Steelers can't turn back the clock on Big Ben

Steelers can't turn back the clock on Big Ben

However, the defense is playing above expectations when the Steelers face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday (10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, CBS, DirecTV).

It would be easy to write the obituary on Roethlisberger's career after a game like this, which resulted in the Steelers losing 30-9 to Jacksonville.

Max McCaffrey, whom the Jaguars signed off New Orleans' practice squad on September 12, has played in the last three games mainly on special teams and does not have a catch.

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

After the defense held the Jaguars to a three-and-out, Ben Roethlisberger opened it up for the offense.

"As I've said many times, I [couldn't] care less about my numbers", Bortles said.

Riley chose to punt both times. "You know we started off with a situation where you absolutely can't have against Wisconsin ". Junior linebacker Luke Gifford said the Huskers had the momentum after the pick-six and needed to step it up on defense.

"Our defense got stops, our offense was able to maintain possession of the ball because we took care of the ball, and that allowed us to continually snap it and produce the run total", Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said.

Thanks to Koyack's blocking and a defense that intercepted five Ben Roethlisberger passes, the Jaguars dominated the Steelers to raise their season record to 3-2 while the Steelers dropped to 3-2 with the loss.

When they did get on the field in the 4th quarter it was from their own 4 yard line and it was textbook Doug Marrone/Coughlin: Run it until they stop it. T.Y. Hilton responded from an terrible first half that included a pair of drops and a costly penalty to finish with a game-high 177 receiving yards. So far it's working: They're 3-2 and sitting atop the AFC South. "I've had bad games before, had bad stretches". "I don't know the answer to that one. You just find a way to move on and play better". He went on to play at Notre Dame and wound up starting all 13 games of his senior season there, finishing with 30 catches for 317 yards and two touchdowns. Chris Reed is also an important player for the offense in the game against the Steelers as the first right guard backup. Pittsburgh can win with its running game and defense alone, and at the moment, it needs to do just that.

He still was strong late in the game, rushing 90 yards for a TD with 1 minute, 47 seconds to go to cap the scoring. That's when he had seven interceptions and no touchdowns in the Steelers' first three games while coming back from an offseason motorcycle injury then an emergency appendectomy. "We just need to focus on our responsibilities and make sure we handle it". Roethlisberger tried to hit Brown down the sideline.

Instead, the Steelers are left figuring out what just happened, and how to fix it. However, they haven't consistently lived the part in this season.

Kevin Hogan, who replaced DeShone Kizer at quarterback after halftime, gave the Browns their first lead of the season on a 21-yard touchdown pass to rookie tight end David Njoku with 9:23 left in the third quarter.
