It’s the Kielbasa Kid…

…and can we talk Steelers Football? Is that alright? I don’t want to say that Jacksonville has had the Steelers number since they came into the league in 1995 when they were put in the AFC North but the Jags have been a thorn in the Steelers side ever since. By the way, whose idea was it to put a Florida Team in the AFC North? Obviously it was someone who flunked out of geography class since it would have made more sense to put the Carolina Panthers in the AFC North since they also came into the league in 1995. Maybe the oversight is why the Steelers always play Carolina in the final pre season game of the year. Before Sundays game Jacksonville owned an overall record of 14 and 12 against Pittsburgh. That includes the playoffs. The most recent being a Divisional game which would have been a chance to get payback after an embarrassing 30-9 loss to Jacksonville earlier in the regular season only to lose in a shootout 45-42 and both losses at Heinz field? Many felt Pittsburgh was looking past Jacksonville to a possible match up with New England in what would have been an AFC Championship game. So this year would the 9 and 0 Steelers put their undefeated record on the line and be looking past the 1-8 Jags again, this time to a rematch with the Ravens in just 4 days? The way the game started had me wondering. Jacksonville’s opening drive seemed to go effortlessly down the field that led to a 41 yard field goal. But it was all down hill for the Jags after that. They got cute right away too with an on side kick that blew up in their face after scoring 3.  It’s a shame that led to the first missed field goal for the Wizard of Boz but he didn’t miss any after that as the Steelers scored 27 unanswered points that included two touchdown passes from Big Ben,  one to Chase Claypool, the other to Eric Ebron and one run in by Benny Snell Jr. Two picks by Minkha Fitzpatrick and Terrell Edmonds and you knew the Steelers weren’t looking past anyone on this day. And while the Jaguars have had the Steelers number over the years, Thanksgiving has had the Steelers number over the years too, of course Pittsburgh has never been undefeated by Thanksgiving either.
