Suddenly slumping Jets get Steelers next

The storyline
The Steelers can put more of a grip on that No. 2 seed in the AFC with a win ... which would also tighten the noose the Jets seem to be hanging from.

Why you should watch
Mark Sanchez is playing poorly and Dick LeBeau knows how to exploit a shaken QB. Santonio Holmes, fresh off dropping a TD pass, is going to be targeted by the Heinz Field crowd. Ben Roethlisberger generally got the best of Rex Ryan's defenses when Ryan was in Baltimore.

Did you know?
The Jets are 11-2 when Sanchez has an 80-plus passer rating. ... New York had a season-high five sacks last week. ... The Steelers are 6-0 at home against the Jets all time. ... Roethlisberger leads the NFL in fourth-quarter passer rating (121.1).
