Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars will play the Pittsburgh Steelers which should be another loss for the cats. 

Jake Luton will start again for the Jaguars in another game which will see QB Gardner Minshew on the list of inactives. Luton has played two of the NFL’s worst defenses in his first two games in Houston and Green Bay. However, this week, he will play one of the best. 

Pittsburgh is third in the league in points per game allowed, allowing just under 19 points per game to their opponents. On the flip side, Jacksonville ranks just 31st, allowing 30.1 points per game. 

The Steelers are led by a young receiving core and veterans at the rest of the positions on offense. The Jaguars, without rookie cornerback CJ Henderson and veteran Sidney Jones IV, will have a hard time covering all of the Steelers’ talented receivers. The trio of Diontae Johnson, Juju Smith-Schuster and rookie Chase Claypool have combined for 126 receptions, 1442 yards and 16 receiving touchdowns. Expect Pittsburgh to get ahead early and grind the game out on the ground through James Conner. This game shouldn’t be close. The Jaguars would be wise to lose out for a high pick, and select a franchise quarterback.
