All WR vs JAX

FBG says: Tough matchup. As usual, the Steelers boast one of the NFL's most explosive passing games. They're capable of stretching defenses to the limit on all levels of the field, and it's become nearly impossible to commit safety help to stop them deep. Both Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster boast the speed, smarts, and physicality to win route after route down the field. Brown remains the league's most versatile receiver, able to shred the middle of the field on intermediate routes or win deep down the sideline. Last week, he burned impressive Panthers rookie Donte Jackson for a long touchdown with speed and muscle, keeping on his go route and racing to the end zone after a catch he made look easy. And Smith-Schuster, who won't turn 22 until next week, is fast becoming a similarly tough cover. He's too big and quick to stop in the slot, and too fast to keep good track of downfield. Brown's production (6 catches for 77 yards a week) is still top-notch, but Smith-Schuster is actually outpacing him (6 for 85). Throw in dynamic tight end Vance McDonald and checkdown back James Conner, and Ben Roethlisberger is flush with scary weaponry on every dropback. As a result, he's posting his best yardage and touchdown rates in half a decade, and there's no Kryptonite in sight. Even the often-dominant Jacksonville defense has its work cut out for it in this matchup. The Jacksonville pass defense has fallen on hard times of late. The league's most suffocating group since early last season, they've now given up 285 yards or more in each of their last 2 games. Over that span they've allowed passers to complete 71% of throws, with 10 completions of 20+ yards and 6 touchdowns. Injuries have played a big role, as top cornerback A.J. Bouye missed both games and looks shaky for Week 11. (His backup, rookie Quenton Meeks, who impressed in Week 9, is also hurt.) Still, there's been noticeable drop-off elsewhere. Quarterbacks are throwing with much less pressure on them, slot receivers are finding tons of success underneath, and tight ends have caught five touchdowns over the past two weeks.
