Antonio Brown misses Friday practice with illness ahead of Jaguars-Steelers rematch

Antonio Brown misses Friday practice with illness ahead of Jaguars-Steelers rematch

Sunday, 1:05 p.m. ET, Heinz Field, TV: CBS, Ian Eagle, Dan Fouts, Evan Washburn (field reporter).

The Jaguars are going to need a lot to go right if they want to go into Heinz Field and beat a team the caliber of the Steelers, but they proved earlier this season that they have the capability of doing just that. He gained more yards running than throwing vs. Buffalo in the wild-card round.

Perhaps he's forgetting the Jaguars beat the Steelers 30-9 during the regular season in Week 5. Will they be able to play in the cold weather? We didn't necessarily stick to our game plan. "Playoff football is about you going out there to win. We want to be balanced".

The team that protects the ball better and the team that can capitalize on turnovers has an inside track to the AFC Championship.

Bell proved to be a clutch playoff performer in his first postseason exposure past year, rushing for 167 and 170 yards against the Dolphins and Chiefs.

Ben Roethlisberger #7 of the Pittsburgh Steelers is pressured by Calais Campbell #93 of the Jacksonville Jaguars and Abry Jones #95 in the second half during the game at Heinz Field on October 8, 2017 in Pittsburgh. Last week, Tyreek Hill was having an early field day against the Titans, and if it wasn't for a few drops and Andy Reid, he could have had a full-on eruption game. I'm going to give a slight edge to Thielen over Stefon Diggs, who has a touchdown in three straight games. In his first, Bortles passed for only 87 yards in last week' 10-3 win over Buffalo. A couple more? Or could it be as little as one more game? But eventually, you can only protect the quarterback position so much. "So hopefully we can use that experience to my advantage".

Snow warning for Largs and west of Scotland
Visibility could drop to 100 metres in some places bringing unsafe driving conditions and hindering flight take offs, he added. One forecaster warned that a "potent wintry blast" is on its way and could arrive in the United Kingdom "early next week".

In this December 17, 2017, file photo, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (12) plays against the Pittsburgh Steelers, in an NFL football game, in Pittsburgh.

The Steelers are heavy favorites for a reason. Leonard Fournette rushed for 57 yards in 21 attempts. It will be up to Williams and the middle of the Steelers defense to make sure Fournette is less effective in the rematch.

"Any game that we are going to play anybody is going to be a hard opponent", Roethlisberger said ... Though David Garrard was better that season than Blake Bortles is right now, the teams almost mirrored each other offensively, the 2017 Jags have the edge on defense, and they're going to need it going up against one of the most explosive and risky offenses in the league. He has shown he can be a game-changer in first campaign hauling in 58 catches for 917 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. The Steelers offense as rebounded from a slow start to the year and has been very efficient the last half of the season. In last meeting, totaled 181 yards rushing with two TDs, including a 90-yarder. They've limited opposing passers to an 81.8 passer rating and lead the league with 56 sacks. Jalen Ramsey is more than capable of blanketing Brown. Linebacker Telvin Smith led the way with two TDs. Roethlisberger thought heavily about his future this offseason, enough to make the Steelers more aware of finding his potential replacement.

Sam's Club to close seven Illinois locations
The company did not respond to CBS News' request for a comment, and did not elaborate on how many stores would be closed and when. The store's location was removed from the company's website . "They are increasing salaries to over a million American workers".

The Steelers used the game as motivation and promptly won 10 of their final 11 games. He and Le'Veon Bell were named co-AFC Offensive Player of the Year in 2014.

Pittsburgh has a Hall of Fame quarterback (Roethlisberger), the best running back in the league (Bell), the best receiver in the league (Brown), and a top-five defense the gets to play Blake Bortles. Also, the rookie had a career-high 28 carries.

There's just one major caveat holding up putting this young, bold, trash-talking unit on a pedestal with those memorable defenses. "I'm not going out here getting the ball 400 times if I'm not getting what I feel I'm valued at".

Trump's pungent, profane insult to immigrants
