New, comments

BTSC highlights five members of the 2017 Steelers who can possibly impact the game the most and lead the Steelers to a date wth New England as Pittsburgh hosts the Jaguars in a rematch of their Week 5 debacle.

Cleveland Browns v Pittsburgh Steelers

At home and facing a dangerous defense that stifled the Steelers back in October, here are five Steelers that could play a major factor in the playoff opener against Sacksonville.

  • Eli Rogers: He's been coming on lately as a return man and as a fourth receiver. No. 17 getting the Steelers good field position and moving the chains could be huge.
  • Roosevelt Nix: The fullback could pave the way for a huge Lev Bell game against the Jags run defense.
  • T.J. Watt: Against left tackle Cam Robinson, Watt could hound and punish Blake Bortles from the right side.
  • Jesse James: Facing a stifling secondary, tight ends could be extremely valuable. James could move the chains and be a major threat in red zone sitches.
  • Vince Williams: The Jags run the ball well with Fournette, Bortles and Ivory. Williams is the guy that will need to keep those guys in his sights all day long.
