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

Bell wonders if the Steelers were affected by the Jaguars' past failures entering that Week 5 matchup. Big Ben threw five interceptions and two were returned for touchdowns. That was the Jaguars' first victory in the series since beating the Steelers, 31-29, in an AFC wild-card game after the 2007 season. Defensively, there are very few teams that are better than Jacksonville.

The Jaguars also boast the best passing defense in the National Football League, holding opponents to 169.9 yards per game and leading the National Football League with 21 interceptions.

The Steelers do not care about Jacksonville's defensive prominence.

If and when Brown gets over his illness, Pittsburgh will enter this postseason far healthier than in years past.

Are The Steelers Distracted?

- A lot of drama going on.

"I feel great, especially not playing these last two weeks, not going to (training) camp earlier in the year", Bell says. Mitchell and the Pittsburgh Steelers are playing the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday in the AFC divisional game. Their ability to line up four imposing pass rushers is a daunting task for the opposition to block, but the Steelers do boast the best pass protection offensive line in the NFL.

The Jaguars ended that season as the No. 6 offense and a No. 10 defense, whereas the Jaguars ended this season as the No. 5 offense and the No. 2 defense, according to Pro Football Reference.

Now the Jaguars have a chance to replicate this result with their second win in Pittsburgh on the season. He finished the season with an 84.7 quarterback rating. He just wants to win, and if turning around and putting the ball in the belly of his backs 50 times a game is what's best, he's all for it.

"You have to treat every game like it could be your last because you never know when it is", Roethlisberger said.

"Guys, we just answer questions", Tomlin said.

The Jags defense must carry the team to victory, and they have the capability of doing so. The receiving corps has repeatedly been hit with injuries throughout the year.

Leonard Fournette had his breakout game against the Steelers, with 181 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries. The Steelers will load the box and dare Jacksonville to pass. But- but it's not- he had four 300 yard plus passing game. Tuitt and starting cornerback Artie Burns suffered injuries this week that could keep them out of the game Sunday.

Curry pumped up the crowd of fans by reminding them of Jacksonville's 30-9 win over the Steelers early in the season and was greeted with loud cheering.

For many, the opportunity was way too good to pass up.

Pittsburgh and Jacksonville's fire departments also placed a wager. Roethlisberger will need to be in rare form, eluding the Jags aggressive pass rush and delivering accurate passes to his weapons.

Pittsburgh also gets back receiver Antonio Brown, like Bell an All-Pro this season. And then he's got that big stud behind him.

PITTSBURGH - coordinator Todd Haley said he considers the 30-9 loss to the on October 8 a turning point for his offense.

The challenge for the Jaguars, who allowed only 24 sacks in the regular season, is ascertaining where the pressure is coming from.

For the Steelers, that often means making sure Bell is a vital part of the process.

That was Roethlisberger's worst day of the season.

The team that protects the ball better and the team that can capitalize on turnovers has an inside track to the AFC Championship.
