AFC Divisional Playoff Preview and Predictions: Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

One of the NFL season’s most shocking results was Jacksonville going into Heinz Field and hammering the Steelers 30-9 on Oct. 8. It wasn’t that the Jaguars won so much as how they won, intercepting Ben Roethlisberger five times and gashing what would end up as a top-10 run defense for 231 yards.

Can the Steelers pick themselves up after a tough loss to the Patriots?

Nothing says Christmas like a little football between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Houston Texans. The Steelers are coming off a crushing defeat at home against the Patriots in which they had a couple of chances to win and were denied by a stupid catch rule and a stupid quarterback decision. That game also saw the team lose their best wide receiver Antonio Brown for the next two weeks.

There are two more weeks left in the NFL season after this one, so nothing will be set in stone... but let’s be real: The top seed in the AFC and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs will be on the line Sunday when the Patriots visit the Steelers in Pittsburgh.

The NFL and NBC had to be hoping that scheduling the Steelers and Ravens on a Sunday night in December would produce a game with AFC North title implications. They haven’t quite got that this week, but this game has plenty to draw the eyes of fans.

It’s one thing to dominate a team on your home field, as the Packers had done to the Lions at Lambeau up until the last couple years; or to just own a bad team overall, as the Patriots continue to do to the Bills. But what the Steelers have done to the Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium is getting ridiculous.

Heading into the season, some had this week’s Sunday night game pegged as a Super Bowl preview. And through five weeks, it looked like the Steelers and Packers were both certainly championship contenders. Then Oct. 15 arrived, and these teams went in opposite directions.

 

Thanksgiving Day: Minnesota Vikings vs. Detroit Lions Preview and Prediction

Thanksgiving Day: Minnesota Vikings vs. Detroit Lions Preview and Prediction

So much has changed since the Vikings and Lions met on Oct. 1 in Minnesota. After a 14–7 Detroit win dropped Minnesota to 2–2, it looked like the NFC North might turn into a two-team race between the 3–1 Lions and 3–1 Packers. After all, those teams had Matthew Stafford and Aaron Rodgers, respectively.

Since an ugly overtime loss to Chicago, Pittsburgh has won three of four. Meanwhile, Detroit has lost three of four since a 2–0 start. That doesn’t bode well for the home team when the Steelers and Lions meet Sunday night at Ford Field.
