East Rutherford, N.J. appears to be owned at least partially by Steeler Nation.

Pittsburgh is playing a "road" game, taking on the New York Jets Sunday in Week 9. Pittsburgh is riding a three-game winning streak, and they're four-point favorites against the Jets, losers of their last eight games.

The Steelers are yet again down a few starting defenders, and backup safety Shamarko Thomas will be out as well.

How the Steelers handle the tough Jets' defensive line will be a key component in this game. Outside of that, there's plenty of reason to be worried about the special teams, considering the ability of Percy Harvin in the return game.

It should be a good one, so stay tuned here all day and we'll have the second-half open thread posted during halftime.
