What a whirlwind couple of weeks it has been for Mike Tomlin and his determined Pittsburgh Steelers outfit. The AFC North big boys are the only NFL team yet to taste defeat this season.

On the other hand, Doug Marrone’s Jacksonville Jaguars are at the bottom of the AFC South Division table behind the Houston Texans.

With Gardner Minshew still doubtful, will rookie quarterback Jake Luton start once again this weekend? Here’s a detailed look at both teams, along with injury updates and Week 11 Game Day predictions.

Can Jacksonville Jaguars pull off the biggest upset of 2020?

Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan has suffered 99 losses since assuming ownership of the AFC South franchise in November 2011. Doug Marrone’s team is currently on an 8-game losing streak.

That is one of the worst streaks in the league, apart from the New York Jets, of course. Will rookie quarterback Jake Luton be the man to put a halt to that?

If he does intend to do that, Luton will need some support from promising running back James Robinson. The home team is sweating on the fitness of WR Collin Johnson and CB Sidney Jones IV. But the defense will have to be absolutely flawless if they want a ‘miracle’ win on Sunday.

Can Ben Roethlisberger-led Pittsburgh Steelers maintain their unbeaten run?

Coach Mike Tomlin is finally starting to get the applause he deserves for turning the Pittsburgh Steelers into consistent performers, season after season.

The return of old warhorse Ben Roethlisberger has been a blessing for the Steelers. Big Ben has been efficient in the middle while serving as a leader in the dressing room.

WR JuJu Smith-Schuster and RB James Conner will also be key components for the visitors on Sunday. TE Eric Ebron and rookie Chase Claypool have also been incredibly potent in attack over the last 9 weeks.

This should be just another routine win for the boys from Pittsburgh. With utmost respect to the Jaguars, they are no match for this Steelers offense.

We don’t possibly see how a young QB such as Jake Luton will threaten one of the best defensive teams in the league. This win is a matter of ‘when’ and not ‘what if’.
