It’s finally here — Sunday game day and the Jacksonville Jaguars (2-2) are set to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers (3-1) for Week 5 of the 2017 NFL season. Even though the win-loss record is about what we expected from the beginning of the season, absolutely nothing else is...
The defense is among the best in the NFL, this team leads the league in sacks, the offensive line is one of the best allowing just three sacks through four games, and Blake Bortles is playing like a literal garbage can (okay, we expected that last one).
