Dumb move by the Steelers here to go onside kick here I think. We will see how it plays out.

Why would they kick an onside? Haven't had a successful one since in forever according to announcers. I thought they would try to pin them deep, keep them from scoring.

This one is a good one. That 10-3 game let week was hard to watch but this one has been great. If the Jags survive this and can combine this week’s offensive performance with last week’s defensive performance they have a fighting chance against the Pats.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. The Jags need to close this one out first.

So dumb by Tomlin. A coach that should be fired but won't be.

Not only that they couldn't even execute it without also giving up a 5 yard penalty.

Wow, a lot of yellow in those stands.

About 15 of the remaining 20 fans at the end were booing the Steelers off the field.

Great game although the onside kick hurt the Steelers in the end and the Jaguars final score (field goal) saved their butts.

Patriots fan here since Grogan, but have some loyalty for our home town Jaguars since they came to Jacksonville in 95. Going to be an interesting matchup next week!

Coughlin did a great job this year!

Pittsburgh pulled two horseshoes out of their butts on those 2 4th down TD passes. When teams are ready for an onside kick they success rate is below 20%. They had 2 timeouts and the two minute warning. You kick that off and try and pin them deep then force a 3 and out.

By and large this Steelers team has under accomplished.

Well, the door got closed all right. Whew!

Yesterday Nick Foles answered his critics. And today it's Blake Bortles.

But ya gotta credit Ben for keeping the Steelers in it, those td passes weren't lucky tosses. The two long td's on 4th down? Great great throws.
