The Steelers are in Jacksonville, and EverBank Field is packed with black and gold.

Not much of a surprise. The Steelers have a big presence in Florida, and it isn't exactly fun rooting for the Jaguars. Let's see if that holds up over four quarters today.

The winless Jaguars are looking for a boost from rookie quarterback Blake Bortles, who's making his first home start. The third overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft has completed 70 percent of his passes in 1-plus games of action so far. He's also thrown four interceptions in 51 passes, so a key will be to force him into uncomfortable situations. It's not about sacks as much as it is about pressure.

Offensively, the Steelers are going to feed All Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown constantly. Expect 10-plus targets again for him, as the Jaguars struggle against the pass considerably.

Should be an interesting game. While you're here, please remember to be respectful to one another, and eliminate the hostility. Let's make an enjoyable environment for everyone.
