Jaguars 29-Steelers 28

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been in the National Football League since 1933. There have been great Steelers teams, there have been lousy Steelers teams, and there has been every degree of team in between. They have, however, shared one common thread, all 75 of 'em.

When the Steelers can't run, the Steelers can't win. Doesn't matter if their generous opponents try to give the game away in the last 15 minutes. A Steeler bunch that won't run for 2-point conversions or can't run for a game-clinching first down will lose, as it did.

Football justice was served. Jacksonville has played well enough this season to deserve a playoff win. And a win is all they're going to get, too. The Patriots don't even need to play a running back to beat the Jags. Shouldn't be close.
