Jaguars vs. Steelers: Updated Odds,Stat Predictions for 2018 AFC Divisional Game

We have an AFC divisional round matchup from Heinz Field as the Jacksonville Jaguars face off against the Pittsburgh Steelers in National Football League action on Sunday afternoon. The Steelers were still in the mix for home field advantage with the New England Patriots facing off against the New York Jets.

Do the Jaguars have any chance at a win in this one or will it be the Steelers moving onto the AFC Championship game?

Much like they were in the first matchup, the Steelers are heavy favorites over the Jaguars.

Pittsburgh has been almost unbeatable since they hosted Jacksonville.

Of the many storylines from this week's slate of four divisional games, the rematch between Ben Roethlisberger and the Jacksonville Jaguars secondary is the one that has piqued my curiosity the most.

Pittsburgh will be gearing up to get revenge with the recent memory of that embarrassing regular season loss. During that span, Roethlisberger was a top-five fantasy quarterback, with three separate 30-plus point performances against Tennessee, Green Bay, and Baltimore.

Tuitt suffered an elbow injury on Wednesday, but the player said the injury was minor in nature and had always expected to play on Sunday. Against the Bills, the defense swarmed the line of scrimmage and put eight to ten players in the box. The game he had against Jacksonville earlier this season was a fluke for the talented quarterback.

Bell and Brown accounted for 3,479 yards and 21 touchdowns of offense in 2017, while Roethlisberger served as a top-five passer with 4,251 yards.




Cornerback Jalen Ramsey and defensive lineman Calais Campbell have been the main factors on Jacksonville's terrorizing defense this season.

Brees is the only quarterback in the NFC play-offs to have a Super Bowl victory next to his name, and his big-game temperament was pivotal in the Saints 31-26 win over the Carolina Panthers last weekend.

Now the Jaguars have a chance to replicate this result with their second win in Pittsburgh on the season. Theismann said. "That would make sense for them". However, the Jags might have the advantage when the Steelers throw the ball - and perhaps no other team can make that claim. Le'Veon Bell led the team with just under 1,300 rushing yards and 9 touchdowns on the ground, while Antonio Brown led Pittsburgh's receiving group with 101 catches for 1,533 yards and 9 receiving TDs. Do you think Brown plays on Sunday?

With Brown likely limited by his injury, establishing the run will be key for the Steelers Sunday.

"I am not anxious about what's going on up there (with the Patriots)", Roethlisberger said.

The only difference from those games is Bortles won't throw close to the average of 251 passing yards he threw for in the contests he didn't commit a turnover. Bortles doesn't need to throw for 300 yards to beat Pittsburgh. NBC's immensely amusing, incredibly clever afterlife comedy has taken an absurd amount of joy in poking fun at both the city of Jacksonville and the historically hapless professional football team that calls the southern hamlet home. His abilities in coverage also stood out Week 5 despite the Steelers losing. "We'll bring [Brown] back in the building (Saturday) and continue with his game readiness".

What happens on Sunday will be a big part of the team's decision-making process because quarterbacks earn their stripes in the postseason.
