The eye in the sky never lies. This is certainly true for any sport, but especially for football.

If you have never had the opportunity to watch football from the ‘All-22’ angle, the high angle which shows all 22 players on the field, you get to see every minor mistake and issue going on between the sidelines.

After the Steelers 45-42 loss to the Jaguars in the AFC Divisional round, giving up 45 points to Blake Bortles and company means there were some major defensive issues. Leave it to Brian Baldinger of NFL Network to diagram what he saw on the field which turned the tide in the favor of the Jaguars.

Check out the videos below where Baldinger shows exactly what went wrong on the defensive side of the ball for the Steelers. Sometimes it is more about what Jacksonville did well, and less about what the Steelers did wrong, but there were certainly issues across the board.
