These teams met in October, and Pittsburgh had a 362-223 yardage edge until a late 90-yard Leonard Fournette touchdown run. The Steelers were undone by five Ben Roethlisberger interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns.

Jacksonville is 6-2 against teams with winning records but was held to 313 yards or fewer in six of its eight true road games. Home teams in this round have the benefit of a bye to get rested and healthy -- Pittsburgh also rested its starters in Week 17, and Antonio Brown missed the final two games of the season -- while their opponents just battled through a playoff win.
