Former Hurricanes' star predicted score of Jaguars-Steelers playoff game

Bortles, God bless him, was the quarterback of record yesterday afternoon at Heinz Field in the Jacksonville Jaguars' 45-42 divisional playoff victory against the peeing-down-their legs Pittsburgh Steelers.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Patriots are 9.5-point home favorites to knock off the surprising Jaguars at 3:05 p.m. ET on Sunday.

"Everyone's got to feel good physically and mentally and go out there and try to cut it loose one more time in a huge game".

Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny is probably the most polite player in the locker room, but even he had a slight dig at the Steelers about their Patriots comments over the past week.

The Steelers appeared to grab some momentum back after Antonio Brown made a diving catch near the sideline for a 23-yard touchdown.

Panipat police chief Rahul Sharma told AFP that two men, both neighbours of the victim, had been arrested over the crime. The victim, who later came to be addressed by the nation as "Nirbhaya", died several days after battling her injuries.

Ticked off by several Steelers openly talking about a rematch with the Patriots with a spot in the Super Bowl on the line, the Jaguars took it out on Pittsburgh one touchdown at a time.

"I was comfortable with that", Tomlin said. It just didn't. The Jaguars were the more poised team on Sunday.

But the Jags were still disruptive. The Jaguars played with urgency immediately while building a stunning 21-0 second quarter lead on the strength of forcing two Roethlisberger turnovers.

There was still time for Roethlisberger, who ended up with 469 yards through the air, to complete a fifth touchdown toss to JuJu Smith-Schuster but it was too late to prevent Jacksonville from advancing.

A much easier evening had looked on the cards as the Vikings had led by 17 points in the third quarter before an impressive comeback by the Saints, who led by a point with 10 seconds left on the clock. And, yes, the fourth-year man is now 2-0 in the playoffs.

Maduro added: " First come the words of contempt, then come the threats, and then comes the action". The American president long has been regarded as "leader of the free world".

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is not going to end his National Football League career with a home playoff loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The loss was due in part to a series of poor play calls and missed opportunities from the Steelers offense, especially on fourth down.

Against the Steelers on Sunday, he was neither stellar nor shoddy; he was pedestrian. But it wasn't until the fourth quarter that things got insane. Bortles did not throw an interception or turn the ball over. The Steelers defense had no answer for the Jaguars offense. In Week 5, the LSU product put up season-high numbers: 181 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries.

Regardless of where the blame falls or who you wish to second guess, the Steelers came up short again of the ultimate goal of hoisting the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the seventh time in franchise history. Keelan Cole and Marqise Lee have combined for 1,450 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Allen Hurns has 39 receptions.

But the story of this game, was the absolute resiliency of the Jacksonville Jaguars offense.

Speaking of Blake Bortles, coming into 2017, he had a combined 11 wins over three seasons. He accounted for 77 yards and a touchdown on eight touches. This will be the final game of the season for two teams, while the other two will stamp their tickets to a showdown in the Midwest for all the marbles. This will be the club's third appearance in an AFC title game.
