Jaguars vs. Steelers 2018: Prediction, Betting Odds, Preview For Divisional Playoff Game

Haley Nelson | Pittsburgh Post Gazette | AP | BDN

He somehow managed to have more rushing yards, with 88, than passing yards, with 87, in a 10-3 triumph Sunday over the Buffalo Bills in the opening round of the playoffs.

The Steelers will host the Jaguars on Sunday in the second AFC Divisional Playoff game of the weekend.

The Steelers are coming off a first-round bye as the No. 2 seed in behind the top-seeded New England Patriots. The Steelers were 10th against the run.

Bortles won't get a chance to make a momentum-changing mistake because he either won't have the ball in his hands or the Steelers will get to him before he releases a pass. "It will be a challenge for our guys up front. This is the freshest I've ever been going into the playoffs so we'll see how it goes". But they let a large percentage of those explosive plays get by them.

Early in the season, in Week 5, the Jaguars showed the world that they were nothing to mess with as they came into Heinz Field and had a crushing 30-9 victory over the Steelers. Having nothing to lose against a team that faces plenty of pressure to dispose of an inferior opponent and could be looking past said opponent at the New England Patriots? They probably won't need to do much man against the Jaguars because their receivers simply aren't talented enough. And they say they intend to prove it again on Sunday on the same field they ran for 231 yards during Week 5.

Leonard Fournette ran for 181 yards when the Jaguars beat the Steelers in October.

The Jaguars also boast the best passing defense in the National Football League, holding opponents to 169.9 yards per game and leading the National Football League with 21 interceptions. "But nobody is going to know what's going to happen with Kirk Cousins until March". The Jacksonville defense is for real as well, ranking second in the league in scoring defense, total defense and takeaways.

Longtime Jaguars fan Leroy Ricks said he wouldn't miss Friday's sendoff, and he's optimistic about Sunday's game. Also, in the week five matchup vs. Pittsburgh, Bortles threw for just 95 yards.

Italy recently passed a similar law saying that restaurants are not allowed to keep live lobsters on ice before boiling them. This new lobster law is part of an overall reform in Switzerland's animal protection laws.

In the regular-season finale against the Tennessee Titans, the Jaguars were held to 83 yards rushing.

According to Mande, a team official has informed him that Bortles is "aware" of the jokes that The Good Place cracks at his expense, and that the Jaguars have had a "great sense of humor about it", even inviting Mande and Jacinto to Jacksonville for last week's playoff game. But is that scenario in Jacksonville's best interests or exactly what Pittsburgh wants to see unfold? It's now second and 20, but as we saw Monday night the NCAA National Championship game, sometimes there's one more obstacle to overcome before the hero rises. "We know there's a lot at stake and I think everyone's put a lot into it". The game he had against Jacksonville earlier this season was a fluke for the talented quarterback. His 7,996 yards from scrimmage is most by player in first five years of franchise history and he caught 85 passes in 2017, most among NFL RBs ... The Jags are a one-dimensional team with no chance to beat the angry, redemptive Steelers at Heinz Field. And then they lost poor Ryan Shazier to a awful injury and then Antonio got hurt- but it sounds like he's going to come back, but will he be 1000% right for this game?

- And, again, you haven't loved their defense all year. "We've got to come out with our A game".
