Ben Roethlisberger: Jags talk a lot, but I’m carrying the ball home

NFL Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers

NFL Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Ben Roethlisberger heard Jacksonville Jaguars defenders critique his game in the offseason and taunt it on the field Sunday. In fact, a lot of things went right around Bortles for the Jags not to lose Sunday's game. Fortunately, the Steelers rallied in the fourth quarter and pulled off the win.

One week after Roethlisberger had a ideal quarterback rating, he overcame three interceptions and a 16-0 deficit by leading touchdown drives on the Steelers' last two possessions, and Pittsburgh escaped with its sixth straight victory.

After the game, Steelers reporter Missi Matthews asked wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster about the problems in the first half and he admitted the offense wasn't on the same page and they weren't even thinking about the plays. The Jaguars, who controlled the game until the last five minutes, now have dropped six in a row. No matter. Roethlisberger hit Brown over the middle to the 2, and after a pair of penalties, he delivered the victor.

The decisive blow was landed in the 71st minute by Cokanasiga, who stormed over as England probed down the left. Joe Cokanasiga scored a debut try as England finally pulled away from Japan .

The Steelers were stunned and embarrassed by Jacksonville in January during the AFC division game at Heinz Field and quickly had that "here-we-go-again" feeling through almost the first three-quarters of Sunday's rematch at TIAA Bank Field when the Jaguars were taking it to the Steelers. From there, Roethlisberger spiked the ball to stop the clock. Roethlisberger threw an incompletion. The nose of the football barely crossed the goal line.

"We were in this position past year and we gave up big plays at the end of the game", Hargrave said, referring to the 45-42 playoff loss to Jacksonville.

Roethlisberger said he didn't get a chance to talk with Ramsey after the game, but he completed 5-of-6 passes in the fourth quarter when Ramsey was the nearest defender, according to NFL Next Gen Stats. Roethlisberger had a game-winning passing touchdown with 10 seconds left in Week 6 at the Bengals. "Pretty special", he said. "I'm lucky to be able to catch him at this part of his career and be able to block for him".
