Week Five Pittsburgh Steelers What To Watch For

Adjust Comment Print

But that's a problem the Jaguars will probably face all season. Without Bradford, the Vikings (2-2) started backup Case Keenum, who led the team to an impressive win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3. 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. Neither found the end zone, however. Their defense leads the league in sacks, with 18, and is formidable in coverage.

Sunday's loss to the Jaguars punctuates a five-game sample from which troubling trends are emerging about what previously had been a high-powered attack.

What's worse-far worse-is that two of those five interceptions were picked off and returned for touchdowns, first by linebacker Telvin Smith, whom Roethlisberger never saw (admittedly off of a pass that was deflected), and then by Barry Church, who had the ball batted to him by Jalen Ramsey on an overthrown deep ball.

In only one of those three games did Roethlisberger ever put his team in a chance to win, that being the Dallas loss from a year ago, when he connected with Antonio Brown late for a go-ahead score. Pittsburgh is also 2-2 against the spread on the season, but 1-0 ATS at home.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger did not have a good day Sunday.

It's a different story for Puerto Rico. "We've been making solid progress on this next step and would like to thank everyone who's been lending a hand".

Brown, of course, had himself a little tirade on the sidelines after just four catches for 34 yards. However, Big Ben has thrown for just 957 yards with six touchdowns and two interceptions.

After surrendering over 250 rushing yards last week against the Jets, the Jaguars limited the Steelers to just 70 yards and held Steelers' running back Le'veon Bell to 47 yards on 15 carries.

Bryant was added to the Steelers' injury report on Saturday due to an illness. He is questionable for today's game. Myers' field goal made it a 14-point game. In fact, I think it will only lead to a stronger performance.

"Our defense got stops, our offense was able to maintain possession of the ball because we took care of the ball, and that allowed us to continually snap it and produce the run total", Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. Pittsburgh is a completely different team at home than on the road, and with their defense playing at a high level, it will be hard for Jacksonville to stay within eight in this one. Yet, despite this one-sided trend, the Steelers are a 60 percent choice to cover among Sports Interaction bettors.
