The Jaguars are trying to relive Heinz Field history 10 years later

The 2007 Jaguars did something no non-division team had done before, and none has done since

After rushing for more than 200 yards and beating them in the regular season, the Jacksonville Jaguars return to Heinz Field for a postseason game against the favored and division-champion Steelers. They do so with a defense that sacked and intercepted Ben Roethlisberger, a larcenous secondary with a shutdown, big-play cornerback, a running back who tortured them in the first meeting and a quarterback who could make more big plays with his feet rather than his arm.

Strange as it may seem, this was the curious and parallel narrative 10 years ago when the 2007 Jaguars came to Pittsburgh and beat the Steelers twice in a four-week span, the latter ending the Steelers’ season.
