Ben Roethlisberger could have a big day today as the Jaguars are 32nd in pass and total defense on the season. While Jacksonville is tied for second in the NFL with 12 sacks, it should be noted that five of those came in the first half of the opener at Philadelpha.

Since 2013, Antonio Brown is the No. 1 wide receiver in receptions, receiving yards and first downs according to the folks at ESPN Stats and Information. He has 139 receptions in his last 20 games.

The Black and Gold need to keep the 15-yard penalties to a minimum this week, so they do not help an inferior opponent get back into the game.

Injuries for the Steelers: Out – Ryan Shazier and Ike Taylor. Listed as probable are Martavis Bryant, Ramon Foster, Marcus Gilbert, James Harrison, Brett Keisel, Heath Miller, Michael Mitchell, Troy Polamalu, Roethlisberger and Markus Wheaton.
