JACKSONVILLE Zach Gentry Jersey , Fla. — The Jacksonville Jaguars don’t have near the playoff experience as the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Jacksonville, though, has winning experience at Heinz Field.

The champions of the AFC South (Jaguars) and AFC North (Steelers) will meet Sunday in the divisional round with the winner advancing to the AFC Championship Game against Tennessee or New England on Jan. 21.

Jacksonville trounced Pittsburgh 30-9 on Oct. 8 at Heinz Field, forcing Steelers two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Ben Roethlisberger into a career-worst five interceptions.

The Steelers (13-3) went on to win 10 of their last 11 games to secure the AFC’s second seed and first-round bye.

“We’ve evolved since then,” Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said. “They have evolved a lot since then. (The first game) is a good physical reference in terms of the matchups. … I am sure that they are as different as we are since the last time we’ve seen them.”

The Jaguars are hoping that the evolution has been minimal, especially the passing game. Roethlisberger said last week he was hoping the Steelers would get to play the Jaguars.

Jacksonville All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey helped grant his wish with his interception in the final seconds to seal Jacksonville’s 10-3 victory over Buffalo in the wild-card round Sunday at EverBank Field. The win was Jacksonville’s first in the playoffs since the 2007 season, its last appearance.

The Jaguars (11-6) returned two Roethlisberger interceptions for touchdowns in the first meeting.

The 35-year-old Roethlisberger wondered “if he still has it” after the loss when meeting with reporters.

Ramsey said with the Bills game behind them, Big Ben’s comments about wanting a rematch have their attention.

“I’m sure it will be brought up a couple times this week,” Ramsey said. “I would want to play us again too. He threw five picks and was contemplating retirement saying whether he had it or not after playing us. They had a good season after our game. But, sometimes you have to be careful what you ask for. We’ll see Big Ben and the Steelers on Sunday. We’ll see what happens then.”

Ramsey intercepted a pass in the Pittsburgh win and deflected four passes. One breakup resulted in strong safety Barry Church intercepting a pass and returning it 51 yards for a touchdown.

Roethlisberger was quick to praise the Jaguars’ defense this week.

“This is one of the best defenses I’ve ever played against,” Roethlisberger said.

The Steelers finished the season ranked third in the NFL in passing yardage, with the Jaguars first in pass defense.

“They play to our strengths,” Ramsey said. “They think that passing is their strength. Defending the pass is our strength. Any team that tries to pass the ball on us 40 times hasn’t had success on us and I don’t think will have success on us. We have to grind this week though. They’re a good team coming off the bye. We’re going to have to have a great game plan and execute.”

Ramsey will be in the headlining matchup Sunday as he goes up against Steelers All-Pro receiver Antonio Brown, who caught 10 passes for 157 yards on 19 targets in the first meeting.

Brown injured his calf on Dec. 17 Chris Lindstrom Jersey , but is expected to play Sunday. The eighth-year veteran led the NFL in receiving yards this season with 1,533 (89 more than No. 2 Julio Jones), despite missing the final two games of the season.

Pittsburgh will also try to lean more on All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell, who was held to 93 total yards in the first meeting.

“He’s not one-dimensional,” Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said. “It’s not like this guy is going to take the ball and run downhill and run you over every single time he takes it. He can do that. He can also get the ball outside. He has excellent patience. He has a really good understanding of the blocking scheme. He’s a natural catcher.”

The big question is how much will Pittsburgh really need to score? Jacksonville’s offense has been sluggish lately, scoring 20 total points in its last two outings combined.

Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles wasn’t effective in the first meeting. He completed 8-of-14 passes for 95 yards with no touchdowns and an interception for a 48.2 passer rating.

The Jaguars’ top-ranked run offense had one of its best days of the season, generating 231 yards. Rookie running back Leonard Fournette carried 28 times for 181 yards and two touchdowns, including a game-clinching 90-yard score.

“Hopefully, we can throw less,” Bortles said. “That would be awesome. Leonard goes off again and those guys up front play as well as they did last time, we can run the ball up there and not have to throw at all. It was something that happened last time, but you never know.”

