3 keys to a Jets victory over the Steelers in Zach Wilson’s return

1. PROTECT ZACH

Considering the state of its offensive line, Gang Green might have a challenge slowing doing the Steelers pass rush.

Pittsburgh loves to send multiple blitzes to try and confuse opposing quarterbacks. With Zach Wilson not seeing any live game action for six weeks, the Jets can be sure that the Steelers will have multiple blitz packages ready Sunday. LB Alex Highsmith leads the league in sacks through three weeks (4.5).

The Jets will also have to worry about five-time Pro Bowler Cameron Heyward, who has sometimes proven to be a menace to offensive linemen.

2. HAVE BALANCE ON OFFENSE

The Jets have said the last couple of weeks they’re committed to having a balanced offensive attack. But that remains to be seen as the passing numbers far outweigh the rushing totals.

During the first three weeks, QB Joe Flacco, who started for Wilson (knee), averaged 52 pass attempts a game. That is the most in the league during that span.

Even with Wilson back, the Jets must commit more to running the football. They have two solid backfield options in Breece Hall and Michael Carter, who have shown they can gain yards and keep the Jets out of third and long situations.

3. PRESSURE TRUBISKY

The Jets pass rush has been hit or miss this season, largely miss. Gang Green did have two sacks in the loss against the Bengals last weekend. However, the Jets left some opportunities on the table to sack QB Joe Burrow and force the Bengals to punt.

The Steelers have their own offensive issues, as Mitch Trubisky has been inconsistent during his first three games. He has thrown for 569 yards, two TDs, one INT and is completing 60.2% of his passes.

This is the game where the Jets and, in particular, defensive tackle Quinnen Williams and defensive end Carl Lawson need to harass Trubisky consistently.
