Steelers' Roethlisberger has five passes intercepted in loss to Jaguars

Steelers' Roethlisberger has five passes intercepted in loss to Jaguars

The Jaguars struggle to defend the run, which should open the door for the Steelers to follow a similar plan at Heinz Field.

Roethlisberger did throw for 312 yards, which was more than double the Jaguars' average of 147.0 a game. He had never thrown more than two touchdowns in an National Football League game.

He now has thrown seven interceptions this season against only six touchdown passes, and this was supposed to be the breakout year for the Steelers' offense with the return of wide receiver Martavis Bryant, who was suspended last season. The Steelers led 9-7 when Roethlisberger looked left for Brown.

That said, a loss by Houston against the Chiefs will place the Jaguars in sole possession of the division for the first time in a while. More likely, he's just offering the kind of answers that athletes offer when they just want to get out of there without causing too much of a distraction. Big Ben turned some heads with one particular comment though, telling reporters gathered around him that "maybe I don't have it anymore". Jacksonville ran on 37 of its 51 plays, as quarterback Blake Bortles passed just 14 times, completing eight for 95 yards and a touchdown. Sometimes the Jaguars were looking at a Steelers team they'd like to be like, and other times the Steelers were looking at a Jaguars team that was beating them at their own game. If it means winning games, then run the wishbone, the Wing-T, or the veer, Bortles said. In his past six home games, he has 1,899 passing yards (316.5 per game), 19 TDs and three INTs (a 121.1 rating).

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. I've had bad games before. "I don't know the answer to that one".

For both teams, the running game could be what carries them to victory. Through five games, Fournette has 466 rushing yards and five trips to the end zone. At the end of the year, we'll look at it and see where it's at. However, they haven't consistently lived the part in this season. Brown caught 10 passes for 157 yards. Two of those five interceptions were returned for touchdowns as the Jaguars cruised to a 30-9 victory. "We'll try to enjoy it, but then it's back to work, because we still have things to clean up".

A loss to the New York Jets last week showed how far the Jaguars have to go to become a solid run defense. The road doesn't get any easier either, as next week the Steelers travel to Kansas City to face the team they eliminated in the playoffs last season.

Roethlisberger and Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said publicly that Brown's sideline outburst was unfortunate, and Brown has since apologized for slamming a cooler and slapping a coach's hand away from him.
