Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Zach Gentry suffered what Mike Tomlin called a significant knee injury on Sunday.
After the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-3 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, head coach Mike Tomlin addressed the media about the injuries suffered in the win. FOr guys like cornerback Joe Haden and wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, Tomlin characterized the injuries as the normal bumps and bruises associated with play.
But for tight end Zach Gentry, things aren’t so clear or optimistic. Tomlin characterized Gentry’s knee injury as “significant” and promised an upgrade later in the week.
Gentry has played the last two weeks due to Vance McDonald being on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. There have been no updates on McDonald’s condition since going on the list. Tomlin said in his post-game presser he hopes to have an update this week.
If McDonald cannot return and if Gentry’s injury is as bad as presumed, Pittsburgh will be running a lot more 11 personnel on Thursday against the Baltimore Ravens.
Ben Roethlisberger says the team punted too many times on Sunday and they need to score more points.
To watch the Pittsburgh Steelers handle the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, you might not think the Steelers have a care in the world. The game was basically over at halftime as the Steelers cruised to a 27-3 win.
However, according to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, there is always room for improvement. Despite putting up 27 points, Roethlisberger acknowledged this team needs to punt less and score more.
Steelers punter Jordan Berry punted five times in the game and for Roethlisberger thinks this is too much.
Pittsburgh has scored at least 24 points in every game this season and is averaging 29.8 points per game for the season. It was out of character to see the Steelers have so many drives stall but a win is a win and this is still the best team in the NFL until proven otherwise.
Pittsburgh defeated Jacksonville to remain perfect at 10-0.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have a perfect record but according to Mike Tomlin is not a perfect team.
The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to set the standard for the NFL this season. According to head coach Mike Tomlin, their record doesn’t dictate how much pressure is on the team and they have the urgency to win every game regardless of the record.
Pittsburgh played a near-perfect game against the Jacksonville Jaguars and coasted to a 27-3 win and they currently sit at 10-0. But Tomlin is careful to point out the only goal of this team is to win each game in each week, recognize every NFL is talented, and to take nothing for granted.
Pittsburgh now much get ready to play another game in just four weeks. The Steelers come back home and will take on the 6-4 Baltimore Ravens on Thanksgiving night.
The debate among media and pundits will now be all about if this team can really go 16-0. Personally, I don’t see any scenario where the Steelers win the next six games but I want to ask Steeler Nation. Will this team finish the regular season perfect? Let us know in the comments.
The Pittsburgh Steelers defense took over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
We knew the Jaguars were bad and that it was very likely the Steelers defense would show them up. But who would’ve thought they’d be held without a touchdown?
Pittsburgh limited rookie quarterback Jake Luton to 151 yards passing and picked him off four times. On the one drive the Jags made it to the red zone, safety Minkah Fitzpatrick picked off Luton.
It was Week 4 of 2019 when the Steelers last kept their opponent from the end zone in their 27-3 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Steelers didn’t need to do much to smother the Jags and come away with the 27-3 win.
It was great for a second week in a row to watch a Pittsburgh Steelers team that didn’t need to assert themselves for 59 minutes to win a game. Pittsburgh put the Jacksonville Jaguars away in the first half and coasted to a 27-3 win on the road to move to 10-0 on the season.
The Steelers came out on offense and showed real balance for the first time in a month. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 267 yards and two touchdowns, running back James Conner had 89 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown on 13 carries. The receivers were led by Diontae Johnson who finished with 12 catches for 111 yards.
Defensively the team was once gain stellar. Despite only sacking Jags quarterback Jake Luton twice, they did pick him off four times, two by safety Minkah Fitzpatrick and two by safety Terrell Edmunds. The defense bent but never broke, stalling out multiple Jacksonville drives with splash plays.
Attention now turns to the short week and the Baltimore Ravens on Thanksgiving.
Steelers Wire takes a look at Pittsburgh’s first half as they lead the Jaguars 17-3.
The Pittsburgh Steelers started slow but find themselves with the halftime lead 17-3 over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Pittsburgh is looking to move to 10-0 on the season.
Here are our four takeaways from the first half.
It’s been six decades since history has been made like Claypool is doing.
Chase Claypool only needs one. Two would be really special and three would be outstanding.
With one touchdown in today’s Steelers-Jaguars matchup, the rookie receiver will tie for third-most touchdowns through the first 10 games. Claypool’s scores currently stand at nine — seven receiving and two rushing.
Should Megatron score twice today, he’ll surpass Chicago Bears’ Harlon Hill (1954) and Houston Oilers’ Bill Groman (1960) and join Green Bay Packers’ Billy Howton (1952) with 11 touchdowns.
If Claypool finds paydirt three times (hey, we’ve seen it before), he’ll lead all rookies in touchdowns with 12.
But why rush history? Chase has seven games to make it happen.
Here are the inactives for the Steelers and Jags this week.
The Pittsburgh Steelers announced their inactives for this week’s game with the Jacksonville Jaguars. There are no real surprises among the list other than defensive tackle Isaiah Buggs. Buggs had gotten in a full week of practice and there was hope he might play this week.
For the Jags, they have to do some shuffling in the secondary which could mean trouble for their defense. Jacksonville will start Trey Herndon and Chris Claybrooks with Sidney Jones and CJ Henderson out. Jacksonville will also be without starting wide receiver Laviska Shenault is also out.
