Steelers Vs. Jaguars: Pittsburgh Looks To Snap Four-Game Home Losing Streak In Games Against Jacksonville

The Steelers look to snap a four-game home losing streak to Jacksonville when they host the struggling Jaguars at Heinz Field on Sunday

The Pittsburgh Steelers hope to build upon their well-rounded 38-17 win over the Tennessee Titans when they host the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday at Heinz Field. Jacksonville has dropped their past four games after winning their season opener against the Titans. Though they've yet to win with rookie first round draft pick Blaine Gabbert under center, Jack Del Rio is confident that the team is making progress each week.

The Jaguars and Steelers history may not go back very long (Jacksonville only joined the league in 1995), but the two teams have had a fairly solid rivalry since then dating back to their AFC Central days. Jacksonville leads the all-time series 11-9, thanks in large part to three wins in the past four meetings. Interestingly enough, the Jaguars have also won the past four matchups played in Pittsburgh. Two of those wins came in 2007, Mike Tomlin's first season, including the Jaguars' divisional round playoff win in the snow at Heinz Field. Tomlin has only lost six other games at home as coach of the Steelers (26-8, .765).

We'll have much more preview coverage and analysis leading up to the Week 6 matchup.
