The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Pittsburgh Steelers will fight it out in what should be an entertaining clash on Sunday in Week 5 of the 2017 NFL regular season. The game takes place from Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and has a scheduled start time of 1 p.m. ET. The game can be watched on TV not he CBS network, or online through live stream (details below).
There's a lot at stake in this one, as the top team in the AFC South faces the leading team from the AFC North. Both teams are under pressure at the top of their respective divisions and there is no room at this time for any slip ups if they want to maintain the top spots.
The Jaguars come into the game with an even 2-2 record, which is enough to tie with the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans on the same record in the AFC South. With none of the teams in the division on a winning record after the opening month of the season, everything is still to play for, and we're waiting for one of the teams to impose themselves and take advantage of the situation as their rivals lack consistency.
Meanwhile, the Steelers are out alone at the top of the AFC North, with a 3-1 record. The Baltimore Ravens are just behind them on 2-2, and the Steelers will be hoping to ramp things up over the coming weeks to put more space between themselves and the chasing pack in the division.
Earlier this week on NFL Thursday Night Football, the New England Patriots won a tight game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to get themselves back to a winning record.
Things were close, however, and the Buccaneers were pushing in the fourth, but ultimately came up short to ensure the Patriots would claim a confidence boosting road win and move to 3-2.
The game came down to the final play, but once the dust settles the Patriots will be satisfied as a win is a win, and the game also saw quarterback Tom Brady tie Peyton Manning and Brett Favre for the most season wins by a quarterback with 186 victories.
Brady had a tough night, but still came up with some good stats. Despite throwing an interception, and losing a fumble, as well as getting hit all night, he managed to complete 30 of 40 passes for 303 yards and a touchdown.
As for the Buccaneers they will be disappointed having fallen just short of completing their comeback. Had quarterback Jameis Winston's final pass to OJ Howard been on target they would have stolen the win from the Patriots. Winston finished the game with 334 yards, completing 26 throws from 46 attempts.
The Buccaneers will also be looking at kicker Nick Folk, who missed three field goals, as a reason they came up short.
