See, for me, I wouldn't have let Ben in.
According to Mande, a team official has informed him that Bortles is "aware" of the jokes that The Good Place cracks at his expense, and that the Jaguars have had a "great sense of humor about it", even inviting Mande and Jacinto to Jacksonville for last week's playoff game.
Two-time Super Bowl victor Roethlisberger has yet to confirm whether or not he intends to return for the Steelers next season, but hinted this week he was not ready to call time on his career.
But for now, it's probably safer to trust Tomlin when he says Brown will play Sunday. "That's all you've got to do".
Former Pitt running back James Conner (30) picks up yardage against the Atlanta Falcons in the first half Sunday, Aug. 20, 2017, at Heinz Field.
After an ugly win against the Buffalo Bills in the Wild Card round, the Jacksonville #Jaguars will have their biggest test of the season as they go to #Pittsburgh to face off against the Steelers.

"Like I said, we collectively, everyone - it starts with me to [offensive coordinator Nathaniel] Hackett to the assistant coaches to the players - we've got to do a better job. It doesn't really matter what happened outside of this facility". While Drew Brees completed passes to eight different receivers last week, having Thomas taken largely out of the equation would leave him with few reliable options against the second-ranked pass defense (192.4 points per game).
