How Bell and Fournette run will be intriguing considering the Steelers and Jaguars boast the league's two best pass defenses. Maybe Roethlisberger doesn't have any questions about whether he can still play the game at a reasonably high level.
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.
"He was saying I'm a rookie and stuff, and I'm not ready", Fournette said.
Koyack chopped down Steelers' linebacker T.J. Watt to spring Fournette for a 12-yard gain early in the fourth quarter, which ignited a long drive that ended with a field goal and all but exhausted any hopes of a Steelers' comeback.
Roethlisberger: "I don't remember which one". After giving a game away last week to the New York Jets, the Jaguars went into Pittsburgh on Sunday and took the Steelers to the woodshed in a 30-9 beatdown.
Enough had become enough, and in the wake of a four-game losing skid, the offense turned the ball over to Bell and the running game for the final 10 games of the year, including the playoffs, until he went down with an injured groin. "I've had bad games before, bad stretches".
Yes, the second half had a lot to like - and through five games there's a lot to like about this season and this team. While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don't think it's too much to ask our NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem. "You just find a way to move on and play better". If the offense turns in a performance resembling what they showed today, the Steelers chances of avoiding a second consecutive loss are slim to none.
Fournette iced the game with an explosive 90-yard run that probably helped fantasy owners win a game or two. "We'll try to enjoy it, but then it's back to work, because we still have things to clean up". "We just need to focus on our responsibilities and make sure we handle it". We win one game.
The Steelers entered the season thinking they had a realistic shot at winning the Super Bowl after losing in the AFC Championship Game to the New England Patriots last season. Bryant has been one of Ben Roethlisberger's top targets this season with 10 catches for 183 yards and one touchdown.
If you looked at just Weeks 1 and 3 of the 2017 National Football League season, you might think the Jacksonville Jaguars are Super Bowl contenders. According to La Canfora, Brown "has felt strongly the urge to kneel in protest during the anthem", and when he was not targeted on the Week 4 play, the receiver "took it personally and believed it was related to his recent dispute with Roethlisberger".

The touchdown came after Kansas State's Matthew McCrane missed a 53-yard field goal attempt that bounced off the left upright. With a huge non-conference win under their belt, the Sooners looked to be a real contender for the College Football Playoff .
