Their Previous Meeting: The last time these two teams met, Darrelle Revis had suffered a concussion the previous week, putting a great burden on the defense, while the Tony Sparano-led offense showed its first signs of horribleness. The Jets held the Steelers to a 45 yard Shaun Suisham field goal in the first quarter; Sanchez responded on the next drive with a touchdown, finding Santonio Holmes for the 14 yard score. Both teams traded field goals in the second quarter before the Steelers’ offense put six on the board as Ben Roethlisberger found Heath Miller on a 1 yard pass. In the second half, the Jets’ offense looked anemic as they struggled to get much of anything going. Meanwhile, the Steelers were able to capitalize with a Mike Wallace 37 yard touchdown in the third and a 2 yard Issac Redman run in the last four minutes of the fourth to put the exclamation point on the Steelers’ 27-10 win. One eye-popping statistic was time of possession: The Jets possessed the ball for 23:24. The Steelers? 36:36.
