Jacksonville Jaguars top 25 plays of 2014: Abry Jones' strip-sack vs. Steelers

We're counting down the 25 best plays of 2014. Who made it to No. 17? Abry Jones and Andre Branch combining for a strip-sack-recovery against the Steelers.

The Week 5 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers was one of them. Late in the game, the Steelers were only leading 10-9 and driving. Within field goal range, Ben Roethlisberger set up to pass and was flushed out of the pocket. Before he could throw it away, Abry Jones...

The realistic optimism of Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger and scoring 30 points in every game

The expectations of the Steelers quarterback may sound lofty at first, but his goal is not that far off from being accomplished.

Yesterday Roethlisberger stated one of his goals for the offense in 2015. "We want to start fast and we want to be able to put 30 points on the board in every game," he said according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "That group in front of me is as good as any in the...
