Recap

Rashard Mendenhall rushed for 146 yards in his return from injury as the Pittsburgh Steelers held off a late rally to post a 17-13 victory over the reeling Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday at Heinz Field.

Led by Mendenhall, who topped 100 yards for the first time this season, the Steelers (4-2) raced out to a 17-0 lead and handed the Jaguars their fifth straight loss.

Jacksonville rallied behind rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert and its defense shut out the Steelers in the second half.

Gabbert threw a scoring strike for the fourth consecutive game, but he couldn't lead the final touchdown drive the Jaguars (1-5) needed in the fourth quarter.

Jacksonville drove inside the Pittsburgh 30 in the fourth quarter but had to settle for a field goal. The Jaguars' final drive made it across midfield, but Gabbert's desperation pass on the final play fell incomplete in the end zone.
