There was a lot of offense produced by the Steelers today during their Divisional Round Game vs. the Jaguars at Heinz Field. A lot of yards. A lot of points. But ultimately, not enough of either, which meant there also was a lot of disappointment produced.
There were some eye-popping statistics and several highlights film moments, but in the end it all went for naught because the Steelers were eliminated by the Jaguars, 45-42.
Le’Veon Bell led the team in rushing with 67 yards on 16 carries (4.2 average) and he scored on an 8-yard run in the fourth quarter after taking a lateral from Ben Roethlisberger. Bell also caught nine passes for another 88 yards, and his receiving touchdown came on a 19-yard one-handed catch that converted a third-and-9.
Bell is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week.
Also considered were Antonio Brown, who caught seven passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns; Ben Roethlisberger, who completed 37-of-58 (63.8 percent) for 469 yards, with five touchdowns, one interception, and a rating of 110.5; Vance McDonald, who caught 10 passes for 112 yards; Sean Davis, who led the team with 12 tackles; and Artie Burns, who led the team in passes defensed with two.
