But after a brilliant fourth-quarter comeback to overcome an terrible first three quarters, Roethlisberger relished in a 20-16 win that quieted Jacksonville's chirp. They held Pittsburgh to zero points in the first half, racking up two interceptions of Ben Roethlisberger and running the ball at will on offense. If that's true, he was clearly able to block the noise out and play a solid game, leading the team with eight tackles, three pass deflections and two interceptions. They ended the game with a 3-to-1 turnover margin but converted it to six points on offense.

The Steelers (7-2-1) won their sixth straight and likely ended any playoff hopes for the Jaguars, who eliminated Pittsburgh in the divisional round previous year. The Jaguars, who controlled the game until the last five minutes, now have dropped six in a row. Offensive coordinator Nate Hackett clearly didn't trust Bortles enough to let him make the necessary throws, which led to various three-and-out drives.
A 25-yard pass to Brown over the middle got the Steelers to the 2-yard line in the final minute.
Blake Bortles was largely ineffective, throwing for just 104 yards and getting back six times. His biggest gains were to Fournette out of the backfield. Javon Hargrave and T.J. Watt each had two. For Pittsburgh, this is just revenge for the 42-45 loss they suffered against Jacksonville the last time they faced one another. Ramsey had two interceptions, none bigger than in the end zone over Brown.
Ramsey also broke across the middle on Brown and made a diving pick, somehow keeping the ball off the turf on a play initially ruled incomplete but overturned on review.
Pittsburgh will be staying on the road next week, facing off against Denver.
