Jacksonville Jaguars vs Pittsburgh Steelers live stream. Jaguars vs. Steelers: 3 defensive keys to victory, Pittsburgh Steelers CB Artie Burns (knee) expects to play vs. Jacksonville Jaguars.
Once I just make it through the week as healthy as I can and be prepared for Sunday,” Burns told pennlive.com before Thursday’s practice. “I’m about to get some treatment right now and get ready for Sunday.” Burns started every game for the Steelers this season and joined Joe Haden and Mike Hilton as a respected cornerback threesome. Burns had one interception this season. If Burns is unable to play, rookie Cameron Sutton will take his place in the starting lineup.
The Steelers have had a season full of challenges and adversity and successfully faced them all. And kind of like our defense has played all year, they were incredible. Early this season, the offense was in an incredible rut and there was concern after the Week 5 matchup as to just how competitive this team could be with an average offense. Since the Jacksonville game, Roethlisberger has returned to being one of the NFL’s top passers. Roethlisberger threw a career-high five interceptions – two that were returned for touchdowns – and was sacked twice in a 30-9 loss on October 8. Antonio Brown should be back and the question is how will he perform.
When the Pittsburgh Steelers and Jacksonville Jaguars squared off earlier in the season, the Steelers defense held the Jaguars to 17 points. Unfortunately, that was enough, paired with two defensive touchdowns to finish off the Steelers 30-9. The Steelers’ defense let Jacksonville running back Leonard Fournette run all over them so it is a given that the defense focuses on him more. All the talk is about the injury to cornerback Artie Burns but it could be the injury to defensive lineman Stephon.
