Jaguars vs. Steelers Point Spread: NFL Week 5 Odds, Prediction”

Lee, a starting wide receiver in the Jaguars' first four games this season, was not among seven inactive players announced shortly before the team's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh Sunday. Bell appeared to be on a one-man mission to get the Steelers offense back on track.

When Barry Church returned the second pick-six on consecutive drives to go up 20-9, the Jaguars could have gotten comfortable and taken their foot off of the gas. Further, as charted by Football Outsiders, they are especially stingy against their opponents' No. 1 receivers, on average limiting them to only 32.6 yards per game. I'm looking at the weather projections for Sunday and I see 80 degrees, humidity and some stormy skies in Pittsburgh for our home game against the Jags. After admitting that the coaches probably outsmarted themselves last week, the Jaguars were dedicated to the running game.

"At a time when so many Americans our inspiring our nation with their courage, resolve and resilience, now, more than ever, we should rally around our flag and everything that unites us".

Lee was injured in the Jags' Week 4 overtime loss to the New York Jets when he was tackled by linebacker Demario Davis in the fourth quarter.

One came when Jets running back Bilal Powell ran for a 75-yard touchdown during the first quarter.

Once again, the Pittsburgh Steelers game Sunday will not be televised in Lancaster County. Powell initially ran for a short gain before he fell to the ground, realized he wasn't touched and won a long race to the end zone. We saw exploitation of Detroit's, still, inability to cover tight ends with Dickson. We have to be disciplined to the point where we're not trying to do too much. They capped it off with a Leonard Fournette 90 yard touchdown, the longest such TD by an opposing running back since 1972.

Bortles completed 8-of-14 passes for 95 yards and the interception.

The Jaguars (2-2) have been up and down to start the season. Chris Reed is also an important player for the offense in the game against the Steelers as the first right guard backup.

On a third-and-8 at the 11, Roethlisberger rolled right but threw incomplete to Bryant. Their defense, however, is allowing 18.5 points and 312.5 yards per game. Having him play well will be key against the Jaguars and help take pressure off quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

In the past two weeks, the answer has been a resounding no.

The Steelers finally gave their bellcow back, Le'Veon Bell, a workload commensurate with his ability in last week's 26-9 rout of the Baltimore Ravens - and Bell broke out in a big way, racking up 186 total yards and a pair of touchdowns.

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Brown was upset with Roethlisberger and the team over the way they handled the national anthem before their game against the Chicago Bears in Week 3. "You've got to knuckle up".
