Sometimes, dreams can turn into nightmares.
For Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, he's hoping his rematch against the Jacksonville Jaguars defense is the complete opposite. After one of the worst performances of his career, he's ready for redemption.
Before he gets ahead of himself, AJ Bouye is here to stop him right in his tracks.
The Jaguars' cornerback reminded Big Ben to be careful what he wishes for.
Jaguars CB A.J. Bouye on Big Ben wanting rematch: "Be careful what you wish for. This is what he wanted. This is what he's going to get."— Mark Long (@APMarkLong) January 8, 2018
Roethlisberger is a seasoned veteran who has had his fair share of big performances in big games, but maybe he shouldn't poke the bear that almost made him retire.
The first time Big Ben decided to travel into the jaws of the Jaguar, he did not escape without a few scars. The former Super Bowl champ threw for no touchdowns and a staggering five interceptions on his way to an abysmal 37.2 QB rating.
Bouye and the Jaguars defense didn't just have a great game against a bad offense last week. They've been dominating teams all year, finishing second in yards allowed, points allowed, and takeaways this season. With four Pro Bowlers including Bouye, they have studs all over the field that can make Big Ben regret his words extremely quickly.
We'll have to wait until Sunday to see if Big Ben will have the last laugh, or if Bouye and Sacksonville will make the future Hall of Famer wish the Bills somehow pulled off a miraculous victory and eliminated the big bad Jags.
