Game Analysis & Picks
The 1-2 Jets visit Pittsburgh after losing to the Bengals on Sunday. The Steelers dropped to 1-2 on the season after losing to Cleveland in last week’s TNF game but should take advantage of the extra time to rest and prepare.
The Steelers defense has not played to their potential in the first 3 weeks, but they will benefit from QB Zach Wilson starting his first game of the season for the Jets. In his rookie season, when defenses brought five or more pass rushers, Wilson recorded a 54.9 passer rating while averaging 4.6 yards per attempt according to NFL Stats. We should expect Mike Tomlin and the Steelers defense to turn up the heat early and often, especially facing a third string LT in Conor McDermott filling in for the injured George Fait.
On the other side of the ball, the Jets defense presents an opportunity for the Steelers to finally move the ball offensively. A healthy mix of Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren rushes and short to mid-range targets for WR Diontae Johnson, WR Chase Claypool, and TE Pat Freiermuth should get the job done against New York.
Pittsburgh should be favored by 4.5 or 5 points so let’s take advantage of the books’ miscalculation. Roll with the Steelers covering the spread today (-3) along with the Under (41.5) in this game as we will likely see inconsistent offenses playing the time of possession and field position game.
-Dionate Johnson (PIT) Over 5.5 receptions (-125)
-Greg Zuerlein (NYJ) Over 1.5 field goals (+100)
