Week 4: NY Jets @ Pittsburgh Steelers - 1 pm ET

The fourth straight AFC North matchup for Gang Green. There's been a lot of misery involved with the Jets in Pittsburgh.

New York is 1-10 all-time at Pittsburgh. Their lone victory came in December of 2010, a 22-17 win, thanks to a game-opening 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Brad Smith. The Steelers would exact revenge on their home field by beating the Jets 24-19 in the AFC Championship a month later. 

These two longtime AFC franchises are seemingly at a crossroads. The Jets are looking to make their way up from the bottom, and the Steelers are retooling to get back to the mountain top again.

Only one team cam walk out the victors.

Prediction: LOSS (1-3)

Even though both these franchises are vastly different than they have been in years past, it's difficult to envision a scenario where the Jets stroll into Pittsburgh and win outright.

If they do, it might change the entire trajectory of the Jets' season. Mike Tomlin's team is at their best at home. I think the Steelers win. Jets fall to 1-3.
