- Upon Further Review: Jets Week 6
A review of four hot issues from the New York Jets’ 19-6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers:
A tale of two throws: This might be an oversimplification, but you could say the game came down to two wide-open passes. Ben Roethlisberger made his, Geno Smith didn’t. In the second quarter, Smith wasted a great opportunity, overthrowing Stephen Hill (51 air yards) on what should’ve been a 77-yard touchdown. Hill, showing his vertical speed, blew past CB Ike Taylor and S Troy Polamalu, the only time the Steelers’ aging secondary looked embarrassingly slow.

- Drive of the Game: Cro gets torched
A look back at the key drive in the New York Jets’ 19-6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers:
The Drive: Three plays, 64 yards. A 55-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Emmanuel Sanders with 12:30 remaining in the third quarter.
The Situation: After five field goals in the first half, it was shaping up as an old-school, defensive struggle between two top-10 defenses. Ahead 9-6, the Steelers got the ball after the Jets went three-and-out on their first possession of the third quarter.

- Green Day: Patriots a ‘must-win game’
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Tom Brady inflicted a lot of pain Sunday night on the Ryan family.
Brady’s miraculous, last-second victory over the New Orleans Saints came at the expense of defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who looked like he was going to throw up on the Saints’ sideline. Somewhere in New Jersey, his twin brother, Rex, probably was watching and felt the same way.
There goes the first-place showdown between the New England Patriots (5-1) and New York Jets (3-3).
- Sage Steelers school Jets’ rookie QB
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Geno Smith called it an intentional throwaway. Rex Ryan said it was a forced pass into heavy coverage. See, this is what happens when a rookie quarterback faces the Pittsburgh Steelers: It’s so befuddling that you can’t figure out what went wrong, even two hours after the fact.
Makes for a tough autopsy.
No matter how it’s defined, Smith’s third-quarter interception was the killer mistake in the New York Jets’ 19-6 loss Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
- Wilkerson laments the Ben that got away
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Jets tried to make the day all about their defensive line.
Marty Lyons, a former member of the New York Sack Exchange, was inducted into the Ring of Honor at halftime. An honorary captain, he participated in the coin toss, flanked by former “New York Sack Exchange” teammates Mark Gastineau and Joe Klecko. Every member of the current defensive line joined the group, a link to then and now. It was as if the Jets were trying to send a message to the Pittsburgh Steelers, who had been struggling with pass protection.
- Injury roundup: Two RBs banged up
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Jets had several players go down with injuries against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, including two of their top three running backs.
Starter Bilal Powell and Mike Goodson exited the game — Powell with a shoulder injury, Goodson with a knee injury. Coach Rex Ryan did not have updates on any of his injured players after the game.
Powell did speak to reporters, and insisted he is not injured. “I just took a little hit, came out and took a breather,” Powell said.
- Cromartie returns, but gets burned
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Antonio Cromartie was supposed to give the New York Jets a boost on Sunday. Instead, he was a bust.
Three days after suffering a knee injury in practice, Cromartie was back on the field, starting at cornerback against the Pittsburgh Steelers. But he gave up the biggest play of the day — a 55-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Emmanuel Sanders in the Steelers’ 19-6 victory.
Pittsburgh was in front, 9-6, and on its first offensive possession of the second half.

- Locker Room Buzz: New York Jets
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Observed in the locker room after the New York Jets’ 19-6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers at MetLife Stadium:
No consistency: Rex Ryan and several players lamented the team’s lack of consistency on a week-to-week basis. In fact, the Jets (3-3) have managed only one two-game winning streak over the last 25 games — and that occurred last season. “It sucks, man,” linebacker Calvin Pace said. “We talk about how we want to be a playoff team, but to be a playoff team, you have to win more than one game [in a row].
- Jets Fall To Steelers, 19-6
The Jets’ streak of being pathetic against the Pittsburgh Steelers continued today, as the Jets lost 19-6 and fell to 3-3 on the season. It’s hard to get on the defense for giving up 19 points against a competent Steelers’ offense and Ben Roethlisberger, but it’s becoming clearer that Antonio Cromartie is not playing up […]

New York Jets Report Card Week 6: Pittsburgh Steelers @ New York Jets Quarterback: D Smith: 19/34, 201 yards, 0 TD, 2 INT, 3 rushes for 8 yards. Geno struggled today against a stout Pittsburgh secondary and he looked every bit the rookie. He led a nice drive that ended with a field goal with […]
- Rapid Reaction: New York Jets
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — A few thoughts on the New York Jets’ 19-6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers at MetLife Stadium:
What it means: The Jets (3-3) can’t handle prosperity. They’ve had just one two-game winning streak since late in the 2011 season. They needed to beat the struggling Steelers (1-4) because their schedule is about to increase in degree of difficulty, as they face the New England Patriots, Cincinnati Bengals and New Orleans Saints in consecutive weeks.
