Story
PITTSBURGH -- The Steelers are back so it seemed.

The Steelers started the game off how they did against the New Orleans Saints, rushing the football. Extremeley well.

Going up against the Best Corners in the NFL the Steelers knew they had to pass the football around. Heath Miller had 11 receptions for 104 yards and the Steelers were spreading the ball around like penut butter on toast. Until Heath Miller got injured.

And that is when it went -- down hill.

The Defense began to make big mistakes, costly ones which resulted on long offensive drives from the Jets and touchdowns.

Ben Roethlisberger may of been sacked but with the Jets Nickel Cornerbacks doing a good job on containing Mike Wallace and Limas Sweed it all seemed that the motivation switched to the Jets during the fourth Quarter as Ben Roethlisberger had nobody to throw to.

"It was annoying, when you got guys like Revis and Asomaghua doing a good job, it just frustrates us" Said Ben Roethlisberger after the game in the locker room.

"I'm dissapointed in our Performence" carried on the two time Super Bowl winning Quarterback "We can't blame Jeff for his mistake, us putting only 13 points on the board is a problem"

A problem it is if they want to fix it by next Sunday's night enounter against the Baltimore Ravens who are allowing just 300.0 yards per game this season and restricted the High Powered Offense of the Indianapolis Colts to just 13 points and 181 yards total offense.

Notes:Heath Miller broke his ribs on a risky pass play and may be sidelined for up to 3 weeks. He will be back in Week 6 after the bye. ... The New York Jets under Rex Ryan has started out 2-0 for two consecutive years and allowing just 16 points a game in those four games.
