"That game for our entire group was a watershed moment. Keep in mind the Jaguars only asked Blake Bortles to attempt 14 passes in the victory over the Steelers during the regular season.
@Patriots The Patriots won three of their last four games to close the season and would have won every game dating back to Week 4 if not for an odd hiccup against the Miami Dolphins during a Week 14 Monday night game.
Brady 66.3 completion percentage, 4,577 yards, 32 touchdowns and eight interceptions) that the team felt comfortable enough to trade away the guy behind him on the depth chart.
But with the dominant teams entering the fray after a week of rest, the second round doesn't look like it will hold as many surprises.
The schedule should still feature some of the best football games of the year, but even oddsmakers out of Las Vegas seem to paint the slate in a predictable light. But Marcus Mariota's team is a two-touchdown 'dog in this one for a reason. Going to Kansas City and stealing an upset sounds great, yet one could argue the unexpected result was more a typical Chiefs collapse than anything else.
Brady is 6-1 (including playoffs) against the Titans with 13 pass TD and 1 INT in those games.
That is his best TD-INT ratio against any opponent in his career.
As usual, the Steelers got their act together as the season went on, getting 28 touchdowns and 14 interceptions from Big Ben and 1,291 yards and nine scores on four yards per carry from Le'Veon Bell. Our guys handled adversity well and moved forward."But the chances Big Ben throws another five interceptions in a game to key a Jaguars win?
An injury to Antonio Brown seems like a non-storyline at this point, and the team quietly has a defense allowing only 19.3 points per game. The Steelers, headlined by offensive coordinator Todd Haley, see it as the turning point of the season. Slim—it was one of two multi-interception games for him on the season. Big Ben and the Steelers know the key here is jumping out to an early lead and taking away what the Jaguars do best, so look for it to unfold as the fading Jaguars, 0-2 to close the season, shrink in the spotlight.
#Jaguars' Jalen Ramsey and AJ Bouye combined for the best passer rating among CB teammate duos. For those counting, the Jaguars even took down the Steelers in 30-9 fashion in Week 5 while picking off Ben Roethlisberger five times.
But that's the consistent story around the Steelers, right?
