Ben Roethlisberger throws five interceptions in loss to the Jaguars

It was not a good day for Pittsburgh Steelers players nor the fans as they watched Ben Roethlisberger complete two touchdowns to the wrong team and added three more just to cap off a awful day. Martavis Bryant has been unable to re-establish himself as the deep threat he was a season ago and Roethlisberger has been off his game in each of the first five weeks. While stressing he wasn't going to panic, Roethlisberger knows he needs to play better going forward if the Steelers want to be legitimate Super Bowl contenders.

Reuters/Geoff Burke-USA TODAY SportsPittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (7) reacts during the third quarter against the New England Patriots in the 2017 AFC Championship Game at Gillette Stadium, Jan 22, 2017.

Situation: Leading 3-0 in the first quarter, the Steelers had second-and-10 from their 46. It would have been unthinkable for the Ravens to drop two straight games, including one to the Steelers and for them to still have a shot at holding the AFC North crown.

"Maybe I don't have it anymore", he said offhandedly in response to one reporter's question.

They shouldn't make the same mistake this Sunday in Kansas City, the spot where Bell broke off 170 yards on 30 carries in last year's playoffs.

Following a Carolina three-and-out, the Lions pulled to within 27-24 with 3:22 remaining on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Stafford to Fells. I've had bad games before. Through five games, the Jaguars look to have a legitimate chance to get back for the first time in 10 years. "Had good ones too, so you just find a way to move on and play better".

A 90-yard TD run by Fournette capped the Jaguars scoring. With five interceptions against one of the top offenses in the league, and putting up a roadblock across the end zone, the Jaguars held Pittsburgh's "Killer B's" to just three field goals.

A week that began with Ben Roethlisberger chiding Antonio Brown for his behavior in the Steelers' previous game ended in disaster for the Pittsburgh quarterback and his team. "Let's just wait and see where we're at when the season is over".

It was a winning formula in the second half of last season, when he never attempted more than 36 passes during an eight-game winning streak. This week, that team was the Jacksonville Jaguars.

While the Steelers wait for a better Bryant, they can't afford not to play Rogers inside and put Smith-Schuster outside more often - or least try to create mismatches with McDonald. Roethlisberger targeted Brown a whopping 19 times Sunday.
