Ben Roethlisberger tosses quintet of picks as Jaguars upset Steelers

NFL Predictions Week 5: Jacksonville Jaguars at Pittsburgh Steelers Picks, Predictions, and Odds 10/08/17

You can listen to the game live nationally on SiriusXM.

Linebacker Telvin Smith and safety Barry Church scored Pick Six Touchdowns on back-to-back third-quarter possessions, and the Jaguars intercepted quarterback Ben Roethlisberger five times in a 30-9 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field Sunday afternoon. The Jaguars added Calais Campbell this offseason, to bolster their pass rush. Both players were limited practice participants on Friday and are among the four players listed as questionable by the team.

Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was picked off five times, including two returned for touchdowns.

After a slow start to the season, Pittsburgh RB Le'Veon Bell bounced back in a big way against Baltimore in Week 4. He did suffer a slight ankle injury last week, and that could hamper how much he's used against the Steelers. The Jaguars continued to smash into the Steelers' defense with five consecutive runs.

Jaguars: Host the Los Angeles Rams next Sunday.

Our Free NFL Pick: Jacksonville's recent loss against the Jets is very fresh in my mind when I think on this game. Only Tampa Bay has garnered fewer than Carolina's 118 penalty yards against, and the Buccaneers have only played three games. Offensively, they're managing only 95 yards per game on the ground while defensively, they're allowing 14.8 points and 267 yards per game. Even more impressively: Carolina has just two combined flags in its previous two games.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are 2-2 in the season so far with 1-1 away. It's no surprise, then, that the Lions rank second from the bottom in net penalty yards with -125 - and a similar performance this weekend could spell trouble for the hosts.

Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy also wanted to "bombard [a crowd] during concerts" to kill as many people as possible. Haroon, who has been accused of five counts of the indictment, was arrested in Pakistan in September 2016.

Beating the now reeling Ravens in London is one thing.

The Jaguars are stellar in pass coverage, but haven't faced an attack quite like the one they are about to. Turning into Scott Tolzien in Heinz creates little confidence for the Steelers to carry into Arrowhead next week in hopes of putting up points on the Kansas City Chiefs.

The game features the league's top two pass defenses and pass-rushing teams.

An 18-yard completion to wide receiver Marqise Lee put the Jaguars in Pittsburgh territory.

A week ago, Steelers receiver Antonio Brown had his lowest yardage output of the season, catching four passes on nine targets for 34 yards. He's always been an albatross that can't lead the offense, and that's been proven.

Minnesota could have Sam Bradford back under center this week - and while that's great news for the offense, substitute Case Keenum has performed admirably in Bradford's absence. The defense has been unexpectedly good, ranked second in total defense and scoring defense. It's a considerable improvement from the 38.0-percent third-down success rate Minnesota boasted last season. The defense couldn't stop the run, giving up two long rushing TDs, and struggled in a pivotal 3rd quarter.
