Jaguars threw an National Football League season-low 14 passes on Sunday

The issue with the passing game was seemingly the fact that Roethlisberger had run out of reliable targets outside of Brown.

For the Steelers to best all of those team, better play from Roethlisberger is a must. But the Steelers still had a 9-6 lead after three field goals, at which point Bell had a tidy 12 rushes for 45 yards and Roethlisberger had thrown 31 times.

When Roethlisberger didn't throw to a wide open Brown, the receiver reportedly felt the quarterback was intentionally not looking his way because of the tension between the two.

"As I've said many times, I [couldn't] care less about my numbers", Bortles said. It would have been unthinkable for the Ravens to drop two straight games, including one to the Steelers and for them to still have a shot at holding the AFC North crown. The game was so bad that after the game the former two time SuperBowl victor stated: "Maybe I don't have it anymore". Jacksonville ran on 37 of its 51 plays, as quarterback Blake Bortles passed just 14 times, completing eight for 95 yards and a touchdown.

What was the offensive coordinator thinking with a pass-happy game plan that unraveled quickly against a Jaguars unit that ranked No. 1 in pass defense going into Week 5?

Newton was mostly great, too, throwing with confidence to not only Devin Funchess and Kelvin Benjamin but TE Ed Dickson, whose 175 yards was the most by an National Football League tight end since _. "I've had bad games before, bad stretches".

On offense, all of the starting offensive linemen for this game played its entirety. The Steelers are one of the hardest teams in the league to beat at home, and as a less-talented team, the Jaguars come to Heinz Field with a major disadvantage.

Here are some highlights from the game, along with three stars, updates on the betting lines and who the teams are playing next week. When his desperation heave to the end zone was snagged by Gipson with 3:16 left, it gave him five on the day, the most by a Steelers quarterback since Mark Malone did it against Cleveland 30 years ago.

Yes, that happened. And because it did, the Jaguars went a long way toward putting a disappointing loss to the New York Jets a week before behind them - and an even longer way toward making it really believable that good things could lie ahead. "Let's just wait and see where we're at when the season is over". The game takes place from Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and has a scheduled start time of 1 p.m. ET. Previous year an ankle injury kept him out for three games at a similar juncture of the season. Brown caught 10 passes for 157 yards. According to La Canfora, Brown "has felt strongly the urge to kneel in protest during the anthem", and when he was not targeted on the Week 4 play, the receiver "took it personally and believed it was related to his recent dispute with Roethlisberger".