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey can criticize Buffalo rookie quarterback Josh Allen all he wants. The Bills aren’t taking the bait.“Everybody has their thing, and that’s his thing. He likes to talk http://www.falconscheapshops.com/cheap-a...-kaleb-mcgary-jersey ,” Bills running back LeSean McCoy said. “If he feels Josh is trash or whatever, that’s his opinion. I think Josh is really good.”Defensive tackle Kyle Williams shrugged.“I don’t care,” he said, when reminded of Ramsey calling Allen “trash,” and referring to the Bills’ decision to select him seventh overall as being “a stupid draft pick,” in a story published in GQ Magazine in August.Ramsey didn’t back off this week, with Jacksonville preparing to play at Buffalo on Sunday, and Allen set to start after missing four games with a sprained right throwing elbow.“Because I wanted to,” Ramsey said, referring to why he felt the need to go after Allen. “If you don’t know me, that’s on you. Y’all know me. If you look deep into it, you will be able to figure out why I was so hard.”Allen took the high road.In calling Ramsey “one of the best corners in the game,” Allen said the only way to deal with the comments was ignoring them. “We move on,” he said.Whatever bad blood the outspoken Ramsey might have been attempting to stir between two non-division rivals meeting for the 11th time in 13 years is being set aside in part due to the deep ruts both teams have dug for themselves.Some 11 months since the Jaguars defeated the Bills 10-3 in the AFC wild-card playoff Kendall Sheffield Jersey , both teams are 3-7 and have been mostly undone by sputtering and turnover-prone offenses.The Bills taking a step back was expected despite ending a 17-year playoff drought. Buffalo is breaking in a new quarterback and had little money to spend this offseason to address needs on offense.Buffalo is at least rested, following its bye week off, and coming off a 41-10 win over the New York Jets in which journeyman Matt Barkley breathed life into an offense in his first start in nearly two years.The Jaguars, by comparison, have been a major disappointment a year after a 10-6 finish and losing the AFC Championship game to New England.They’ve dropped six straight and coming off a 20-16 loss to Pittsburgh, in which they squandered a 16-0 third-quarter lead. The offense has sputtered due to injuries and ineptness. And Jacksonville’s prized defense has been unable to carry the extra burden.Coach Doug Marrone refuses to lean on excuses.“I have to lead this team through this tough challenge of this adversity, and we have to continue to go out there and play with the same type of emotion, the same type of enthusiasm with each other,” Marrone said. “And if we keep doing that and working away, we will find a way to win.”HAPPY RETURN?Marrone isn’t sure what reception he’ll get facing his former team at Orchard Park, New York, for the first time as a head coach.He went 15-17 in two seasons in Buffalo before opting out of his contract after a 9-7 finish in 2014. The opt-out option, including a $4 million payout, kicked in because of an ownership change once Terry and Kim Pegula bought the team after Ralph Wilson died.“Someone pays to go into a stadium and wants to boo http://www.falconscheapshops.com/cheap-a...john-cominsky-jersey , that is fine,” Marrone said. “Right now, that is what’s happening at any stadium I go to because we’re not winning.”ALLEN STARTINGAllen reclaims the starting job because the Bills are placing an emphasis on having him gain as much on-field experience as possible to spur his development.The 22-year-old was inconsistent going 75 of 139 for 832 yards with two touchdowns and five interceptions in five-plus appearances. Allen still leads the team with three touchdown runs, though was knocked for being too quick to scramble out of the pocket.GOOD LUCK, ROOKThe Jaguars are 2-0 against rookie quarterbacks under Marrone. They handled Cleveland’s DeShone Kizer in 2017 and the Jets’ Sam Darnold earlier this season.Kizer threw for 179 yards, with a touchdown, two interceptions, two fumbles and five sacks. Darnold threw for 167 yards and a touchdown, and was sacked three times.ON THE RUNThe Jaguars are regaining their offensive identity with running back Leonard Fournette’s return after missing six of seven games with a strained right hamstring. He has combined for 148 yards rushing and two touchdowns, and 102 yards receiving and a TD the past two weeks.The Bills have allowed 223 yards rushing in their past three since giving up a season-worst 220 in a 37-5 loss at Indianapolis.TURNOVERSThe Jaguars have turned the ball over at least once in every game this season. They have 20 giveaways, including a league-worst 11 lost fumbles.Buffalo’s 22 giveaways and 16 interceptions are tied for the NFL’s second-worst totals.
