Following their brutal 0-4 start, the last thing Jacksonville needed was to face yet another opponent coming off a disappointing loss. But that is exactly what the Jags get against the 2-2 Steelers, who twice blew 7-point leads in a 27-24 loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Both Washington and Indianapolis scored 40 points against the Jags after failing to cover in losses the previous week. Pittsburgh will be looking for the same tonic after their loss to Tampa dropped them to 1-3 ATS. But for a change, the Jags have history on their side; 4-2 SU in their last six against Pittsburgh, 6-2 ATS in their last eight meetings.
