NY upheld the interception on replay.
Max McCaffrey, whom the Jaguars signed off New Orleans' practice squad on September 12, has played in the last three games mainly on special teams and does not have a catch. Brown will be a continued factor in the offense and things will run smoothly against a Jacksonville defense that can go from good to bad very quickly. However, a sack on Bortles by Steelers linebacker Vince Williams moved the Jaguars back to their side of the field. The underdog has covered in eight of the previous nine meetings - and the only favorite cover in that stretch came in their last meeting in 2014, when Pittsburgh prevailed 17-9 as a six-point fave.
-Steelers WR Antonio Brown vs. Jaguars CBs Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Boone.
Ryan Shazier played really well.
It nearly feels like beating a dead horse saying the Steelers should have one of the best offenses in the league.
Kicker Chris Boswell made a 31-yard field goal to conclude the first half.
Jacksonville held the Steelers to just 9 points, and kept them out of the endzone. He also had a bit of a sideline blowup during the game, owing in part to Ben Roethlisberger failing to see a wide-open Brown followed by an incomplete pass thrown his way. Powell initially ran for a short gain before he fell to the ground, realized he wasn't touched and won a long race to the end zone. Since 2015, the Steelers boast a 14-4 record at home, which ranks 2nd in the National Football League behind the Seattle Seahawks.
"There is a reason why he is a Pro Bowl running back", Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said. Overlooking the turnovers, the numbers for the Steelers offense don't look awful, Roethlisberger recorded over 300 yards passing and Antonio Brown topped 100 yards for the second time in the early season.
Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell had his first 100-yard game of the season last week, with 144 yards on 35 carries. The two plays were the catalysts for the win.
The Jaguars have now forced 15 turnovers in five games - two more takeaways than they forced in the entire 2016 season.
The Lions should consider themselves fortunate to be 3-1 at this stage of the season considering how undisciplined they've been so far.
The Jaguars were without center Brandon Linder (illness), wide receiver Jaelen Strong (hamstring) and defensive end Lerentee McCray (knee) entering the game due to injuries.
