It would be easy for the 9-0 Pittsburgh Steelers to look past travelling to Jacksonville to take on the one-win Jaguars. The Steelers have a divisional matchup against their chief rival, the Baltimore Ravens, in primetime on Thanksgiving Day coming up next week.

The 1-8 Jaguars appear to be simply a formality.

But those Jaguars have changed over the course of this season. After handing the keys to the offense to sixth-round draft pick Jake Luton, the Jaguars have held in games against tough competition, losing the last two contests by a combined six points.

Sunday's matchup in Jacksonville could be a trap game the Steelers will regret.


Pittsburgh Steelers at Jacksonville Jaguars Betting Odds

Steelers odds: -500

Jaguars odds: +385

The Steelers are a -10.5 point favorite against the Jaguars on Sunday.
