The second week of the year for the Jets and the Steelers is going to be crucial to say the least. New York is at least playing on a bit of house money after beating the Bills last week, but Pittsburgh doesn’t want to fall to 0-2 against a pair of teams that might be competing with it for Wild Card slots. New York just isn’t all that good, and DB Darrelle Revis might be limited or held out after suffering a concussion last week. RB Rashard Mendenhall is going to be out again for Pittsburgh, but S Ryan Clark should be back and S Troy Polamalu has been cleared to play. It just feels like the Jets are in over their head coming to the Steel City, and it’ll show in what should be a relatively good game for the hosts in our eyes. Look for QB Ben Roethlisberger to take advantage of the New York secondary if Revis is out, as both WR Emmanuel Sanders and WR Mike Wallace could be in for big time games.
