Is There Such a Thing as a Bad Victory?

No, they’re all good. But Pittsburgh continued to baffle as they hung on for dear life to defeat a terrible Jaguars team at Heinz field.

The Steelers held a 17-3 lead at half time but the score did not indicate their dominance of the over-matched Jacksonville Jaguars. The balanced offensive attack gained over 300 yards while the defense stuffed the Jaguars over and over, yielding less than 70.

But the teams must have switched uniforms before the 3rd quarter because this was a game of two halves. The Steelers offense put on a display of ineptitude while the defense couldn’t get out of its own way. After a quick Steelers 3-and-out the Jacksonvilles spent 10 minutes on an 80 yard touchdown drive aided by a roughing-the-punter penalty and a 4th and 2 conversion. To answer, the Steelers punted 5 times and gained exactly 50 second-half yards.

Thankfully, the clock ran out, preserving a 17-13 victory.

Next up, a road game at Steelers West.
