If somebody had told you one of these teams would be 3-2 and the other 0-4 going into this contest, it likely would have been the other way around right? Well, sometimes things change.
Pittsburgh has been absolutely brutal this season, suffering its worst start since the 1960s before Chuck Noll arrived. Outside of Ben Roethlisberger, the offense has showed minimal signs of life while the defense has been nothing short of a trainwreck under esteemed coordinator Dick LeBeau.
New York has enjoyed a nice campaign thus far, coming off a Monday night win over the Atlanta Falcons on the road. The Jets have been buoyed by Geno Smith, who has completed 60.3 percent of his passes and thrown for 1,289 yards.
The defense is the main reason New York has remained in the hunt for an AFC playoff berth, ranking second in the NFL in yards per game allowed.
