I never thought I’d get the chance to say associate the 2013 Jets with a “trap game,” but here we are in Week Six with the 0-4 Steelers a clearly inferior opponent.  With the Patriots’ match-up on the horizon, the Jets could be caught in a trap game this week. The injury report isn’t too crowded for either team.  The Jets will be without Antwan Barnes (IR), Santonio Holmes...
