The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off their bye week.  They are 0-4. The New York Jets are coming off a come back victory over the Atlanta Falcons.  They are a surprising 3-2. Here are three bold predictions:Geno Smith will have less interceptions than Ben RoethlisbergerGoing into last week Smith was tied for a league high 11 turnovers including eight interceptions.  Roethlisberger has six turnovers in four games. The Steelers defense is ranked 1oth in total defense an have exactly zero takeaways this year. The game will end with Smith being intercepted twice.  However, Roethlisberger will be intercepted three times. Le'Veon Bell will run for 101 yardsBell played in his first game in week four.  The game against the Minnesota Vikings was also in London England.  Now that Bell is on this side of the pond, he will ball out.  Yes, the Jets' defense is ranked second against the run.  Bell will explode the defense.  He will run for 101 yards and two touchdowns. The Jets Defense will outplay the Steelers defense in a losing effortOkay, this isn't so much bold as it is a statistical fact.  The Jets' defense is the second ranked defense in the league.  The Steelers' defense is the 10th ranked defense in the league. The Jets are allowing 299 yards per game.  The Steelers are allowing 321.8 yards per game. The Jets will allow the Steelers offense to accumulate 421 yards.  The Steelers will hold the Jets to 201 total yards.The Jets defense will force three interceptions and two fumbles.  The Steelers defense will force two interceptions and no fumbles.  The difference?  The Steelers will return the interceptions for a pick six.  While the Jets offense will be unable to capitalize on the turnovers forced by their defense.It ends with a Steeler victory.  Sloppy and ugly but a win is a win.
