Steelers lose to Jaguars, 30-9

DMV Football Report Week 4: Baltimore falters again on Sunday, Washington falls on Monday Night Football

Jacksonville's win on Sunday featured numerous same elements the Steelers have relied on to win football games for years - with a strong defense and a powerful ground game.

"I believe in seven", said Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward, referring to Roethlisberger's jersey number.

Roethlisberger: "Which play was that?" He has posted a quarterback rating above 87 once this season and has not thrown for more than 250 yards yet.

With the Steelers facing the NFL's worst run defense, Le'Veon Bell carried nine times in the first half and had just 12 attempts when Ben Roethlisberger threw his first Pick 6.

The last Steelers quarterback to throw five interceptions in a game was Mark Malone in 1987 at Cleveland.

"I've been doing this a long time", he said. They would have an increased role on offense against the Steelers if Lee can't play.

"Maybe I don't have it anymore", he said offhandedly in response to one reporter's question.

Fournette and Jacksonville's defense were so dominant that quarterback Blake Bortles only attempted one pass in the second half.

The Jaguars come into the game with an even 2-2 record, which is enough to tie with the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans on the same record in the AFC South.

"I mean nobody was there", said Fournette, the youngest player to score on a run of at least 90 yards. They played a heck of a ball game. "I've had bad games before, had bad stretches".

The Jacksonville defense has forced 15 turnovers so far this year, which leads the league and is tied for the fifth most through the first five games of the season since 2000. Leonard Fournette rushing for 181 yards and two memorable touchdowns - one by land and one very much by air.

However, the Steelers have yet to play a complete game this season and both losses have been ugly. We have to define our identity soon, because we're coming to our midway point of the season. But until the passing game actually shows that it can be more reliable as a proactive strategy, then it might be wise to put greater emphasis on the ground, which could include the usage of additional running backs. Fournette has lived up to his preseason hype and has easily been Jacksonville's most effective offensive weapon, whether it's running the ball or taking short passes and turning them into big gains.

Koyack, who caught 19 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown last season, doesn't seem bothered by the fact that he's not had a reception yet this season. They have alternated a win or loss in each game, losing 23-20 to the New York Jets in Week 4. (Picture the package the Jaguars ran on Fournette's first touchdown.) At the snap, tight end Marcedes Lewis, lined up on the left end of the line, blocked Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt inside, Bohanon pushed cornerback Artie Burns out of the play toward the left sideline and a pulling Cann stood up safety Mike Mitchell in the hole.

But when Roethlisberger tried to rally the Steelers, he threw two more interceptions.
