Jacksonville Jaguars Intercept Roethlisberger FIVE Times

Which Steeler do you want on the Jaguars

It was not a good day for Pittsburgh Steelers players nor the fans as they watched Ben Roethlisberger complete two touchdowns to the wrong team and added three more just to cap off a bad day. Linebacker and core special teams player Lerentee McCray (knee) is out.

Max McCaffrey, whom the Jaguars signed off New Orleans' practice squad on September 12, has played in the last three games mainly on special teams and does not have a catch. The former LSU star was electric against the Steelers Sunday, helping to alleviate the pressure on Blake Bortles, along with a defense that intercepted Ben Roethlisberger five different times.

Situation: Leading 3-0 in the first quarter, the Steelers had second-and-10 from their 46.

"As I've said many times, I [couldn't] care less about my numbers", Bortles said. "Soon as I leave you guys, my kids are probably standing in the hallway, and it'll be easier to forget it when I get out to them".

Roethlisberger: "I don't remember which one".

Wentz was 21 of 30 for 304 yards, four touchdowns and one interception.

Of course, Bell is also to blame for the running game not getting such heavy usage. They went three-and-out and gained no yards. "I've had bad games before, had bad stretches". He'll need to be equally capable in the passing game to get involved in the offense this week. While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don't think it's too much to ask our NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem.

Cincinnati (2-3) was the first team this season to score more than 17 points against the Bills. "You just find a way to move on and play better".

The Jaguars closed the door with a 90-yard touchdown run by Fournette in the final minues of the game, giving him 181 yards on the day. But inexplicably Bell (15-47 rushing) carried it just six times in the second half and Roethlisberger (33-of-55 for 312 yards, five INTs and a 37.8 rating) ended up with 55 pass attempts. They crushed Baltimore in London, then crashed back to earth by falling to the New York Jets in overtime.

"It's going to be tough, like every year, but we're just trying to gel together as a team", Koyack said.

Roethlisberger and Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said publicly that Brown's sideline outburst was unfortunate, and Brown has since apologized for slamming a cooler and slapping a coach's hand away from him.

Earlier this week on NFL Thursday Night Football, the New England Patriots won a tight game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to get themselves back to a winning record.

And since the Steelers weren't stopping the run, Leonard Fournette and Chris Ivory were making them pay. A year ago an ankle injury kept him out for three games at a similar juncture of the season. Ben Roethlisberger continued his solid, but unspectacular play, completing 18 of 30 passes for 216 yards, a touchdown and a pick.
