The Steelers Offense Continues to Struggle against the Jaguars

Jags and Steelers enter Week 5 as two of the top penalized teams

Right now Jacksonville will have to settle for one that they believe makes a statement that their best start since 2010 is hardly a fluke.

Following a Carolina three-and-out, the Lions pulled to within 27-24 with 3:22 remaining on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Stafford to Fells.

Roethlisberger finished with a passer rating of 37.8, his worst at Heinz Field since a 30.7 rating against Cincinnati early in the 2006 season. The former LSU star was electric against the Steelers Sunday, helping to alleviate the pressure on Blake Bortles, along with a defense that intercepted Ben Roethlisberger five different times. Big Ben turned some heads with one particular comment though, telling reporters gathered around him that "maybe I don't have it anymore". "I've had bad games before, bad stretches".

Colts running back Marlon Mack, who ran 22 yards for a third-quarter touchdown, scampered 35 yards to the San Francisco 34-yard line to set up Vinatieri's game-winning field goal. The Jaguars also came in last in rushing yards allowed, giving up an average of 165 per game.

The Jaguars came into the game wanting to pound the ball on the ground, as the Steelers were second in the league in pass defense but 21 against the run. Finishing the game 8-of-14 for 95 yards and an interception that has to be blamed on tight end James O'Shaughnessy, Bortles followed the game plan and kept his team in the game.

"Growing up in Oil City, of course I was a Steeler fan", an elated Koyack said after Sunday's victory. "He was pounding the ball, and when he got his opportunity to show how fast he is, it was very impressive to go (90 yards)". The offensive line is underachieving. The 3-2 team's other captain, apart from the veteran quarterback, Heyward added, "Seven's done too much not to".

Rookie running back Leonard Fournette carried the ball 28 times for 181 yards and two touchdowns as the Jaguars improved to 3-2.

In a division that has seemed to be up for grabs since Peyton Manning left for Denver, Jacksonville has been the offseason favorite to turn it around as of late.

The deficit forced the Steelers to throw more, but it's nearly as if an offense waiting to experience a passing-game explosion like old times grabbed for glory Sunday, to spectacular failure.

"You'll have to ask coach [offensive coordinator Todd] Haley that at his press conference on Thursday", guard Ramon Foster said. "Let's just wait and see where we're at when the season is over".

It came against a team that won three of its first four games. However, they haven't consistently lived the part in this season. "It's an honor to play at Heinz Field against the Steelers, because when I was growing up, Steeler football was everything".

The two teams have met in the playoffs once, on January 5, 2008.

"We just need to play better", defensive end Cameron Heyward said.
