The Pittsburgh Steelers took on the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5 and lost in humiliating fashion 30-9. Ben Roethlisberger threw five interceptions, the running game never got going, and the defense struggled to contain star running back Leonard Fournette. But now that the playoffs are here, the Steelers will have a chance for revenge on Sunday during the rematch, and here’s how you can tune into the game.
Kickoff will be at 1:05 EST on CBS, with Ian Eagle, Dan Fouts and Evan Washburn on the call. Tom McCarthy, Ross Tucker and Steve Tasker will have the national radio broadcast on Westwood One, while the local Pittsburgh team will have the game on Sirius and XM channel 82. Yahoo Sports will also stream the game for fans who aren’t watching on television.
The Jaguars are coming off of a 10-3 victory over the Buffalo Bills that many consider one of the ugliest playoff games ever played. Neither offense could get anything going, and unless Blake Bortles magically improves in the seven days between games, the Jaguars should have the same troubles on Sunday. The Steelers will not be held to three points as the Bills were. They even managed to put nine on the board last time despite five interceptions from their quarterback.
That leaves the Steelers as heavy favorites, but they cannot overlook the Jaguars. They did, after all, beat them the last time they met. The Patriots may be on the minds of every Steelers fan right now, but they have to get through the Jaguars now. The starters have had two weeks off to rest, and hopefully the bye week helped them prepare for the matchup.
The Steelers are only one game away from the rematch they’ve been waiting for since December. They just have to take care of business in another rematch with the Jaguars first. If they show up prepared and focused, they will win and head to the AFC Championship Game next week.
