Fournette, Jaguars make statement in win over Steelers

He is questionable for today's game. T.Y. Hilton responded from an very bad first half that included a pair of drops and a costly penalty to finish with a game-high 177 receiving yards. Bell accounted for 186 yards from scrimmage in the Steelers' win in Baltimore. Credit Bell and the defense in that one. He took the handoff from Blake Bortles and launched himself in the air at the 4. Through five weeks, his 75.8 passer rating is tied with Brian Hoyer for No. 28 in the league. Before the Steelers got their collective doors blown off by the Jacksonville Jaguars, word broke that the Gatorade-flipping tirade by Antonio Brown during last week's Steelers victory may have been because the All-Pro wide receiver felt he was being overlooked by his quarterback after their disagreement over the national anthem. Never taking his eyes off Brown, Roethlisberger threw the ball nonetheless and it had less than a zero percent chance of being completed, perfectly summing up the quarterbacks "WTF" afternoon.

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.

But with all of this raw talent coming of age, shouldn't there be a sense of excitement, particularly for this week when they'll all play together for the first time?

The Jaguars (2-2) have been up and down to start the season.

Yes, the second half had a lot to like - and through five games there's a lot to like about this season and this team. Instead, the offense has regressed but Bryant can only share part of the blame. Bortles is likely to feel the wrath of that pass rush before long, due to a lack of reliable receivers.

"I needed to put myself in the best position to contribute to the team", Koyack said of his upper-body strength.

Jacksonville Jaguars outside linebacker Telvin Smith (50) heads for the end zone after intercepting a pass from Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (7) and scoring a touchdown in the third quarter of an NFL football game, Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017, in Pittsburgh.

Star player Le'Veon Bell is back and in good form.

Situation: Leading 3-0 in the first quarter, the Steelers had second-and-10 from their 46. And that leader, rookie Kareem Hunt, is on the docket Sunday when the Steelers visit the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. "That is also a tribute to how well the offensive line played". Teammates were miffed past year when Gilbert was snubbed for Pro Bowl consideration. I still got a super bad taste in my mouth from that Chicago game.

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. This year, it's a bulky hamstring that's the culprit.

His bad game-play wasn't what had people talking after the game though, it was his attitude and how he basically admitted that he sucks now and just might be washed up.
