Steelers vs. Jaguars: 6 keys to Pittsburgh beating Jacksonville
PITTSBURGH — The Jacksonville Jaguars have already beat the Pittsburgh Steelers this season.
Their dominant defensive front forced the Steelers into mistakes on offense, coughing up the ball. A steady drip of rushing yards kept the Jaguars in striking distance in terms of time of possession. Pittsburgh ran away from the run. And Jacksonville continued to capitalized as Ben Roethlisberger’s mistakes piled up to five interceptions and a 30-9 Jaguars victory.
Mike Tomlin said the Jaguars’ overall formula for winning hasn’t changed since. And if Pittsburgh is to advance to the AFC Championship game for a second year in a row, it will probably have to tick these six boxes:

Jacksonville has only won twice this season in games in which Bortles has thrown an interception. The Jaguars are just that possession-dependent.
