    when the Steelers lost to the Jaguars in a playoff game on January 14 Color Rush Quinnen Williams Jersey , 2018 and his long absence from the playing field is set to end this Sunday when the Jets host the Bills to kick off the 2019 season.Bell didn’t play last season because he didn’t come to an agreement with the Steelers on a long-term contract and wasn’t willing to play out a second straight year under the terms of the franchise tag. Bell’s on the Jets now and he said he’s going to show the Steelers that they made a mistake in letting him go.“It didn’t work out in Pittsburgh. I’m out of Pittsburgh. And now I’m in a new city, a new team, and a lot of people haven’t even given us a chance cause they don’t like our roster,” Bell said, via . “They think we don’t have the talent. I’m thinking I’m going to show everybody. I’m going to show people that, look, Pittsburgh had something special and they let it go. That’s what I’m going to go out there and do.”Plenty of people are waiting to see if Bell can return to his past form after the long layoff. Those in Pittsburgh may not wind up caring all that much if he does as long as James Conner does well for the Steelers, but the Jets will certainly be thrilled if they have something special in their backfield. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars are finished with the “Payback Tour.”Now it’s on to a tougher challenge, a more high-profile matchup.The Jaguars (3-1) will play at Kansas City (3-0) next week — a game that features the league’s top defense against one of the league’s most potent offenses.“We pride ourselves on being a really good defense so this is a great challenge for us,” defensive end Calais Campbell said following a 31-12 victory against the New York Jets on Sunday. “We know they’ve got firepower everywhere. Everywhere. I’m looking forward to the challenge. This defense, we believe in ourselves New York Jets Jersey 2019 , so this is an opportunity for us to go and see what happens.”The Jaguars have put together four impressive defensive outings to start the season, allowing 324 yards against the New York Giants in the opener and then getting better every week since.New England (302 yards), Tennessee (233) and the New York Jets (178) scored a combined three touchdowns against Jacksonville’s vaunted defense. Two of those came off turnovers. New England’s first touchdown in Week 2 followed DJ Chark’s fumble near midfield, and the Jets’ lone touchdown Sunday also was gifted. T.J. Yeldon fumbled at the Jacksonville 29-yard line. Trumaine Johnson scooped it up and returned it to the 5 .Sam Darnold connected with Jordan Leggett in the back of the end zone three plays later.The Jets managed little else.The Chiefs should be more difficult to cover, between speedster Tyreek Hill, fellow receiver Sammy Watkins, tight end Travis Kelce, running back Kareem Hunt and quarterback Patrick Mahomes.“The secondary welcomes these games,” Jaguars safety Barry Church said. “We know they’re going to throw the ball all over the place, so as a secondary we’ve got to go out there, prove that we’re one of top secondaries.“They have options at every level like slot, outside receiver Quinnen Williams New York Jets Jersey , tight end, running back and a quarterback that can throw it a hundred yards so that’s going to be a great challenge for us. But I think we have the players that will step up and be ready for the challenge.”Jacksonville had plenty of motivation the last four weeks: top executive Tom Coughlin’s first game against his former team (Giants), a rematch of the AFC title game (Patriots), a division game against the only team that swept the Jags in 2017 (Titans) and a third consecutive home game against the team that snubbed Doug Marrone for its head coaching job in 2015.Next up are the high-powered Chiefs.“We’ve got another game, a great team we’re playing next week,” Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue said. “We’ve got KC, and that’s what our focus is on now. Like I said, we’ve got to this win, enjoy it now. It’s in the past.”Here are some other things to know following Jacksonville’s win over the Jets:FOURNETTE OUTJacksonville’s biggest concern is the health of running back Leonard Fournette, who re-injured his strained right hamstring after missing the last two games. Fournette ran 11 times for 30 yards before leaving for good.“Anytime you come back and you’re ready to go and then all of a sudden you get injured again, it’s not a good sign,” Marrone said.MESSAGE SENT?Marrone insisted he followed the chart Red Quinnen Williams Jersey , calling for a 2-point conversion after a fourth-down touchdown run in the final seconds of a lopsided game. Few believed him.Marrone was seemingly sending a message to the Jets , the team that passed on him three years ago and hired Todd Bowles.“He doesn’t like those guys,” Jaguars defensive tackle Malik Jackson said. “I don’t know what they did to him, but he doesn’t like them.”Marrone said he had no hidden agenda or extra motivation, which was hard to believe considering he took a subtle shot at Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson in late August.DARNOLD STRUGGLESJets rookie Sam Darnold was harassed early and often , getting sacked three times and nearly throwing three interceptions.Darnold completed 17 of 34 passes for 167 yards. He got little help since the 1-2 punch of Bilal Powell and Isaiah Crowell combined for 26 yards rushing.“We’ve got to make plays that were there,” Darnold said. “I’ve got to make throws that are there and not think too much, take what they give me and we’ll start to find completions and get into a rhythm.”
