Pittsburgh- Jacksonville: A Nine-Year Old Previews the Sunday Night Match-Up

Edward DegtyaryovCorrespondent IOctober 4, 2008

On Sunday night the Jacksonville Jaguars host the Pittsburgh Steelers.  I think the Steelers will win it in an overtime battle, although the Jaguars have more people who think Jacksonville will win.

The Steelers should keep Ben Roethlisberger out of the game for the first quarter because they cannot have him injured early in the game. He has been sacked 15 times on the whole season.

The Jacksonville Jaguars also have to stop Ben's throws. He has thrown 83 passes and completed 53 of them. They also have to double-team Hines Ward every once in a while. Look for Ward to make big plays in the game.

The average points the Steelers score in a game is 16.4 and the average for the Jaguars is 21.1.

Jacksonville's crowd needs to help the Jaguars. On offense, they need to slow down the Steelers' blitzburg. The Jaguars also have to step up on defense and force turnovers. They need to get good yards on the ground, and not force silly turnovers.

The Steelers are 16-50 on third downs, and they need to ignore the Jacksonville crowd.
