Should Jaguars defense be concerned after Steelers escape?

Derrick Henry quiet in loss to Patriots

One person who probably wishes Ramsey would have toned down his Super Bowl prediction is Jaguars coach Doug Marrone.

"When you start looking ahead and start talking about you want to face this team in the AFC championship", he went on, "not only are you not focused on that game, but you're not showing the respect to the opponent you're facing".

The Steelers (13-4) were shellshocked from the opening series as the Jaguars marched 66 yards on eight plays. "It's disrespectful. It's stupid as f--, to be honest with you". During the week, when y'all brought the Mike Mitchell thing to me, that was the first time I heard about it. He has some valuable experience against the Patriots, having beaten them in Super Bowls twice as coach of the New York Giants. "It will be a great challenge for us obviously".

"I think that kind of got us in the first game because the Jacksonville Jaguars, they're normally not a good team but those guys got players this year".

Nonetheless, they stood behind their outspoken and ultra-talented defender.

The Jaguars (12-6) jumped out to a 21-0 lead and it looked like they'd cruise to another blowout victory, just as they did on October 8 when they intercepted Ben Roethlisberger five times in a 30-9 win. "What's he going to say? We knew we were going to have to be efficient, hold on to the ball for a little bit, so we did it". "It's not like he ain't saying nothing that's not true". Roethlisberger's 19-yard pass to Le'Veon Bell - his third touchdown pass of the afternoon - made it 28-21. Now, they'll get the Patriots with Fournette likely not at 100 percent, with a chance to go to the Super Bowl.

Seven other colleges will have alumni coming in from the AFC side of the bracket regardless of the final score of the Jaguars-Patriots game - Clemson, Georgia, Illinois, Miami (Florida), Ole Miss, Wisconsin and Wyoming. "I'm happy to be able to come here and do this with this team". "I don't even watch sports". Calais Campbell and Marcell Dareus are two of the best defensive lineman in the NFL. But losing after big talk reminds the guard of an National Football League truism.

Roethlisberger said on his weekly radio show Tuesday morning that he won't commit to football past 2018 but stressed continuity for players and coaches in the offense is key.

"I feel like they took us lightly. I'm excited to come back next year", Roethlisberger said in response to a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette report that he's told teammates he's open to playing three more seasons. You've got to step up on that line and see who's better. That's why we're not big in trash-talking. All we did was do what we do every week, that's play ball and create takeaways and score. Earlier this year, Buffalo fans donated generously to the Andy Dalton Foundation after Cincinnati stunned Baltimore and sent the Bills to the playoffs for the first time in 18 years. We do what works for us.

And now they have a matchup against the NFL's most successful franchise over the past two decades.

Bryant noted the team already had enough talent to win a title and said the team made careless mistakes in not finishing against the Jaguars.

First of all, New England is a heavy pass offense.

"It's just a continuation". We're just going to smack you in the mouth, just like we did today. (Blake Bortles) keeps proving people wrong, and we just keep going on it and pounding people.
