It's a big inter-conference game for the Steelers, who are looking to avoid going 0-2 for the first time since the 2002 season. The Jets (1-0) are coming off an impressive 48-28 win over Buffalo, and are playing in their first road game this season.

The key match-ups for PIttsburgh are going to be its wide receivers vs. the depleted Jets' secondary. Without cornerback Darrelle Revis, no secondary is better. The Steelers will need to find a way to exploit his loss.

Probably the biggest 1-on-1 advantage is tight end Heath Miller vs. strong safety LaRon Landry. Miller, if targeted, could have a big game if and when Landry is in coverage.

The Jets dynamic offense uses a lot of motion from its fullbacks and tight ends, and will look to move them around the formation to see what kind of coverage the Steelers are playing. With TE Dustin Keller (hamstring) out this game, look for Jeff Cumberland to fill in, a spot he was put in last week.
