The Jaguars led 7-3 with 12:19 remaining in the first half. The Steelers slipped to 3-2. Yet, with kickoff coming up, they have exactly that. Takeaways led directly to the first three Jacksonville touchdowns Sunday.
Roethlisberger completed 33 of 55 for 312 yards and his career-high five interceptions, the most by a Pittsburgh quarterback since Mark Malone threw five against Cleveland in 1987. They have run the ball well behind Leonard Fournette, who has 285 yards and three scores.
That play might have been a fluke, but the Jaguars were just as bad later in the game when running back Elijah McGuire ran for a 69-yard touchdown.
The second came on the next possession, two plays after Roethlisberger was sacked for a 7-yard loss and one play after he was booed for trying an off-target shovel pass to tight end Jesse James.
He made an immediate impact during his rookie campaign, registering 26 catches for 549 yards and eight touchdowns. Jacksonville defensive lineman Abry Jones tipped it into the hands of Smith, who chugged 28 yards to put Jacksonville in front with 6:38 left in the period. That marked the first time in franchise history the Jaguars have registered two interception returns for a touchdown in the same game. Jacksonville free safety Tashaun Gipson got in on the fun with an interception later in the third quarter, and another in the fourth.
How can you watch the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Pittsburgh Steelers game? It's a ideal scenario for the Steelers to use all their running backs to wear down the Jaguars defense.
If the constant 300-yard games are a things of the past - and Roethlisberger's 312 yards Sunday marked his first 300-yarder in his last in 11 regular-season games, amusing enough - then winning with ball control and defense is the recipe. He provided an exclamation point on his team's most impressive road victory in ages with a 90-yard sprint in the final minutes.
After allowing more than 200 rushing yards in a 23-17 overtime loss two weeks ago at Chicago, the Steelers gave up runs of 50 and 23 yards on outside zone stretch plays last week despite limiting Baltimore to 82 rushing yards overall. Ramsey picked off the pass from Roethlisberger and ran the ball to the Pittsburgh 47-yard line.
A lot of attention has been paid to the Jaguars' offense, which was a major question mark following Blake Bortles' awful preseason and a season-ending injury to top receiver Allen Robinson.
