"I believe in seven", said Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward, referring to Roethlisberger's jersey number. Or maybe he was confused about which team Smith plays for. But Cam Newton had a great game, leading the Panthers to a 27-24 victory and making a clutch throw on the team's final drive to hold off a 14-point rally by the Lions in the fourth quarter.

Again the Steelers tried some up-tempo on offense but Tashaun Gipson picked off Roethlisberger to give the Jaguars offense the ball near midfield.

"Growing up in Oil City, of course I was a Steeler fan", an elated Koyack said after Sunday's victory. They would have an increased role on offense against the Steelers if Lee can't play. During that meeting, sources said, Brown expressed his displeasure with how Roethlisberger and others handled the matter, and there was some lingering resentment through the week. According to NFL Research, Roethlisberger is one of two quarterbacks who had zero touchdowns and five-plus interceptions in a game since Ryan Fitzpatrick did it in 2016. Series tied, 11-11. The Steelers have won the past three meetings and six of the 10 games in Pittsburgh, but the Jaguars have won three in a row at Heinz Field, including the only playoff game between the two teams. Then, Bell's carries dried up. Both of them have missed many games. "I've had bad games before, bad stretches".

The deficit forced the Steelers to throw more, but it's nearly as if an offense waiting to experience a passing-game explosion like old times grabbed for glory Sunday, to spectacular failure. "I don't know the answer to that one".

Brown beat Ramsey for a 49-yard catch on the Steelers' first offensive play - albeit with a little shove just before the ball got to him - but after that the Jaguars defense controlled the game. "You just find a way to move on and play better". However, the first-round draft pick from LSU carried 28 times for 181 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday. They crushed Baltimore in London, then crashed back to earth by falling to the New York Jets in overtime.

Bell, who averaged 105.7 rushing yards per game last season, got off to a slow start through three games. "Let's just wait and see where we're at when the season is over". Fournette will need to have a big game in order for the Jaguars to win.

Antonio Brown made headlines in Week 4 when he threw a temper tantrum on the sideline over Ben Roethlisberger missing him on what could have been a long touchdown, but the star receiver's frustration with his quarterback reportedly began long before that play. Roethlisberger targeted Brown a whopping 19 times Sunday.
