Highlight photos from the last regular season match up between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2011. The Steelers defeated the Jaguars 17-13.

The Steelers wasted no time, scoring on their opening drive of the game. QB Ben Roethlisberger led the team on a 10-play, 87-yard drive, that was capped off by Mendenhall's eight-yard touchdown run. The Steelers scored again on their next drive, when Roethlisberger found WR Mike Wallace for a 28-yard touchdown. Wallace finished with a game-high 76 yards on two receptions, including a long of 48 yards. It marked the fifth straight game Wallace had a reception of 40+ yards.

K Shaun Suisham connected on a 21-yard field goal to give the Steelers a 17-0 lead. For the second consecutive game, the Steelers scored on their first three drives of the game. The Steelers' defense dominated the first half, holding the Jaguars to 68 total yards, while sacking QB Blaine Gabbert four times. The Jaguars found a way to score, when K Josh Scobee connected from 46 yards out, and the Steelers went into halftime with a 17-3 lead.

Late in the third quarter, Gabbert found WR Jason Hill for an 18-yard touchdown to cut the lead to 17-10. Late in the fourth quarter, Scobee connected from 45 yards out to cut the lead to 17-13. The Jaguars had a chance to win the game on their final drive, but Gabbert's hail-mary attempt was knocked down by Steelers' defenders.
