AFC Divisional Playoffs: Three things to watch in Jaguars-Steelers

Coverage of this game airs on CBS beginning at 1:05 pm ET from Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, PA.

Although the Steelers were thrashed 30-9 by the Jaguars in October, they don't appear too concerned about having to face the Jaguars again.

The ROAR of the Jaguars cheerleaders and Jaxson de Ville were also at the pep rally to pump up the crowd ahead of Sunday's AFC Divisional Round matchup. If Jacksonville struggled to move the ball against Buffalo, I shudder to think of what will happen in the cold weather at Heinz Field, so I'll lay the touchdown with the Steelers here.

Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell was third in the National Football League in rushing with 1,291 yards but he ran the ball just 15 times totaling 47 yards in the first meeting with the Jags.

"Just get the numbers straight, exactly where we want them". "We gave them two touchdowns". If Hilton blitzes, Hurns is more than savvy enough to be quarterback Blake Bortles' hot read. "There are a lot of Jags fans going up and they're going up for the sole objective to bring back a win and to support the team strong". Bell is a star in the running game as well as in the passing game and as a blocker. Not to mention, a league-leading 109.5 yards per game.

In early episodes of The Good Place, Jacinto's character passes himself off as a Buddhist monk who has taken a vow of silence, but he is later revealed to be an incredibly dopey DJ from Jacksonville.

"You have to treat every game like it could be your last because you never know when it is", Roethlisberger said this week when he met with reporters. They ran for 155 yards in a 10-3 victory against the Bills, but more than half of those came from Bortles. The Jaguars held their opponents to 15 points or less in six of nine games they played outside of Jacksonville. It's a little bit faster each game. You don't want him to hurt you with his feet. "So hopefully we can use that experience to my advantage". Still, the Jaguars won their first playoff game in a decade on Sunday. The Steelers win by double digits over the Jaguars. Fournette rushed for 181 yards, including a 90-yard touchdown run, in the first meeting against the Steelers. This is the type of defense that can beat the Steelers or the Patriots or well anyone for that matter.

That win put Jacksonville above.500 and matched their win total from the previous season. Passed for 3,687 yards & has 3,500+ pass yards in each of past 3 seasons. Meanwhile, Big Ben had a bit of a down year and his top receiver, Antonio Brown, is still fighting back from a calf injury. Cole finished with 748 receiving yards. Ryan Shazier played in the Week 5 matchup, but the job is now in the hands of a rotating group of linebackers including Vince Williams, L.J. LB TELVIN SMITH led team with 11 tackles & had FF last week. "It could be another one of those games or it could be you go up there and throw it 50 times".

In Week 5 against Jacksonville, AB would rack up 157 yards on 10 catches. That's what Buffalo did last week, and the rookie managed just 57 yards. Also, the rookie had a career-high 28 carries. Bortles had been much more productive through the air during a three-game stretch from December 3 through December 1, when he completed a combined 71.4 percent of his passes (65-for-91) for 903 yards with seven touchdowns and no interceptions.

Tag, you're it, Blake Bortles.
