Quick Take: Jets out to show Week 1 was no fluke and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:

Why this game is intriguing: It's not because of Tim Tebow. I promise. Although ... We saw so little of the Wildcat, one wonders what Gang Green didn't show. But no, this one is about the suddenly viable Jets trying to show that their high-scoring offensive performance and thieving ways on defense against Buffalo weren't just happenstance. And the Steelers are licking their paws after watching Manning drive up and down the field on Sunday night.

What to watch: Besides Tebow (OK, I'll stop), all eyes will be on Mark Sanchez, who did his best in Week 1 to quiet any concerns about the Jets' quarterback position. If he can stay sound and productive against a Pittsburgh D that should be much more of a challenge than the Bills' side, folks just might stop talking about the viability of a two-quarterback system and start asking why the Jets need the Wildcat at all. As for the Steelers, offensive-line issues made it tough to run the ball against Denver and led to Ben Roethlisberger being sacked five times. Think Rex and his promising unit might go after him a little?
