Hard knocks. Soft knocks. Call it what you want but the Jets are here to play. After all the doubt placed on New York throughout the season, after a few unconvincing games such at Detroit and Cleveland, the Jets have shown that can compete with the best teams in the league. Here are two quick points that are key to a Jets victory:
1) The running game must there all game. Although the Steelers have statistically the best defense in the league, New York's defense is a close behind them. LT and Greene must have solid performances each in order to keep Big Ben off the field.
2) Along with the running game being there, this will help Mark Sanchez tremendously because he will be in 3rd and 5 scenarios which sets up a quick slant pass to Santonio Holmes. Sanchez has been doubted all postseason but his ability to keep Peyton Manning and Tom Brady off the field for two straight weeks has led to huge wins. Can he do it again? I believe that Mark will silence the media, whether it's a win or not(fingers crossed), and play a great game with the help of the mastermind himself, Rex Ryan.
Jets. Steelers. Heinz Field, Gametime. Now.
