AFC Playoffs: Pittsburgh Steelers revenge tour starts with the Jacksonville Jaguars

New, comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers don’t have to wait anymore to find out who they play — the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Jacksonville Jaguars v Pittsburgh Steelers

Well, they asked for them, and now they have them.

When Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was asked which team he wanted to play out of the AFC Wild Card round, his answer was clear — the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Roethlisberger likely wants to prove the 5-interception debacle in Week 5 was nothing more than a flash in the pan, not a sign of an opponent who has Pittsburgh’s franchise quarterback’s number.

Roethlisberger wasn’t the only player who wanted Jacksonville to win. Linebacker Vince Williams wanted a rematch with Jacksnville too.

With Jacksonville beating the Buffalo Bills, it means the Jaguars will play the Steelers at Heinz Field on Sunday, January 14th at 1:05 p.m. ET. It also means the Tennessee Titans will travel to play the New England Patriots on Saturday, January 13th.

The Steelers’ revenge tour is just beginning, and it starts with the Jaguars. The team needs to win 3 games to win their latest Super Bowl, and the Jags are first on the docket.
