The Jets pulled off the surprise victory on Monday Night against the Atlanta Falcons. The Pittsburgh Steelers are still looking for that first win of the season. The Steelers took away all of the games in the locker room and are trying to focus only on football. They have been struggling. The Jets will be without their top pass catcher Kellen Winslow. He was injured, but he was also suspended for use of PEDs.

Steelers Player to Watch: Le’Veon Bell
Le’Veon Bell started his first game of the season and he hopes to keep the running game rolling. He finished his first game with 57 yards rushing and 2 touchdowns on 16 carries. He was expected to be the starting back at the beginning of the year, but he was sidelined with a foot injury and had to watch for the first 3 games of the year.
Jets Player to Watch: Geno Smith
Geno had his best start of the season on Monday Night and will be looking to put together consecutive good performances. Smith finished his night against the Falcons completing 16-of-20 passes for 199 yards and three touchdowns. He will be looking to do something like that all over again.
Matchup to Watch: Geno Smith vs Steelers Defense
Geno Smith is still young and is going to have his ups and downs. He had a really nice game last week, but could totally bomb it this time around. He will be going up against a Steeler defense that has not had a takeaway yet this season. He was tied for the lead league for turnovers going into Monday Night, but he was able to have a turnover free game that night.
The Steelers have been playing dreadful this season. Their offensive line has not been able to block anyone and Big Ben is getting murdered on the field. The Jets are going to get after Big Ben and do their best to protect the football on offense. They have been able to find wins to this point, I am sure they will be able to take a ‘W’ against the reeling Pittsburgh Steelers.
Jets 17, Steelers 13
