Jaguars vs. Steelers: TV Schedule, Odds, Ticket Info, Game Time and More
Ten years and one week after they achieved a postseason triumph in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the Jacksonville Jaguars are back at Heinz Field for a divisional-round contest on Sunday.
In their last playoff appearance, the Jaguars went into Heinz Field and knocked off the Steelers on a Josh Scobee 25-yard field goal with 37 seconds left.
The major contributors on both sides have changed significantly since the 31-29 Jaguars wild-card victory on January 5, 2008, with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger being the only holdover.
Jacksonville has experienced success in Pittsburgh this season as well, with a Week 5 30-9 win boosting their confidence going into Sunday, but the Steelers are ready to prove that game was nothing more than a fluke. Date: Sunday, January 14
Time: 1:05 p.m. ET
Odds: Pittsburgh (-7.5); Over/Under: 41

Will Antonio Brown Have Same Success He Did in Week 5?
Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown had one of his best games of the season against the Jaguars despite quarterback Ben Roethlisberger throwing five interceptions.
Brown, who was declared healthy for Sunday’s contest earlier in the week, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, put up 157 receiving yards on 10 catches in a game in which he was targeted 19 times, which was his season high in targets.
The dynamic 29-year-old wideout eclipsed the 100-yard barrier on seven occasions in the regular season, with five performances over 150 yards, including a 213-yard output against the Baltimore Ravens on December 10.
Brown’s staggering numbers have come while JuJu Smith-Schuster has developed into a reliable target in his rookie season.
The Pittsburgh receivers put together the highest number of receiving yards among duos in the NFL, and their opponents on Sunday, Jalen Ramsey and A.J Bouye, had the best combined passer rating of cornerback duos, per NFL Network’s Aditi Kinkhabwala.
Ramsey recognized just how much of a challenge defending Brown will be for the second time this season, per John Reid of the Florida Times-Union:
“Great opportunity to see what I can do,” Ramsey said. “He’s an elite player, you know highly regarded by everybody honestly around the nation, maybe internationally. So yes, it’s going to be a challenge. We’re going have to be on our Ps and Qs and try to execute the game plan the best we can.”
The second-year player out of Florida State may not be lined up against Brown on every play, but when he is, he can’t give the Steelers playmaker any room to work in.
