Originally written on Turn On The Jets  |  Last updated 10/11/13
After what was wake-up call to the nation, that this team is not some bottom-feeding push-over, the Jets return home to take on the 0-4 Steelers, looking to set up a match-up for first place in the AFC East when the Patriots come to town this week. Oh and the Giants are 0-6, so there’s that. A lot has happened so here’s everything you need to know heading into Sunday’ s game: Injury Report: OUT – Santonio Holmes, Dee Milliner QUESTIONABLE – Antonio Cromartie, Oday Aboushi Story Lines of Note:  Kellen Winslow Jr suspended 4 games for PED violation Cro Suffers Non-Contact Injury: Jets Dodge Bullet Garrard “Un-retires”  Santonio Mum on Comments Jets Prove They Are Ready for Prime Time Picks (If You Care About Such Things): Post Picks Sports Illustrated ESPN NYDN Other Links: Rex Friday Presser Tone Presser Jets Game Plan Special Teams Picking up The Slack Dan’s “Two Cents”: Although it pains me to say it, this has the makings of a classic let-down game, coming off of a big game on a short week, and playing yet another team that needs a win in the worst way. On top of that, if Antonio Cromartie is unable to play it will leave an already-thin secondary even thinner and I think I can speak on behalf of all Jets fans in saying that no one wants to see Kyle Wilson starting. On the other hand, the Steelers are not a great team by any means and are picking up every piece of “you know what” that hit the waiver wire to compensate for a rash of injuries. The Steelers are the epitome of a once-great team that has seen it’s core get old right before their eyes (any Yankee fans out there?). However, they are still a dangerous team with a Quarterback that will probably be in contention for the Hall of Fame given his record of success in the playoffs and multiple Super Bowl rings. Many Jets fans are probably conjuring memories of him slipping tackles and making just enough plays to beat them in the 2010 AFC Championship Game. But I would imagine that will be far from the case Sunday, considering how stout the Jets’ front seven is and how decimated the Steelers’ Offensive Line has been. If the Jets can wrap up “Big Ben” and obviously not turn the ball over, they will be playing for first place in the AFC East next week.
