6 takeaways from the Jaguars 30-9 win vs. Steelers

Which Steeler do you want on the Jaguars

So they needed to try and find themselves as they headed to Heinz Field in Week 5 to do battle with the always unsafe Pittsburgh Steelers. Eli Rogers, who emerged as a solid No. 3 slot receiver last season, fumbled in Week 3 on special teams and has been in coach Mike Tomlin's doghouse since, pressing rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster into those duties.

His 37.8 passer rating was his worst since he had a 37.8 against Buffalo on December 11 of last season. But Cam Newton had a great game, leading the Panthers to a 27-24 victory and making a clutch throw on the team's final drive to hold off a 14-point rally by the Lions in the fourth quarter. Roethlisberger's statement could fuel rumors that this could be his a year ago with the Steelers and might retire at the end of the season. The game was so bad that after the game the former two time SuperBowl victor stated: "Maybe I don't have it anymore". Fournette took a hand-off from quarterback Blake Bortles at about the 6, took two long strides and left his feet near the 4 and sailed over the line of scrimmage for a touchdown. With the Jaguars poor rush defense I would have thought the Steelers game plan would have incorporated the running game more. If it means winning games, then run the wishbone, the Wing-T, or the veer, Bortles said. He has completed 61.5 percent of his passes (120 of 195) for 1,269 yards and six touchdowns, with seven interceptions. "I've had bad games before, had bad stretches". Their offense has sputtered at times this year, and it has resulted in close games, and even a loss to the rebuilding Chicago Bears. Had good ones, too.

Throwing just 14 passes in yesterday's 30-9 win, Jacksonville threw the least of any National Football League team in any game this year or last year.

The Jaguars opportunistic defense set them up, when Ramsey intercepted Roethlisberger and returned it to the Steelers 47-yard line. The Jaguars also came in last in rushing yards allowed, giving up an average of 165 per game. At the end of the year, we'll look at it and see where it's at.

Trump blasts media coverage of Puerto Rico
The praise for Puerto Rico's governor continued a theme from Saturday when the president praised the work of Gov. Trump insisted Friday that his administration was doing an "incredible job" with relief efforts.

When you take in all the factors - including the Jaguars' aspirations this season and the lingering memory of a disappointing loss to the New York Jets last week - a strong argument can be made that Sunday was the Jaguars' victory since ... since ...

A week after a sideline outburst generated headlines and drew Roethlisberger's ire, Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown caught 10 passes for 157 yards.

The Jags come into this game mostly healthy.

It came against a team that won three of its first four games. With Smith-Schuster, McDonald and Hunter as newcomers and with Bryant still struggling, Roethlisberger only has chemistry with Brown and Bell. He was the only player that happened to suit up and show up for the Steelers.
