Titans, Jaguars aim to show they're the real deal in AFC

He returned to practice Monday and remains in line to appear in his 10th playoff game Sunday at Heinz Field.

Former Steelers tailback DeAngelo Williams saw the solution, too; he told Steve Gorman of Fox Sports Radio that if "Haley doesn't run the damn ball like he should have the first time, they should fire his ass".

Steelers safety Mike Mitchell, who has been outspoken about a number of topics this season, already has his team booked for the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots.

"You get paid to play the regular season; this is for free". Roethlisberger especially will be looking to make up for his performance in the week five debacle. Obviously offensively we didn't play the way we wanted to play. "We want to beat those guys with run, play-action, drop-back passing, whatever it is and keep those guys off balance". After watching the Jaguars on Sunday, the Steelers defense absolutely has no excuse to allow big plays to this offense.

The Steelers defense is allowing splash plays at an alarming rate.

Hargrave, PFF's 48th rated interior lineman, had his best game of the season against the Jaguars (Week 5), compiling 10 tackles in the game. Pittsburgh will aid his cause this time with great run/pass balance, but the Jaguars' Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye are the best cornerback tandem in the NFL.

All week long all you've heard about is how the Jaguars defense dominated the Steelers back in October and how Pittsburgh has to be wary of that happening again. He spoke publicly after last season of his contemplation of retirement, only to return for a 14 season as quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers and take another shot, at age 35, at a third Super Bowl triumph. He bounced back from that awful performance to go on an eight game win streak finishing 12-3 as a starter this year.

While Fournette was racking up 181 yards and two touchdowns on the ground, Bell was given just six second-half carries, despite reeling off his game-high 15-yard carry on the first drive of the second half.

Just when it looks like Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is healthy again, he faces another issue that kept him off the practice field Friday.

But a Jaguars injury may have just as much to do with Steelers' success as Antonio Brown's ability to play at a high level. Foles does not possess a high floor that I typically target in cash games, but his upside and low-cost salary makes him attractive in GPPs. We all know of Blake Bortles. His 500 yards against the Ravens salvaged a win and his heroics almost knocked off the Patriots despite a lapse of judgement on their last play of the game.

Against San Francisco and Tennessee, Bortles threw a combined two touchdowns and five interceptions.

Friendly wagers are being placed between fans of both teams, including the folks at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium and the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens.

Bortles acknowledged after the victory over the Bills that it's "usually not ideal for a quarterback" to have more rushing yards than passing yards in a game. Bortles somehow drew a CBS interview after throwing for just 87 yards in a 10-3 wild card win over Buffalo.

If the Steelers' defense can pressure him, Bortles will continue to struggle and it will likely cost his team the game.
