Unfortunately for the club, they’re facing some pretty tough competition in this Sunday’s Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars contest.

Online NFL Betting Odds:
The Steelers enter this Sunday’s matchup sporting a brilliant 6-2-1 record that pegs them as the best team in the AFC North. Although it took Pittsburgh some time to find traction, the Steelers have solidified themselves as one of the best teams in the league thanks to their current 5-game winning streak. The most impressive thing about Pittsburgh has been their ability to bounce back from the Le’Veon Bell controversy. Despite all the drama, the Steelers have endured the controversy and have emerged triumphant. On top of that, James Conner is doing a pretty good job running the pigskins for Pittsburgh. All in all the Steelers should be able to pick off the struggling Jags on the road without too much of a problem, given the stark comparison in their offenses.
Players to Watch: Ben Roethlisberger (2,888 passing yards, 21 TD, 7 INT), James Conner (771 rushing yards, 10 TD, 3 F), and JuJu Smith-Schuster (762 receiving yards, 3 TD, 56 REC).
The Jags pounce into this Sunday’s contest sporting a meager 3-6 record that ranks them as the worst team in the division. Coming off a 29-26 loss to the Colts, it’s safe to say that the entire organization is feeling pretty disheartened. Although the season isn’t over, the Houston Texans are starting to dig themselves in at the top of this division. Furthermore, we haven’t seen much to suggest that Jags are capable from bouncing back from this big of a hole. All in all the defense is still talented but seems to have gone on vacation the last 5 weeks. Which is a shame, since the Jags truly need them this Sunday.
Players to Watch: Blake Bortles (2,341 passing yards, 12 TD, 8 INT), TJ Yeldon (346 rushing yards, 1 TD, 1 F), and Donte Moncrief (477 receiving yards, 3 TD, 32 REC).
