Pick-sixes and boo birds: Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers offense hit risky low

Adjust Comment Print

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.

When Jacksonville is clicking, it has a defense that's a nightmare to score on and an offense that can grind away with Fournette.

"That's discipline", Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny said.

Nortman once again pinned the Pittsburgh offense deep in its own territory.

There's plenty of hype surrounding this week's Monday night tilt between the Vikings and the host Bears, with Chicago finally starting No. 2 pick Mitchell Trubisky at quarterback. He caught 27 passes for 276 yards and a touchdown. Watt and Ryan Shazier, there those opportunities will be limited.

Big Ben and Brown know they need each other, as they will go down as the best pass-and-catch combination in Steelers history.

China Open: Rafael Nadal to play Nick Kyrgios in final
It is true that in one moment of the second set, my serve didn't work that well, and I stopped a little bit with the backhand too. I was playing good at the beginning of the second and probably I had nearly match point with those two break points for 3-love.

Strong, whom the Jaguars claimed off waivers on September 19 from Houston, suffered a hamstring injury on a diving catch in his first practice with the Jaguars and missed the team's next five practices.

Defensively, the Ravens are ranked No. 21, but key injuries to linemen Brandon Williams and Brent Urban have caused one of the league's best run defense to slip to No. 25, allowing 127.3 yards per game.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are putting a pretty nice defense together, with quality depth. Church intercepted the deflection and returned it 51 yards for the touchdown.

The Steelers quarterback finished the first quarter 5-of-9 for 76 yards and the interception. Last Sunday saw Antonio Brown and Ben Roethlisberger have a slight war of words after a blowup on the sideline from Brown. On one, Fowler ran down Jets RB Bilal Powell from behind and prevented him from gaining a first down late in the game.

The Steelers moved to the Jaguars' nine but Bell lost two yards on second-and-goal and Roethlisberger threw incomplete. Artie Burns and Joe Haden should have a nice day, with the possibility of an interception or two between them. Jacksonville is surrendering more than 165 rushing yards per game on a league-worst 5.7 yards per carry with five touchdowns against; the Jags gave up just 3.8 YPC last season. They scratched and clawed their way back into the game late in the 4th, but a Chandler Catanzaro FG crushed their efforts in the OT period as time almost expired. Pittsburgh is still looking to get into an offensive rhythm but has held opponents to just 14.8 points per game - second-fewest in the National Football League - despite playing three of its first four games on the road.
