Default Novacek picks Steelers to win with defense

Quote:
Jaguars (11-5) at Steelers (10-6)

These two teams match up so well. They are both physical, hard-nosed clubs, focused on running the ball and playing tough defense.


The Steelers, bogged down by injuries, aren?t playing as well as they did earlier in the season ? they haven?t been quite as dominating. But Pittsburgh will step up and play a good game here. They will grind out some long drives, and the defense will force the Jags into mistakes.


That?s the one crucial thing Jacksonville hasn?t done very much: turn the ball over. David Garrard just doesn?t throw interceptions. But the Jags won?t be quite up to par, especially on offense.

Pick: Steelers, 17-10.

Interesting, I hope this analysis is accurate. With Garrard making his first playoff start, it may very well be.

I think the Steelers win 26-21 with forcing turnovers.
