Sunday Night Football Preview: Steelers at Jaguars

The Steelers have payback on their minds as the enter this primetime contest with Jacksonville on Sunday Night.  The last time that these two teams met was in the playoffs at Heinz Field, and the Steelers were stopped short of another Super Bowl run as they watched David Gerrard run the football in a crucial fourth quarter drive.

Tonight the Steelers come into the game looking less than healthy, with free agent acquisition Mewelde Moore lining up in the backfield, and a familiar face in Najeh Davenport as a third-down back.  Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is also banged up and will be playing with a sore shoulder against the Jags.

One of the big questions for tonight's game is weather or not the Steelers secondary can hold up against Gerrard, who has completed every two out of three passes thus far this season.  Also, how effective can the Steelers pash rush be without defensive end Brett Keisel and defensive tackle Casey Hampton.  Will they be able to stop the duel threat rushing attach of Fred Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew?
