New York Jets
The New York Jets return home after a stunning road win against the defending NFC South champion Atlanta Falcons. Thanks to Geno Smith’s third game winning drive of the season, the Jets went into Atlanta and beat Matt Ryan and his fantasy football offense. Standing at 3-2, the Jets have begun to turn some heads behind a potent defensive line, a rejuvenated offensive line, and a poised rookie QB. On Week 6, they welcome the six-time Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers. Let’s get to know the opponent for Week 6.

CBS 2 in New York is reporting that Jets head coach Rex Ryan is likely to return in 2014.
Ryan once an embattled coach, may be doing his best coaching job this season and has the Jets at 3-3 after a tough loss to the Steelers Sunday afternoon.
A season supposed to be Rex Ryan’s last with Jets has gone so well one source said “the arrow now points to Rex being back next season...
The New York Jets were looking like anything but a playoff contender.
Then, they pulled off an upset victory last Monday at Atlanta, and the postseason didn't seem so silly a notion. Now, after a disappointing loss to Pittsburgh, they're right back where they were.
And, this all came within the past week.
It has certainly been a roller-coaster season already for Geno Smith...

The Patriots week 2 game against rookie head coach Rex Ryan's New York Jets in 2009 has been in the news again recently.
Last week, the Patriots were held without a touchdown for the first time since that day, one of the first and last times Ryan's boasting was ever backed up on the field.
The Jets were a seemingly new team then,...
Back when Rob Ryan was coaching the New England Patriots, he looked more like a fictional relief pitcher than his identical twin, Rex Ryan.
The current New Orleans Saints’ defensive coordinator looked nearly identical to Kenny Powers of Eastbound & Down during his time in New England. Ryan was the Patriots’ linebackers coach from 2000-2003, so there’s really no excuse...
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Rex Ryan is expected to be back for another season as the Jets head coach.
In a season which was expected to be Ryan’s last, the Jets have started out better than imagined and the team appears to be showing some positive signs of improvement across the board. The season is still young, but a source close to the situation says “the arrow now...
Rookie quarterback Geno Smith, coming off his best performance as a pro, was held in check during the first half. Pittsburgh fought like a desperate team on the brink of despair, forcing pressure on Smith.The second round pick didn't succumb to the Steelers' exotic, makeshift pass rush though. He kept his cool, completing eight of 12 pass attempts for 81 yards in the first...

Santonio Holmes made roughly the same amount of noise in his press conference Thursday as he likely will on the field on Sunday. Rex Ryan suggested Thursday that Holmes will probably miss Sunday’s matchup against the Steelers while the wide receiver was evasive with the media a week after saying “I can’t throw it to myself and catch it otherwise I would.”
“The fact he...
Florham Park - Something seemed weird when Rex Ryan was asked to address why tight end Kellen Winslow hasn't been at practice. I'll admit, I came up with some dramatic scenarios. In reality, it's slightly juicy. The NFL announced today that Winslow is suspended for four games for violating the league policy on performance enhancing drugs. This means Winslow won't...
The New York Jets were coming off a Monday night high. The Pittsburgh Steelers were coming off a four game losing streak low. Here are three things we have learned:Still a rookieGeno Smith played well last Monday night. But he is a rookie. He struggles with consistency. So it was only fitting that this game he once again looked like a rookie. Smith was 19-of-34 for 201...
It's been an up and down opening stretch for Jets rookie QB Geno Smith, but last week he looked like "West Virginia Geno" to a couple of his former teammates now with the Steelers.
Publisher Nick St. Denis, associate editor Dan Begnoche and senior contributor Sean Donovan pick the New York Jets' AFC contest with the Pittsburgh Steelers.Nick's take:Everything about this one feels like a trap game... for the 3-2 Jets, not the 0-4 Steelers. Pittsburgh is bound to snap out of it, and a two-week break before facing the Jets, who are on a short week, is what...

Thanks to a third quarter interception Sunday by Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark against the New York Jets, the team avoided becoming the first in NFL history to start a season with five consecutive games without a takeaway.
Clark picked off a pass by Jets quarterback Geno Smith intended for tight end Konrad Reuland at the Steelers one yard-line with 8:01 left in the third...
