The Pittsburgh Steelers added a 10th win to their winning streak after an easy game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in a crushing 27-3 victory.
The Steelers failed to disappoint this season and yesterday’s game was no different. Fans expected an easy game with Jaguars this week, but they were in for a surprise when the Jaguars did not score a single touchdown the whole game.
The game began with a small victory for the Jaguars in the first quarter. Both teams did not score a touchdown, but the Jaguars managed to score a field goal attempt, leaving the first quarter 0-3. It all went downhill when the Steelers scored a total of 17 points by the end of the second quarter, while the Jaguars were at the mercy of the Steelers defense.
The Steelers’ defense had four interceptions, two sacks, and allowed only three points for the whole game. Shutting down the Jaguars offense, and for lack of a better term “did not let them play the game”, according to one fan from Irwin Pennsylvania.
By the beginning of the fourth quarter, the Jaguar quarterback Jake Luton had a passing rate of 9.9.
“The guys are playing hard, and playing fast and collectively well. We’re getting turnovers. But I think, the catalyst for it all is that the guys are playing extremely hard and fast. And I think that creates the frenzy that provides the wave that we ride.” Steelers head coach, Mike Tomlin, said in the post-game conference about the Steelers Defense.

James Connor also contributed with a total of 99 yards total in this game, 10 of which were receiving.
While the Steelers fans are happy with the victory, some fans wonder how long can keep this up. This is the first time in the history of a franchise that the Steelers have had 10 consecutive wins since the start of the season.
There’s pressure in our business. I don’t know if you call it more pressure or not. I know regardless of our record, we’d be committed to winning this game that we’re walking into play on.” Tomlin also said when asked if the team feels pressured to keep the win streak going.
“There’s pressure associated with that; all of the above. But that’s the same regardless of record. I’m sure people that aren’t perfect feel pressure to perform week in and week out.” he concluded to reporters.
The Steelers play against conference rivals the Baltimore Ravens this Thanksgiving at 8:20 pm eastern time.
