New York Jets
The Pittsburgh Steelers
(1-1) beat the New York Jets
(1-1) 27-10, today at Heinz Field
from Pittsburgh, PA
This was a bad loss for the Jets as they couldn't do anything on offense since they scored 10 points in the early drives of the game.
Gang Green's defense wasn't going to be enough to beat the Steelers if the offense showed up and they flat-out didn't.
They needed this offense to step up like they did last week and it showed facing the Steelers instead of the Bills made a difference.
By the way, let the Mark Sanchez-Tim Tebow debates begin.
had two good drives in the game and that was it. The rest he went 10 for 27 with 138 passing yards and 1 touchdown pass.
had an awful game getting 11 carries for 23 rushing yards.
had 9 carries for 33 rushing yards.
wasn't used a lot as he had only one carrie for 22 yards.
caught the first TD reception of the game and that was the TD the Jets scored all day. Overall he made 3 catches for 28 yards including the TD reception.
caught two passes for 67 receiving yards.
made a 38 yard field goal.
made 6 punts for 272 yards and with only one staying inside the 20 yardline.
had two sacks and seven tackles.
made his season debut getting one sack and two tackles.
had 10 tackles.
had 10 tackles as well.
Jets offense had 16 first downs, 219 total yards and went 4 for 12 on 3rd down conversions.
Jets defense had three sacks, allowed 331 total yards and let Pittsburgh go 8 for 15 on 3rd conversions.
What a train wreck of a game to watch if you a Jets fan. This offense was too boring and they didn't use Tim Tebow enough on the wild cat.
All of this week, you will hear why the Jets should start Tim Tebow at QB instead of Mark Sanchez. That's complete nonsense!
They still would've lost this game even if Tim Tebow started at quarterback. Time will be ticking for Mark Sanchez if he struggles in the next few games.
- Week 3 - Their next game will be against the Miami Dolphins in LandShark Stadium from Miami, FL this Sunday afternoon (sep 23rd) at 1:00 pm on CBS (TV) and WEPN (Radio).

Whether or not you like Tim Tebow, you have to admit he garners attention wherever he ends up. First, in Florida, then in Denver and now, even as a backup, in New York, Tebow never struggles to gain attention.
Today, ESPN New York’s Rich Cimini published an extensive QA...
There was a media stir created this week when the New York Daily News reported that an NFL source told them that Tim Tebow could ask for a trade at the end of the season. The media goes crazy over Tim Tebow even when there’s nothing newsworthy going on with him, so you can imagine how they reacted once they found out that something newsworthy actually might be going on with him...
I know what you’re thinking (WTF), there is no way the New York Jets will start Tim Tebow this Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. But here is why it would be smart for the Jets to split the time between Sanchez and Tebow.

The second the Jets pulled the trigger on trading for Tim Tebow, it was only a matter of time before these articles started being written – and based on Sanchez’s performance on Sunday, he only managed to make it till the end of Week 2. Mark Sanchez was able to keep the Tebow conversation quiet after a stellar Week 1 performance, but Week 2 may serve as a wake-up call for all...

Contrary to what has been said about New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, he has performed decently against the Pittsburgh Steelers. In his first contest in 2010, Sanchez hit 19 of 29 passes for 170 yards, yet more importantly, he scored on a seven yard touchdown run that ultimately gave the Jets the lead and the win. In the AFC Championship Game of the same year...

Yeah, how’s that Jets’ offense doing now? After scoring 48 in the opener in a heavily defense and special teams aided effort, the Jets scored just 10 points last week and Mark Sanchez, who was 19 of 27 for 266 yards, 3 touchdowns, and a pick in the opener, completed just 10 of 27 for 138 yards and a touchdown against a Steeler defense missing Troy...

The Headline: Wakeup call for the Jets as Big Ben leads a dominating win
One team came into this game 1-0 on the back of a resounding week 1 victory while the other was facing serious questions about its future after a disappointing opening day loss where they were made to look relatively amateurish. In the NFL one week is a very long...
Because Ben Roethlisberger threw a game-clinching pick six in Denver last week and the Steelers lost to Peyton Manning, we were supposed to worry. And because Mark Sanchez went off on Buffalo’s sieve of a defense, we were supposed to take the Jets serious. The Steelers were favored by less than a touchdown in their home opener, a game they hadn’t lost since 2002.
