Jacksonville Jaguars Daily: Ben Roethlisberger praises Jaguars defense

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports

Ben Roethlisberger now has praise for Jacksonville Jaguars defense -
Five interceptions and a Week 5 where he suffered a 30-9 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars was enough to make Ben Roethlisberger wonder aloud if he still had “it.”

You know, that special something that helped him to a 13-7 record in the postseason as a starter, three Super Bowl appearances and two rings.

5 things the Jacksonville Jaguars must do to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers -
The Jacksonville Jaguars narrowly escaped with a 10-3 victory against the Buffalo Bills on Wild Card Weekend, but thanks to outstanding defense, great punting (really) and Blake Bortles’ feet, the game never seemed to be in serious doubt for the Jaguars.

With that said, it is going to take a much better effort to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Divisional round. This is a different team since Jacksonville’s three-touchdown win over Pittsburgh in Week 5.

Jacksonville Jaguars run game sure doesn’t look like the best in the NFL -
The Jacksonville Jaguars had the No. 1 rushing attack in the NFL in 2017.

It sure doesn’t look like that now -- and coach Doug Marrone said it needs to quickly get better if the Jaguars are going to have a chance of beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in an AFC divisional game on Sunday.

Blake Bortles understands criticism of his play will likely “never stop” -
Blake Bortles’ first postseason victory came with a hefty dose of criticism, maybe even more than ever before.

The Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback handled it as well as he did Buffalo’s pass rush.

“It’ll probably never stop,” Bortles said Wednesday. “There’s people that think LeBron James sucks, so if that happens, I’m sure there will be a lot of people that always think I suck.”
