Why Bet on the Pittsburgh Steelers?
The Jaguars’ first week did not go as well as planned after losing their opening game against the Texans 37-21. They trailed the entire way and failed to match their opponents’ pace. By the end of the game, Jacksonville finished with 395 total yards–54 yards less than the Texans. They also trailed in rushing yards 76 to 160.
In their losing efforts, quarterback Trevor Lawrence recorded 332 yards on 28-of-51 passing, including 3 touchdowns and 3 interceptions.

Marvin Jones and Chris Manhertz managed to score a touchdown as well and combined for 99 yards.
On defense, Myles Jack finished with a team-high 9 tackles (6 solo), followed by Rayshawn Jenkins who had 6 solo tackles. Malcolm Brown and Andrew Wingard combined for 12 tackles, and John Allen documented the only sack on top of 5 tackles (3 solo). Ultimately, if they want to hold the Broncos, their defense needs to step up.
