Game Joe Mixon Jersey The Jacksonville Jaguars generally avoided mistakes and allowed the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense to be the ones to self-destruct with two pick sixes in the third quarter in a 23-9 upset in Week 5.
Jacksonville has been a difficult team to figure out in 2017 with unpredictable ups and downs on a week-to-week basis. After losing to the New York Jets in a game filled with errors last week, the Jaguars were big underdogs against the Steelers.
Mitchell was penalized for roughing the passer for hitting Smith after he threw a pass late in the third quarter of Sunday’s 19-13 Steelers victory. Smith was immediately angry about the hit, getting up and yelling at Mitchell.
After the game Sunday, Smith said he was fired up after Mitchell’s hit but wasn’t able to say whether he thought it was intentional because he hadn’t yet had a chance to watch video of the play.
I don’t think this is a first offense, either, Smith said of Mitchell. I think when you start looking at … repeat offenders, I think when they get shots at quarterbacks, they’re going to take them.
The video shows what it shows. I wasn’t trying to take Alex Smith’s knees out, Mitchell said. I went up to him and told him that. … It’s just one of those things you don’t want to see in the football game.
What we’re taking for granted, though, is just how little the Saints have around Brees. This isn’t a team with Jimmy Graham and a boatload of high draft picks at the skill positions. The Saints traded away Brandin Cooks and replaced him in their receiving corps with Ted Ginn Jr. Their top wideout is Michael Thomas, a second-round pick in 2016 who was the sixth wide receiver chosen. Joining him is undrafted free agent Willie Snead, who just returned to the lineup in Week 5.
