The Pittsburgh Steelers' home opener is an intriguing contest against the New York Jets, another franchise whose Week 1 reality seemed contradictory to preseason expectations. 

Whereas the Big Apple celebrated an unexpected offensive outburst and dominant win over Buffalo, an excited and optimistic fan base in the Steel City now hopes for the perfect tonic to recover from last week's "Mile High" letdown: victory.

The game against Gang Green features a number of intriguing matchups and plot points, not the least of which are a slew of notable injuries and the second coming of Tim Tebow against the team he ousted from postseason play in January.

While Mark Sanchez's solid performance last weekend silenced calls for a quarterback controversy, the Men of Steel will hope to reinvigorate the hoopla that helped to define the Jets' offseason with a return to form before a boisterous home crowd.

As Steeler Nation crosses its fingers for a Sunday to celebrate, let's look ahead to 10 things for fans to watch closely when the Jets and Steelers square off.
