The Jets are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 meetings in Pittsburgh. The home team is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.
The New York Jets are a miracle comeback away from being winless on the season, their offense doesn’t finish drives, and their defense is slightly below average across the board. The Pittsburgh Steelers have issues of their own, mainly at quarterback, but they do get after it defensively, and they’ve had extra time to rest and prepare for this game. The Steelers have also been one of the better home teams dating back to last season. While the numbers may not be pretty for either side through 3 games, it’s fair to say the Steelers are the better team here by a decent margin. I’ll lay the chalk.
