Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers look to grab a win in their home-opener against the New York Jets on Sunday.
Pittsburgh couldn't get much offense going against the Broncos, as they rushed for just 75 yards, and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger only completed 22-of-40 passes in the loss. Despite their struggles in Week 1, the Steelers are six-point favorites, according to OddsShark. The over/under is currently set at 41.5.
New York is coming off a 48-28 pounding of the Buffalo Bills last Sunday. Mark Sanchez led the way for the Jets, completing 19-of-27 passes for 266 yards and three touchdowns, and the Jets' powerful, stifling pass defense picked off Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick three times in the win.
Kickoff is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. ET at Heinz Field, and the game will be televised on CBS.
