Jets vs Steelers Preview

Both the Pittsburgh Steelers (1-2) and New York Jets (1-2) face the  precarious prospect of falling to 1-3  when matching up in the Steel City on Sunday.

Second-year Jets quarterback Zach Wilson makes his regular season debut after sustaining a leg injury during the preseason. Wilson joined the Jets in 2021 as the No. 2 pick in the draft amid hype from his standout 2020 season with BYU.

Wilson threw for 2,334 yards and nine touchdowns versus 11 interceptions in 2021. His performance amid another losing season for the Jets left unanswered questions, which gets to start answering with his play on Sunday. Jets head coach Robert Saleh understands it will take time.

“Yeah, he’s going to have to feel his way through, but like everything else, the expectation is he comes out and he plays to the best of his ability,” Saleh said via ESPN’s Rich Cimini. “Whatever that is, it is, and you’ll be proud of it. Then, from there, we just find ways to get better.”

Jets backup quarterback Joe Flacco held down the fort for the first three weeks with 901 yards passing for touchdowns versus three interceptions. The Steelers will see a different look from the Jets offense since Wilson possesses more mobility than Flacco does.

“Zach is a different player than Joe, so obviously the plan is going to be a hair different in certain ways,” offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur said via ESPN.

The Steelers would like to get a hair better on defense, allowing 22 points and 412.7 total yards per game. Defense had its struggles against the Cleveland Browns last week in a 29-17 loss, and the Steelers gave a 44-yard touchdown pass the week before at New England.

Steelers quarterback Mitch Trubisky has 569 yards passing for two touchdowns versus as an interception as the offense looks to take flight. Pittsburg cracked 20 points only once thus far, which happened in Week 1 when Chris Boswell hit a game-winning field goal.

“We gotta start fast,” Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said on his weekly show. “We got to win possession downs. We gotta be on schedule.”

New York could present the opportunity for the Steelers to gain more confidence. The Jets give up 27 points per game — seventh most in the league. The Jets also allow 336.3 total yards per game. Trubisky may have to tune out those facts along with any outside calls for first-round draft pick Kenny Pickett to take over at quarterback.

”You’ve got to keep the blinders on,” Trubisky said via The Associated Press. ”You’ve got to block out the noise, continue to stay focused on the task at hand and just focus on what we’re doing in here. Focus on the guys and just continue to get better and pull together.”
