Jacksonville vs. Steelers: Instant Analysis, fourth quarter

Offense:  Two steps forward, one step back.  This unit was completely shutdown by the Jacksonville defense, managing to get one first down the entire quarter.  Ben Roethlisberger did not complete a pass, fumbled once,  and was sacked twice.  Meanwhile, running backs combined for 25 yards on seven carries.

Defense:  After giving up a big third quarter drive, the defense got their act together in the fourth quarter, giving up three points (in the aftermath of Daniel Speulveda's horrible punt) and three first downs.  The Brett Keisel sack on first down of Jacksonville's final possession was a  big play.

Special Teams:  Damiel Sepulveda had two punts in the quarter, one for 55 yards and the other for an unbelievable 23 yards.  His 39-yard net average was actually one yard better than his net average for the game overall.
