The Steelers are at home for a second consecutive week, hosting a Jets team that’s struggling heading into Week 5.
Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown nine interceptions in his previous two outings, and the result is Gang Green have stumbled to 1-3 start. The Jets are low on alternate options at quarterback, and must figure things out against a Steelers team that is solid at home.
The Steelers are looking to build off last week’s 43-14 beatdown of the Chiefs. Ben Roethlisberger was lights out last week, and could face a shorthanded secondary if corner Darelle Revis is unable to play. Revis is dealing with a left hamstring injury, and will be a game-time decision for Sunday.
The Jets have lost three of their first four, and their hopes of preseason aspirations are quickly fading. According to ESPN, just 14 percent of 1-3 teams have made the playoffs since 1990.
