Steelers Look to Continue Miserable Season for Jets Sunday Afternoon in New York
The New York Jets are mired in a miserable season, losing their last eight games after winning the season opener. Pittsburgh is in the middle of a tight AFC North division race at 6-3. When you put all of this together, you get a recipe for a blowout on Sunday. Pittsburgh visits New York at MetLife Stadium today in what should be an easy win for the Steelers. Big Ben has been red-hot of late, which is why we like the Steelers to move back into sole possession of first-place today.
Steelers will not overlook the struggling Jets
In what could be a trap game for Pittsburgh, the Steelers know that they cannot look past the Jets on Sunday. With a 6-3 record, the Steelers come into this weekend tied atop the AFC North with the Cleveland Browns. Yes, those Cleveland Browns. They can move one game in front of the Browns with a victory on the road against New York today. Ben Roethlisberger has thrown 22 touchdown passes to just three interceptions this year.
Jets would love to snap win streak this afternoon
New York has not won a game this season since the opener, losing eight straight coming into this weekend, and major changes are sure to come at some point this year. This might include the dismissal of head coach Rex Ryan and GM John Idzik. By the way, their lone win came against the equally bad Oakland Raiders, who are now 0-8 on the season. Other changes could include a new quarterback as Geno Smith has been a complete bust.
On Sunday afternoon, the Jets will look to set a new franchise record for consecutive losses when the Steelers come to town. We will take a look at the odds from TopBet.eu, where the Steelers are only 4.5-point favorites to win. We are going to drop 20 percent of our bankroll on the Steelers and the OVER 47.5 total points scored as they put up another strong offensive performance and remain in first place.
