Jaguars Enjoying Their Moment, Continuing Much Deserved Trash Talk
I picked the Jacksonville Jaguars to upset the Pittsburgh Steelers, but I was in the minority.
Many didn't believe the Jags had a shot, and Pittsburgh overlooked them. Now the Jags are letting them hear it.
Multiple reports suggested the Steelers were looking past the Jags, ahead to an AFC Championship matchup with the Patriots, despite the fact that Jacksonville crushed Pittsburgh earlier in the season.
Whether it be shots at quarterback Blake Bortles, or a lack of acknowledgement at all, the Jaguars showed up with a huge chip on their shoulder, metaphorically punched the Steelers in the mouth, and punched their ticket to the AFC Championship game.
Jacksonville is talking trash to anyone who doubted them.
Malik Jackson stepped into teammate Calais Campbell's postgame interview to share his feelings about Bortles, and take a shot at Tennesee Titans defensive end Jurrell Casey, who two weeks ago said Blake would choke in the postseason.

Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, a 1st team AP All-Pro, reminded Pittsburgh what happens when they played the Jags this year.

Jacksonville is a 9 point underdog next Sunday in their road matchup with the New England Patriots, but Ramsey and the Jags aren't concerned.
