Final Verdict: The Pittsburgh Steelers had an extra week to prepare for the New York Jets and try to end their four-game losing streak.
That extra week appears to have served them well.
The Pittsburgh defense harassed rookie quarterback Geno Smith all game long, forcing a pair of interceptions in a 19-6 Steelers win.

The New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers have been just full of surprises in 2013.
The Jets, a team many believed would be in the running for the first pick in the 2014 draft, have won three of their first five games and are coming off a huge win over the Atlanta Falcons.
The Steelers, on the other hand, have yet to taste victory this season.
Sixty percent of the experts think that Pittsburgh's early-season woes will continue this week when the Steelers visit the Big Apple, including Bleacher Report AFC West Lead Writer Tyson Langland:
The Jets defense is for real, and Geno Smith is progressing nicely week in and week out. Pittsburgh has too many problems on the offensive side of the ball. This, in turn, has hindered its ability to play consistent football.
NFL National Lead Writer Michael Schottey, on the other hand, believes that Pittsburgh will break into the win column in Week 6:
Wow, I really don't want to pick the Steelers here after the Jets just beat the Atlanta Falcons, but I trust Dick LeBeau to have spent his bye week wisely. Geno Smith won't know what (or even, at times, who) hit him.
