NFL Predictions: Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Pittsburgh Steelers 10/8/17

09 October 2017

At 3-2, the Jaguars are on top of the AFC South, the latest they've led their division since they were in the AFC Central in 1998. Sometimes the Jaguars were looking at a Steelers team they'd like to be like, and other times the Steelers were looking at a Jaguars team that was beating them at their own game. The over/under total for the contest has been listed at 43 points. The Chiefs are very good and the Steelers have won the last two meetings, first a blowout at Heinz Field past year and then a playoff squeaker in an ice storm.

Roethlisberger hinted at retirement following a loss to New England in the AFC title game, but stressed he was "all in" when he ultimately chose to come back for a 14th season.

Bryce Harper brings Nats back to life with epic two-run homer
The final verdict was a dominating performance behind Kyle Hendricks , who absolutely shut down the Washington Nationals bats. Setup man Carl Edwards Jr . made easy work of the bottom of the eighth, striking out two and getting Bryce Harper to pop out.

Things were close, however, and the Buccaneers were pushing in the fourth, but ultimately came up short to ensure the Patriots would claim a confidence boosting road win and move to 3-2. Bell rushed for 144 yards and two TDs on 35 carries. On that run-centric drive, Fournette ran into the open field and waived the defender in to take the big hit.

OK, throw the penalty flag and accuse us of piling on, but Ben Roethlisberger's shortcomings need to be addressed again.

Newton's 3 TDs help Panthers beat Lions
In the third, the Panthers made it 27-10 after Newton's 31-yard touchdown pass to Benjamin and Gano's 44-yard field goal. For the second week in a row, the Panthers saw a big lead go away by allowing a pair of fourth-quarter touchdown drives.

That does not mean, however, this team can not have a successful season and get to where it wants to go, though many fans will be jumping off that bandwagon after yesterday's debacle. Pittsburgh is also 2-2 against the spread on the season, but 1-0 ATS at home. His return was supposed to boost an offense expected to be one of the NFL's best. Roethlisberger's statement could fuel rumors that this could be his a year ago with the Steelers and might retire at the end of the season. Brown had himself a big day, catching 10 balls for 157 yards. Five. The Steelers scored just nine points on the day, while the Jaguars tallied two touchdowns - 13 points after a missed extra point - exclusively on Roethlisberger interceptions. He is questionable for today's game. In his past six home games, he has 1,899 passing yards (316.5 per game), 19 TDs and three INTs (a 121.1 rating). Receiver Jaelen Strong (hamstring) and safety Jarrod Wilson (shoulder) - both reserves - also will be game-day decisions. "I think this is a complete different ballclub compared to a year ago". The Steelers, in fact, drafted the leader of the new unit with the 31st pick a few months after that Super Bowl, and the rest of this defense was rebuilt along with Cameron Heyward.

Fournette, the Jacksonville Jaguars' hulking running back, kept pounding into Mitchell with legs churning. With the Steelers now trailing, 13-9, the Steelers all but forgot about trying to grind out a win even though more than 21 minutes remained in the game.

Nate moves out this evening, but more rain falls soon
Syracuse- Central New York will have a week of unsettled weather, starting off with the remains of Hurricane Nate Monday morning. Temperatures will stay relatively steady, in the mid 60s in the morning only making it to the low 70s in the afternoon.

The man designed with making the Pittsburgh Steelers go doesn't want to hear any of it. He got plenty of help, no doubt, and, yes, the two Pick 6's were tipped, but the problems go much deeper than that.
