Marqise Lee catches 2 passes in Jaguars' Week 5 win

Jags and Steelers enter Week 5 as two of the top penalized teams

The Jaguars beat the Steelers with an old-school football offense on Sunday. The seemed galaxies away from those heady days in the aftermath of Roethlisberger's five-interception performance on 33-of-55 passing. Posluszny hit Roethlisberger in 1.9 seconds, impacting a throw that was behind McDonald and intercepted on a diving play by Ramsey, similar to the interception he made against Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco in London.

Prior to today's game, Roethlisberger hadn't had a multi-interception game this season. Ben Roethlisberger has yet to leave the field in 2017.

The good news for the Steelers is they have the potential to get all of it back on track. The game was so bad that after the game the former two time SuperBowl victor stated: "Maybe I don't have it anymore".

Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles went 8-for-14 for 95 yards, with no touchdowns and one interception.

The Pittsburgh Steelers dropped their game this week to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

But up to that point, the offense had clearly run through Bell as the focal point-not infrequently having more carries than Roethlisberger had completed passes, and sometimes even passes attempted-as the Steelers ran themselves back into relevance, rattling off nine consecutive victories. Maybe those oversights are due to Gilbert's habit of missing stretches of games.

"The latest wrinkle in the Seahawks" neverending struggle to create a functioning offense is the seven-lineman formation, with backup blockers like Matt Tobin entering the game to beef up the front line. 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. "We'll try to enjoy it, but then it's back to work, because we still have things to clean up". "Over the course of the game they were able to play in the manner in which they like to play, grind the clock and maintain possession of the ball". When his desperation heave to the end zone was snagged by Gipson with 3:16 left, it gave him five on the day, the most by a Steelers quarterback since Mark Malone did it against Cleveland 30 years ago.

"It's going to be tough, like every year, but we're just trying to gel together as a team", Koyack said.

The Jaguars have only two other healthy receivers who have caught a pass this season: undrafted rookie Keelan Cole (four catches) and veteran Arrelious Benn (one), whose main role is on special teams. No call, but Fowler did manage to affect Roethlisberger's throw to Brown, which sailed high.

It was a winning formula in the second half of last season, when he never attempted more than 36 passes during an eight-game winning streak. Bryant has been one of Ben Roethlisberger's top targets this season with 10 catches for 183 yards and one touchdown.
