Pittsburgh Steelers Vs New York Jets GameDay, TV/Radio, And Preview

For teams that manage to contain Pittsburgh in the first quarter, the task is far from complete as Mike Tomlin’s crew is the first NFL team since at least the 1970 merger to score 20-plus points in the second quarter in three straight contests.

Ben Roethlisberger in his last two games against the Jets has completed 47 of 61 passes for 539 yards, no interceptions, and three touchdowns.

Running back Le’Veon Bell leads the AFC and is second in the NFL with 1,444 scrimmage yards, 711 rushing and 422 receiving.

Injuries for the Steelers: Out – Troy Polamalu, Ryan Shazier, Ike Taylor Shamarko Thomas, and Ross Ventrone. Listed as probable are Cameron Heyward, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Brett Keisel, Heath Miller, Michael Mitchell, Maurkice Pouncey, and Jason Worilds.

Quaterback Michael Vick is making his second start of the season for the Jets. In his first start last week, he completed 21 of 28 passes for 196 yards, no interceptions, and one touchdown against the Chiefs.

Chris Ivory leads the New York ground game as he averages 4.6 yards per attempt. The 6-foot, 222-pound running back has 497 yards on 109 carries and five touchdowns.

The Jets’ defense in the red zone could be to the Steelers liking as New York is the only NFL team to have permitted the opposition to score on all red zone trips this season, surrendering 22 touchdowns and 10 field goals.

Injuries for the Jets: Out – Cornerback Darrin Walls. Listed as probable are offensive lineman Oday Aboushi, linebacker Antwan Barnes, guard Willie Colon, tackle Breno Giacomini, linebacker David Harris, wide receiver Percy Harvin, running back Chris Johnson, wide receiver Jeremy Kerley, center Nick Mangold, linebacker Trevor Reilly, defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, wide receiver Greg Salas, quarterback Geno Smith, quarterback Michael Vick, and defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson.

Up Next: The Black and Gold remain on the road when they travel to LP Field in Nashville on Monday, Nov. 17 to take on the Tennessee Titans. Kickoff is set for 8:30 p.m. ET. and the game will be broadcast on ESPN.
