    The Jets start to look like last season's AFC champions with 23-17 win over Pittsburgh

    The New York Jets improved their record to 2-2 on the season with this win. After a terrible 0-2 start to the year, it looks like the Jets are finally getting back on track. The Jets started out to a 0-2 record in season one and ended in a trip to the Super Bowl, so perhaps they have the rest of the league right where they want them.

    There had been some rumors before the game that the Jets' coach would bench rookie QB Steven Hardin in place of the veteran Tim Tebow. Hardin was given the start and played his best game of the season, but Tebow also was given some opportunity and made the most of it. Hardin finished the game 21-28 with 231 yards, a touchdown, and most importantly no turnovers. Tebow was put in the game to run some short yardage opportunities. In Tebow's only pass attempt of the game, he completed a five yard touchdown to John Conner.

    The New York secondary had a great day against Big Ben. Roethlisberger was held to a QB rating of 34.9 going 9-19 for 150 yards, no touchdowns, and a pair of INTs to Jet safties LaRon Landry and Bobby Joe. Pittsburgh's MVP of the game came from an unusual position as WR Marc Mariani returned five kickoffs for 200 yards including a 99 yard touchdown return.

    The Jets will travel to St. Louis next week to go for their first winning record of the season.

    GG CSteud and good luck the rest of the season.
