Prediction:

The Steelers are coming off an emotional win at home against the Ravens, but it was a game they easily could have lost. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been banged up with an injured hand and shoulder, which doesn’t bode well as he faces another tough defense this week in Jacksonville. Speaking of the Jaguars, their past two wins haven’t been pretty, but they’ve gotten the job done and appear to be back on track. They’ve also played the Steelers incredibly well over the past couple years and we love the home field advantage. As long as that running game continues to make progress with an injured offensive line, Jacksonville should edge Pittsburgh out this weekend. We predict the Jaguars over the Steelers 24-20.
