Well after the week one victory home versus division rival Buffalo the New York Jets were hoping to have back nose tackle Sione Pouha and safety Eric Smith to bring the defense back to full strength. While they will be playing today versus Pittsburgh, Darrelle Revis, Bryan Thomas and tight end Dustin Keller are all out. Kyle Wilson, Garrett McIntyre and Jeff Cumberland, respectively, should be getting the start instead.

The Steelers will have Ryan Clark back at safety after sitting out in Denver due to the altitude affecting his sickle cell disease. Regardless of all the starters out for both teams, there will be no excuses to not have the guys behind them, now starting, play well. Now it is up to the New York Jets to prove they can go on the road and beat a perennial playoff powerhouse.
