While the Steelers might have less overall talent than the Jets, one thing needs to be understood.
They were desperate.
They had not started 0-2 in 10 years. Even LaMarr Woodley spoke about guaranteeing not being 0-2.
When a veteren team becomes desperate and add the fact that it was their home opener (of which they had a 9 game winning streak) the tables were against the Jets from the start.
There was no way the Jets were going to win that game.
