Week 5 Recap 
Posted on July 12, 2018 at 10:44 AM.
For the second straight week the Steelers overcame a slow start to dominate an expansion franchise. After Erric Pegram fumbled on the first play from scrimmage for the Steelers, a play in which he would leave with an injured ankle, the Jaguars would quickly turn it to seven with a Mark Brunell TD pass. The Steelers would then on their second possession drive all the way into FG range to have a Norm Johnson kick blocked. The Jaguars would then use that momentum to go up 10-0. The Steelers would once again drive deep into Jags territory. The drive turned up fruitless as O'Donnell failed to convert a fourth and goal from the one foot line on a QB sneak. The Steelers defense would bail the team out by forcing a punt on the ensuing drive. Then an explosion of big plays happened for the Steelers. Bam Morris ripped off a 75 yard TD run. On the following kick off DB Randy Fuller would force a fumble. Fellow reserve DB Alvoid Mays would scoop it up and race into the endzone. The Steelers would then force a quick punt after three straight Brunell incompletions. O'Donnell would then find a streaking Ernie Mills down the sideline as he raced 80 yards into the end zone. In a minute and 24 seconds the score went from 10-0 to 24-10 in the Steelers favor. The Steelers defense continued to harrass Brunell sacking him 6 times and intercepting him a total of three times. O'Donnell would tack another bomb on to his box score with a 71 yard shot down the sideline to Yancey Thigpen early in the third. The Steelers were the first playoff team from last season that Jaguars have played this year. Making the NFL believe that their 4-0 record entering the season was a mirage.

Stories from around the league:

The Rams and Giants fought to a 20-20 tie. The first of the 1995 season. At points it seemed as neither team wanted to win as poor qb play on both sides was very apparent throughout the game.

Derrick THomas forced a sack fumble in the closing minutes of the game to help propel his Chiefs past the expansion Texans.

Steve Walsh threw 4 second half INTs leading to the opposing Vikings scoring 28 unanswered 2nd half points as the Bears fell to the Vikings 49-28.

Jim Kelly threw 3 INTs in the Bills first lost of the season to the banged up Bengals who are now playing their 3rd QB of the season.
