Pittsburgh Steelers: 3 Things to Expect for Week 3 (Based on Wk 2 Results)
Jason Bridge-US PRESSWIRE
Roethlisberger torched the Jets defense in a redemptive effort in Week 2.

The Pittsburgh Steelers needed a boost after a second straight loss to the conference rival Denver Broncos.  They got one, silencing their critics with a 27-10 smackdown of the upstart New York Jets

Now Pittsburgh will look to replicate their success against New York in their Week 3 matchup against the Oakland Raiders.

Pittsburgh's D was its typical dominant self against the Jets, playing like an elite unit even without All-Pros LB James Harrison and S Troy Polamalu.

QB Ben Roethlisberger sliced up the vaunted Jets defense en-route to a three touchdown, 27-point performance by the Steel Curtain's offense.

In short, the Steelers looked dominant against the Jets, a team that blew out the new-look Buffalo Bills just one week prior.

Next week's matchup against the Raiders is one they should win. Oakland is clearly a team on the downswing (they lost seven starters from last season), and Pittsburgh's D should be able to overwhelm the middling Raiders offense.

Let's take a look at what Pittsburgh fans can expect from their team following their Week 2 blowout of the Jets.
