Steelers vs Jaguars Preseason Game Info

2022 NFL Preseason Game
Pittsburgh Steelers (1-0) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-2)
Date: Saturday, August 20, 2022
Time: 8 p.m. ET
Venue: TIAA Bank Field — Jacksonville, FL

Week 2 of the NFL preseason includes a showdown between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Jacksonville Jaguars. The Steelers got the post-Ben Roethlisberger era off the right foot last week, securing a 32-25 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

Meanwhile, the Jaguars have had a preseason to forget. After losing the Hall of Fame Game, Doug Pederson's squad lost another game to the Cleveland Browns, 24-13, on Friday. Considering how this year was supposed to be a fresh start, falling to 0-3 certainly won't help.

Steelers vs Jaguars Prediction & Pick

Steelers fans have been able to count on their team showing up in recent preseasons. After all, Pittsburgh is 7-2 in its last nine exhibition games. After the Steelers put up 409 total yards and four passing touchdowns against the Seahawks, things look quite promising for the 'Black and Yellow.'

On the other hand, the Jaguars are an abysmal 1-8 in their last nine preseason outings. Their performances so far this year haven't shown that they can handle the Steelers if the latter brings their full firepower this weekend, making Pittsburgh the likely winner.

Final Score Prediction: Steelers: 28 | Jaguars: 15

After their previous preseason performances, it's tough to like the Jaguars as the favorites here. The Steelers looked a lot better in their sole exhibition game and likely have the deeper overall roster as well. I'll take the Steelers pulling off the moneyline upset here.
