Leonard Fournette Caps Off Big Game With 90-Yard Touchdown

Five games in, the Steelers look average.

One could nearly see this coming. It also showcased the ground-and-pound attack the team has tried to establish this season.

Ben was 33-of-55 for 312 yards and five interceptions. Their five interceptions on the day, two sacks and two touchdowns on defense prove that this defense group is capable of making up for what it lacks in offense. Beating the Steelers at Heinz field is entirely another for a Jaguars team that seems to only show up every other week. Brown will likely be without Martavis Bryant on the other side as he's officially listed as doubtful. However, despite that fact, Jacksonville still wondered why the Steelers didn't run the ball more. Brown already has a pair of double-digit reception games that produced triple-digit yards. He's the general. He's going to come to work this week with a lot of intensity.

Fournette is the only player in the league who can stiff-arm Bud Dupree, outrun pursuit angles and then wave on a hit from Mike Mitchell mid-play. "But, we feel with the group that we have, if we keep getting better, stick to our game plan and do what we do well, we can compete with anybody". A beat up yellow sponge.

"He was saying I'm a rookie and stuff, and I'm not ready", Fournette said. I think we had a little bit of a bounce back last week, but how do you not get motivated for Baltimore? He just didn't see the lineman RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIM? So maybe that was why it got intercepted.

Again a dominating defensive performance by the Jaguars, not the result of lucky bounces. "I'm not playing well enough". Does he have doubts?

"September is kind of a feeling-out process", Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said. "I just took it and ran".

More on this big win throughout the week.

"For us more than anything it's not what happened". It's how we respond to it. Like I said, we're not your uncle's Jaguars. Blake Bortles will start at quarterback for Jacksonville, and because of that, expect Fournette to take the bulk of the burden offensively. "We did not do that today". They played a heck of a ball game.

The Jaguars closed the door with a 90-yard touchdown run by Fournette in the final minues of the game, giving him 181 yards on the day. The Steelers-Jaguars game begins at 1 p.m. and the Ravens play in Oakland beginning at 4:05 p.m.

The Jaguars are stellar in pass coverage, but haven't faced an attack quite like the one they are about to.

It was like Haley just assumed Big Ben would flip a switch and be a magical passer just because he was back in Heinz Field.

The Jacksonville Jaguars spent the first month of the season looking equal parts awesome and bad, taking one step toward respectability immediately followed by a baffling step back.

Unfortunately there was no help this time.

And with all that, somehow, the loss still feels worse. While Fowler isn't considered a starter, he continues to get as much time as starter Yannick Ngakoue.
