Jaguars at Steelers - Live Blog

The Jacksonville Jaguars better hope their defense shows up in a big way in this game, because their offense has been junk lately.

After a 10-3 snooze fest last week, the Jacksonville Jaguars are going to take on one of the most potent offenses in the NFL in the Pittsburgh Steelers. Their defense will need to huge game to help the Jaguars advance to the Conference Championship round.

In this same house in Week 5, the Jaguars did completely shut down and blow out the Steelers 30-9, but that was a long time ago and the Jaguars offense has devolved into the abyss since that game.

Meanwhile, the Steelers were in the abyss then and have since exploded on their way to a 13-3 record and the number two seed in the AFC. I think it will be a bit of a defense struggle, but the Steelers will do just enough to overcome the Jaguars defense. Meanwhile, Blake Bortles will do some things that will ensure the Steelers advance.
