Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey limited in practice

Injury concerns over linebacker Paul Posluszny have proved unfounded

Pretty awesome defense and they will make some plays. The Steelers, who enter the game as the favorite, had an very bad game when they played the Jaguars in the regular season. The five interceptions are the most Big Ben has thrown in one game in his career.

The Titans and Jaguars want to have their say. Just the opportunity you get here is what it should mean to everybody and how special it is.

That explains why when asked how much the reputation of the Jaguars' standout defense would be elevated if they beat the Steelers at Heinz Field a second time Sunday in the AFC divisional playoff, Ramsey didn't offer much insight, saying: "Uh, we would go to the AFC championship game, that would be dope".

"We did beat them the first time, so to have all the confidence coming out of there is interesting", Jaguars DT Malik Jackson says. "This is what he wanted, so this is what he is going to get".

So while many will be expecting a blowout, I think this game will be a competitive one. That 2007 team finished the regular season 11-5 and accomplished a feat that this year's Jaguars squad hopes to replicate.

The NFL playoffs are in full swing, and the divisional round brings a much better week for daily fantasy football contests as opposed last weekend, which was a little weak to be honest.

"We do what we always do".

They might not fear Bortles like they do the game's best, but there's respect. Ben Roethlisberger? C'mon!

The Steelers were considered king of the AFC North Division and figured to breeze through to another divisional title.

But it was obvious that the Jaguars game was still haunting Roethlisberger, even this past week when the Steelers were idle. We're going into it with our plan and what we want to do and get a feel for the game and find out what we're thinking, what's working, what's going on. "I can't complain. I like where I am".

Having two of the top skill position players in the league in wide receiver Antonio Brown and running back Le'Veon Bell helps.

Six years and four days ago, the 8-8 Broncos hosted the 12-4 Steelers in the wild-card round. Part of that owes to Atlanta's impressive work in winning at the Los Angeles Rams last week.

Yes Nick Foles has a Pro Bowl on his résumé along with a start in the playoffs, but there is a reason why there was no competition between him and Wentz for the starting QB job.

Foles, though, has had some success in Philadelphia. We're just going to see what happens. "I've played this game a long time".

I'm going to be looking to pair Fournette with the Jags D/ST as much as possible for numerous same reasons. "When I play my best and I'm most comfortable, I just go out there and play". For the year, the Steelers gave up 201.1 yards a game through the air, though that number jumped to 234.2 yards a game in the five contests that he missed due to a fibula injury.

The Saints' RB tandem of Mark Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara wasn't quite in place yet, either.

Bortles went even lower in both categories in the Pittsburgh game with eight completions in 14 attempts. New England, Alabama, Giants under Coughlin, Vikings under Mike Zimmer, Jim Harbaugh and the Niners.

Tight end Marcedes Lewis, fullback Tommy Bohanon and defensive tackle Abry Jones practiced fully Thursday. It was also before running back Le'Veon Bell had fully shaken off the rust that had accumulated after sitting out of the entirety of Pittsburgh's training camp and preseason games; he had rushed for over 100 yards just once by that point and was held to 47 rushing yards on 15 carries.
