Steelers ready for Sunday's AFC divisional-round playoff game at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars, is just how much time he has left.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said only, "awesome", when asked about Brown's return. All they need is a defense and an offense and some rule changes. We didn't necessarily stick to our game plan. Pittsburgh playing in 61st playoff game, tied with Dallas for most in National Football League history.

Byard told the Tennessean this week he wants to make New England's Tom Brady look like Bortles. Jacksonville won their first-round postseason matchup in spite of his 87 passing yards.

Ben Roethlisberger threw 14 interceptions during the regular season - five of them came on October 8.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have taken an unlikely route to the playoffs.

And most recently, Titans All-Pro safety Kevin Byard said his goal in Tennessee's Divisional Round game against the Patriots is to make Tom Brady "look like Blake Bortles".

"Really at the end of the day it was just a hard-fought game and that's what playoff football is, and we were able to get the win at home, which was big", said Marrone, who elaborated upon that point later in the press conference. It's a little bit faster each game. "You want to go prove that it was a fluke or whatever it might be".

"We put it together a few days ago, and basically we have two buses that will be filled with 56 of the craziest Jaguar fans in Jacksonville", Mendenhall said.

He ended the game with a season-best 181 yards rushing.

The Steelers are heavy favorites for a reason. Leonard Fournette rushed for 57 yards in 21 attempts. The Steelers, however, will be without a key member of their own defense in linebacker Ryan Shazier, who sustained a scary spinal injury in early December.

What transpires when the Jags' offense plays will decide the outcome of this game. Defensively, the Steelers are yielding 19.2 points and 306.9 total yards (201.1 in passing and 105.8 in rushing) per game. Ben Roethlisberger threw for 337 yards, two touchdowns and three picks in a loss to the David Garrard-led Jags. Bell and Martavis Bryant combined for 1,258 yards and five touchdowns. CB Jalen Ramsey stole INT with 32 seconds remaining in game last week ... Todd Haley is a good offensive coordinator, but he's stubborn, and tends to handcuff Roethlisberger at the worst possible times. Le'veon Bell will be featured in this match and will produce for the Steelers. His 88 yards rushing were the most by a Jaguars player in almost a month. Steelers WR Antonio Brown expects to play. JuJu Smith-Schuster is integrated into the offense and it firing at all cylinders. Also, the rookie had a career-high 28 carries. Alualu, who made five starts this year, has had one of the best seasons of his career in his inaugural season with the Steelers. In the 10 games since, Roethlisberger has 22 touchdowns to seven interceptions.
