As game time gets closer, it is time to look at the keys to the game. The Pittsburgh Steelers stand at an 0-4 record, but will look to turn that luck around in East Ruthorford against the Jets. Here are your keys to the game:
Offense: Attack the beat up secondary. Rookie cornerback, Dee Milliner, is out with a hamstring, and Antonio Cromartie is questionable after hurting himself in practice this past week (Knee & Hip). Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger should let it rip if he gets the time.
Defense: Get into Geno Smith’s head. Defensive coordinator, Dick LeBeau, is 15-2 against rookie quarterbacks. Get after Smith and force him to make bad mistakes.
Special Teams: The Jets have good speed on special teams, so the Steelers must match that speed. The Steelers will activate defensive back Antwon Blake this week to help with special teams.
