Jaguars vs. Steelers Point Spread: NFL Week 5 Odds, Prediction

NFL Predictions Week 5: Jacksonville Jaguars at Pittsburgh Steelers Picks, Predictions, and Odds 10/08/17

He did lead the Steelers on a field-goal drive.

Pittsburgh hasn't looked "great" per se, but they have played well enough to be 3-1. They now lead the league in sacks, with Campbell's five and a half leading the way.

Rookie Leonard Fournette, all 228 pounds of him, and 223-pound Chris Ivory have combined for 403 rushing yards in Jacksonville's first four games.

The Jags picked off the veteran Pittsburgh quarterback an astounding FIVE times - and returned two of them for touchdowns.

The Jaguars have benefited from both of these offseason additions.

Salman to discuss Syria in Russian Federation
During his four-day trip, the king and Putin are expected to discuss the global oil market and the situation in the Middle East. Both Russia and Saudi Arabia rely heavily on oil revenues and were hit by the slump in world energy prices.

Reed is part of the contingency plan for the Jaguars with their starting center Brandon Linder out with an illness.

The Jacksonville Jaguars were involved in a wild, entertaining game against the Jets this past Sunday, but couldn't quite pull it out as they lost in OT. Backup defensive ends Dawuane Smoot and Dante Fowler Jr. are a nice compliment to the starters. They would have beaten Jacksonville with that. If the Jags' run defense continues to allow big runs, Bell and the Steelers could be in for a very big day. It was unfortunate to only see him get fifteen carries. Terrell Watson may get a few handoffs outside of short yardage situations as well. A good performance from Bell will be key to improving the chances of the Steelers against the Jaguars. Fortunately for the Ravens (2-2), there is only one unbeaten team in the National Football League - the Kansas City Chiefs - and only three teams in the AFC have one loss.

The Steelers offensive line has given up seven sacks and 19 quarterback hits this season. Smith-Schuster is a mismatch for the linebackers and safeties, and Roethlisberger will take advantage of that. They would have an increased role on offense against the Steelers if Lee can't play. But that means the Steelers have to stop Fournette. However, their run defense is allowing 165.5 yards per contest. Fournette expanded his role in the offense, catching four passes for 59 yards and a touchdown. Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier ripped a ball out of Jaguars tight end James O'Shaughnessy's hands.

Bortles has limited options in the passing game. Hopefully, when needed, Bortles can get the ball to Marcedes Lewis as a deep threat and use Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns for the safer throws, similarly to how he did against the Baltimore Ravens.

The Steelers' offense couldn't recover as Roethlisberger finished with a passer rating of 37.8, his worst at Heinz Field since a 30.7 rating against the Cincinnati Bengals early in the 2006 season.
