Former Steelers DB Makes Huge Play to Skyrocket Playoff Hopes



Steelers Playoff Terrell Edmunds

The Steelers playoff hopes are getting some help from a former player. Terrell Edmunds intercepted Trevor Lawrence, which gave Tennessee the ball in Jacksonville territory. The Titans would later punch it in with Tyjae Spears scored his second touchdown of the game. Currently, the Titans lead 21-13 at halftime.

Lawerence has thrown two interceptions and threw another one to Sean Murphy-Bunting. All of that has led the Titans to coming back into this one and putting up significant points.

Lawrence has been dealing with shoulder and finger injuries and also missed his team’s Week 17 win over the Carolina Panthers. Lawrence was limited in both of the Jaguars’ practices so far this week.

It’s been an up-and-down season for the 2021 first overall pick. After breaking out in his second season in 2022, he’s taken a statistical step back in 2023.

The Jaguars are currently in first place in the AFC South, and must beat the Titans this Sunday to secure the division crown and a first-round home game. If the Jaguars lose, they will find themselves all the way out of the playoff picture.

The Steelers will get into the playoffs with a Jaguars loss. If the Jaguars come back, Pittsburgh would need the Bills to lose. That is what the Steelers playoff hopes ride on now.
