Coverage of this game airs on CBS beginning at 1:05 pm ET from Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, PA. But remember the last time the Steelers dared an inaccurate passer to beat them in the postseason? He had three hits and four hurries in the wild card game against Buffalo.

Jacksonville beat the Steelers 30-9 in Pittsburgh earlier this season. It also alleviates some of the pressure off star running back Le'Veon Bell to be more effective in the running game. "Teams know what's going on when we step on the field".

He managed just 20 yards on six carries before leaving in the second quarter of a 36-17 loss to New England and spent the rest of the game watching from the sideline, helpless amid the blowing snow. We didn't have our A-game. On top of that, Blake Bortles could also have more success as a rusher with Shazier's speed out of the picture. It was enough to win both times, and I can't believe Bortles will be that atrocious in his second playoff game. "We want to be balanced". Their championship window, due to a young nucleus, remains open as long as Roethlisberger is under center.

Bell proved to be a clutch playoff performer in his first postseason exposure previous year, rushing for 167 and 170 yards against the Dolphins and Chiefs.

Early in the season, in Week 5, the Jaguars showed the world that they were nothing to mess with as they came into Heinz Field and had a crushing 30-9 victory over the Steelers.

Tomlin wasn't trying to diminish the Jaguars' regular-season accomplishments as a quarterback-smothering, ball-hawking defense. When asked about Bortles' game, Davis said, "He's mobile". He somehow managed to have more rushing yards, with 88, than passing yards, with 87, in a 10-3 triumph Sunday over the Buffalo Bills in the opening round of the playoffs.

"Really at the end of the day it was just a hard-fought game and that's what playoff football is, and we were able to get the win at home, which was big", said Marrone, who elaborated upon that point later in the press conference. A couple more? Or could it be as little as one more game? When you start talking about retiring, you're more than halfway there.

Hopefully, we can enjoy this weekend the same way and truly appreciate what we are watching.

It would not shock me one bit to see the Jaguars upset the Steelers here.

What makes the game even more intriguing and exciting for the Steelers and their fans is that wide receiver Antonio Brown, who missed the final two games of the regular season after suffering a partially torn calf against the Patriots in Week 15, is expected to play. But in a road matchup versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, it is pivotal that the group is as heavily equipped as it can be in the divisional round battle.

Central to the Steelers' game plan is Leonard Fournette and the Jaguars' running game. It will be up to Williams and the middle of the Steelers defense to make sure Fournette is less effective in the rematch.

The Jaguars quarterback has always been a punching bag for NFL fans, players and media who consider him on of the worst starters in the league.

"I'm sure just as any competitor would, when you go and have a bad outing or a hard, tough outing against a team, you want that revenge", Jacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles said.

Hunter, Tennessee's second-round selection in 2013, spent three seasons with the Titans before splitting previous year with Miami and Buffalo.
