Antonio Brown misses Friday practice with illness ahead of Jaguars-Steelers rematch

Their 68.5 quarterback rating? Ben Roethlisberger threw for 4,251 yards, 28 touchdowns and 14 interceptions on 360 of 561 passing, good for a 64.2% completion percentage. Roethlisberger is averaging 298 yards passing since that forgettable three hours against the NFL's top defense.

The Jaguars also boast the best passing defense in the National Football League, holding opponents to 169.9 yards per game and leading the National Football League with 21 interceptions.

After the Titans beat Jacksonville 15-10 in Week 17 to clinch a playoff spot, Tennessee defensive tackle Jurrell Casey went on 104.5 The Zone in Nashville and said, "as long as Bortles is back there, if the ball game is in his hands, he's going to choke." Another quirky statistic that could have the Jaguars optimistic about their trip North? Since 2012, teams that lost a regular season game by 20-plus points are 1-12 against that same opponent in the postseason. Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram were held to just 68 combined yards from scrimmage in a wild-card win over the Carolina Panthers thanks in part to an athletic linebacking corps that prevented the Pro Bowl duo from turning the corner and finding open-field space. His 500 yards against the Ravens salvaged a win and his heroics almost knocked off the Patriots despite a lapse of judgement on their last play of the game.

It's possible that Roethlisberger does know what he's going to do after this season and simply isn't ready to say it. He may finish third and at least warrant a nice montage at the NFL Honors ceremony in February, but the second half of the first-rounder's season did not match what preceded it. Jacksonville had two interceptions against Buffalo.

While still playing for the Dolphins in a Week 6 meeting with the Falcons, Ajayi ran 26 times for 130 yards, the most Atlanta gave up to any one running back this season. Kicker Josh Lambo, acquired on October 17, made 95 percent of his field goal attempts (19-for-20) and 91.7 percent of his extra points (22-for-24). He's called for intentional grounding, loses 10 yards and the down. This Steelers team has dropped one game by three points since that loss and even that was a Roethlisberger screw up. Linebacker Myles Jack and Jackson had sacks against Buffalo.

Big Ben and the Steelers claim to welcome a chance at a rematch against the Jags, and numerous Jaguars have responded publicly that Big Ben should be careful with what he wishes for on Sunday.

Behind a dominant rushing game led by Leonard Fournette and a stout defense, the Jags showed their value in Pittsburgh. More than that, he actually rushed for more yards than he passed for, 87.

If Mickens can't return punts against the Steelers, Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said fellow wide receivers Keelan Cole, Dede Westbrook and Marqise Lee would be considered for his replacement.

Lee was a second-round pick and Hurns was an undrafted rookie in 2014.

While a huge day from Brown or an ugly day from Bortles would certainly swing this game, odds are the team that finds success running the ball on a frigid day will win. Linebacker Telvin Smith led the way with two TDs. Garrard was 9-of-21 for 140 yards, one touchdown and two picks. New England is the other at 2-3.
