Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders, meet Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Kyle Wilson.
Three of the best receivers in the league will get to face one of the best secondaries that the NFL has to offer.
Pittsburgh’s receivers caught 12-of-22 passes last week for 166 of the team’s 245 passing yards and a touchdown.
Despite a relatively productive week, it did not feel that the Steelers receivers were much of a threat. They will have to do better against top competition this week.
The Steelers will have trouble moving the ball on the ground until the offensive line improves as unit meaning that Ben Roethlisberger will have to win this game with his arm.
He will need his receivers to win the one-on-one battles and they have the talent to do so, particularly Brown and Wallace.
Expect the Steelers to test the Jets secondary with Wallace deep on Sunday. They did not try much deep down the field last week, but playing at home Roethlisberger should be more likely to take risks.
A couple of deep completions could really open things up for the offense and allow the Steelers to have a productive day in the points department.
