Predictions....just the way I like em.
ANALYST PREDICTION WINNER
Cimini STEELERS 24, JETS 19
The Jets have a lot of confidence after last week, but the Steelers have won nine straight home openers, they're getting some starters back this week and they know they can't afford an 0-2 start.
O'Connor STEELERS 20, JETS 16
The Giants have had a long time to stew over their virtual no-show against Dallas, and the last thing they want to do is open defense of their title with two home losses. Expect a big game from Eli Manning and especially Victor Cruz, who wants to make good on his drops in the opener.
Youngmisuk STEELERS 27, JETS 17
Pittsburgh and the Steelers' defense proves to be much tougher than Buffalo.
Darcy STEELERS 23, JETS 13
Gang Green's offense won't look nearly as good against a highly motivated Pittsburgh defense, with the Steelers trying to avoid going 0-2.
McManus STEELERS 24, JETS 20
The Jet looked great last week against the Bills. But can they do against the Steelers? Less likely.
Smith STEELERS 27, JETS 17
The Steelers are an angry team, and they seem ready to take it out on an offense that's not as good as they showed in Week 1.
Ruocco STEELERS 24, JETS 23
The Jets were impressive but Pittsburgh is more desperate for this win.
Daughtry STEELERS 24, JETS 20
LaRon Landry says the Jets have the better defense. We'll see. It will be THAT kind of game. The Jets have never scored more that 21 points vs. the Steelers. That rule stays in play.
Lundberg STEELERS 20, JETS 17
The Steelers at home will bounce back as they will get more pressure on Sanchez than the Bills. Ben Roethlisberger is no Ryan Fitzpatrick.
