Red Zone Passes Against Jacksonville Were Ben Roethlisberger’s Call

The Pittsburgh Steelers broke into the red zone four times on Sunday against the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars.

Below are my notes and observations upon reviewing the second half of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The more astute observer might have noticed that the Pittsburgh Steelers had been more adventurous in recent weeks in terms of how they chose to employ fifth-year outside linebacker Jason Worilds on the field.

Brad Wing Must Find Week-To-Week Consistency

Last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, first-year punter Brad Wing’s meager 29-yard punt late in the game gave the Pittsburgh Steelers’ opponents the football on the defending team’s side of the field, on the 46-yard line.

Steelers Road Offense Could Use A Tuneup

If there’s been one consistent theme about this offense through the first five games of the season for the Pittsburgh Steelers, it’s that the end result will be inconsistent. Speaking strictly of the offense, the Steelers are now averaging exactly 20 points per game after putting up 100 points in total. But those points have […]

Preserving Antonio Brown’s Record Was Worth The Risk

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown caught his fifth pass of the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars yesterday with two minutes left to play, on first and 10 on the Jaguars’ 33-yard line with an eight-point lead.

Steelers Receiving Targets Concentrated On A Core Four
