It seemed like the Jaguars had everything figured out after their big Week 3 win against the Ravens, but their defense was embarrassed last week against a Jets offense led by Josh McCown. The Steelers on the other hand came up big offensively by putting up 26 points against the Ravens last week. Le’Veon Bell overcame his struggles he’s had in the beginning of the season coming up with 144 rushing yards and two touchdowns against the Baltimore.

With the Jags defense failing to contain the Jets offense, are they in for a nightmare matchup against this Pittsburgh offense?

Ben Roethlisberger, along with his work back in Le’Veon Bell and his outside weapons in Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant are looking to make the Jaguars defense look like a joke. Once this offense gets their rhythm going they became scary good.

The Jacksonville defense has been a roller coaster ride through the first four weeks. They started out great against the Texans in Week 1, but then came back to reality in Week 2 against the Titans. Fast forward to their game against the Ravens and just plain out embarrassed Joe Flacco. Now, they are coming off a disappointing performance against a Jets team that most thought were tanking this season.

This game can either be controlled by the Jags defense or it can get out of hand because the Steelers offense can be too powerful. The Jaguars are currently in the race to win the AFC South and if they can pick up a win against a tough Pittsburgh team this would put the Jags back in the conversation as a true contender for the postseason.
