    Not sure how much it was "fixing" as it was punishment for the Cleveland game where they gave up long pass plays of 58, 56 and 54 yards.

    I think the whole thing is overblown. I did a break down of each game of 40+ yard plays since week 5 (wouldnt want to offend Scribe) and compared it to Jax and came up with:

    Steelers 22
    Jax 12

    Big difference, I was like yikes thats not good but when you take into account 4 were by NE and 3 by Cleveland in the last game of the season, suddenly it doesnt look so bad sitting at 15. Not to mention 2 more by Stafford.

    If Jags win, it wont be because of Bortles. Brady is the QB to worry about in our quest to reach the SB. Didnt have Haden for the first matchup though, that will help.

    Have to take care of Jax first. Protect the football Ben, only chance Jax has.

    Yeah we have:

    The Pittsburgh Steelers have ruled out Pro Bowl running back Le'Veon Bell for Saturday night's AFC wild-card playoff game against the Ravens, the team announced.

    Bell has a hyperextended knee and hasn't practiced all week after getting hurt on a low tackle by Cincinnati Bengals safety Reggie Nelson last Sunday.
