This game could be all about who is not playing as much as it's about who is on the field.

For the Jets, All-Pro corner Darrelle Revis, tight end Dustin Keller and outside linebacker Bryan Thomas are out.

For the Steelers, it appears highly unlikely that Troy Polamalu and James Harrison will play. Both missed practice again Friday and are listed as questionable. But considering they haven't practiced all week, they are likely out as well.

While not having Polamalu and Harrison will obviously affect the Steelers, it says here that the Jets not having Revis and Keller is a much bigger deal.

The Jets defense is built to shut down opposing passing games with their three solid cover corners. And Revis is the best in the business.

Because the Jets don't generate much of a pass rush, they count on those corners covering. That won't happen now.

And Keller is New York quarterback Mark Sanchez's security blanket. Not having him on the field will be a major blow for New York's offense.

The Steelers will miss Polamalu and Harrison for sure, but with the Jets defense at much less than full strength, Pittsburgh should have a big advantage, especially playing at home.

Take the Steelers, 27-17

If a Steeler fan starts out with "Who I Like" and doesn't say the Steelers, that would sound kinda douchey.

Jets get 13 pts tops unless their Defense makes plays. Which can happen when Offenses aren't in sync in Sept.

You can't predict a shutout...haven't you heard that LeBeau is a senile old fool who should have been put out to pasture years ago? ;)

I haven't had a good feeling about this year's team since the pre-season. The injury problems continue to persist. Playing without Harrison and Polamalu is never good. Their replacements aren't "above the line" as Mike Tomlin likes to say. Woodley, Worilds and Carter made very few plays against the Broncos.

DeCastro, Mendenhall and the offensive line in general aren't immune either. Ben was running for his life yet again and sacked 2 times in meaningful time and pressured many others. He's good, but Ben will not be able to overcome these injuries on the defense and offense.

The Jets not having Revis and having the worst rush D in the league does not bode well for them.

I will say that the Steelers need to give Dwyer more touches than Red. Dewey looked much more determined on his carries last week. Ben also needs to open up the short game a little more and the RZ O needs 6 points instead of 3 every time down. Use Heath to max advantage inside the Jets 20.

Steelers must not go 0-2 with a trip to Oakland looming. Ben needs to be flawless vs. a less-than-potent Jets D and DLB's D must be stout vs. Sanchez and create opportunities to place the ball in Ben's hands.

Final score: Steelers 38, Jets 23
