PITTSBURGH: The Steelers remained pass-heavy under offensive coordinator Todd Haley last year, running out of a lot of spread looks. They essentially use the pass to set up the run, with the backs running almost exclusively between the tackles. They'll rotate backs again this year, with rookie Le'Veon Bell likely to emerge as a lead back. Jonathan Dwyer is less versatile than Bell and could be on his way out of Pittsburgh. Isaac Redman and LaRod Stephens-Howling figure to split passing-down duties in the early going, though Stephens-Howling could end up taking the role full-time at some point. Haley brought more spread looks to Pittsburgh's offense. They go no-huddle frequently, with Ben Roethlisberger trusted to run the offense. Antonio Brown is now their undisputed No. 1 receiver, with the ability to be used deep or as a catch-and-run guy. Emmanuel Sanders is more of a possession receiver and will likely share No. 2 targets with TE Heath Miller. Jerricho Cotchery should see solid playing time as their slot guy, and while rookie Markus Wheaton will be eased in, he should end up seeing significant snaps as their best deep threat. Only the Saints skewed more pass-heavy in goal-to-go situations than Pittsburgh (64.6% of snaps). Despite a host of injuries in 2012, the Steelers still led the NFL in yardage defense (276 YPG) and passing defense (185 YPG), while finishing sixth in scoring defense (19.6 PPG). Rookie OLB Jarvis Jones makes the team younger and faster, as does CB Cortez Allen, 24, replacing the departed Keenan Lewis. Pittsburgh still has plenty of productive veterans though, like 32-year-old S Troy Polamalu and DE Brett Keisel, 34. Per usual, the team's linebackers are relentless, with OLB LaMarr Woodley and ILB Lawrence Timmons.
NY JETS: After a disastrous year in Tony Sparano's 'ground and pound' offense, the Jets have turned to new offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, more of a finesse guy and closer to former OC Brian Schottenheimer. They'll use more zone blocking, and power runner Chris Ivory will probably take the bulk of the carries. Mike Goodson, who has flashed in a part-time role, fits nicely into this scheme. So does back-up Bilal Powell, though he could end up on the outside looking in. Joe McKnight will likely continue to be a utility player. Mornhinweg is a West Coast guy. His biggest challenge will be finding some kind of rhythm for his quarterback, whether it is Geno Smith or Mark Sanchez. If nothing else, they both have the feet to run this offense. But the Jets lack any sort of true catch-and-run threat. Santonio Holmes is the best in a weak group of receivers. Stephen Hill is strictly a field-stretcher at this point, as is TE Jeff Cumberland. Jeremy Kerley will likely be leaned on more heavily, and Mike Goodson should be involved in the screen game. Mornhinweg has always skewed pass-heavy near the goal line, using a lot of play-action and rollouts. Ivory should take all red zone and goal line reps. But the Jets might be quick to abandon the run down here. The Jets have given up an increased amount of points and yards in each of the past three seasons, and their No. 2-rated pass defense lost CB Darrelle Revis, S Yeremiah Bell and S LaRon Landry. Star CB Antonio Cromartie remains for new defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman, and rookie CB Dee Milliner and SS Dawan Landry will help too. In terms of the front seven, head coach Rex Ryan will help oversee a defense that should be much more aggressive with its blitz packages with monstrous second-year OLB Quinton Coples.

(UPDATES with Winslow suspended 4 games)

*Steelers-Jets Preview* =======================


Coming off what could be a defining effort in his young career, the New York Jets' Geno Smith hopes to take the next step in his development by putting up consecutive strong performances.

Facing a defense that hasn't had a takeaway, Smith might be up to the task against the winless Pittsburgh Steelers, but he won't have his top pass-catcher available after the suspension of tight end Kellen Winslow.

The Jets look to continue their surprising start and remain undefeated at home Sunday when they try to extend Pittsburgh's worst start in 45 years.

Smith helped New York (3-2) notch its best start since 2010 on Monday night, completing 16 of 20 passes for 199 yards and a career-best three touchdowns in a dramatic 30-28 victory in Atlanta. After the Falcons went ahead with 1:54 to play, Smith connected on four straight passes and added an 8-yard run to set up Nick Folk's game-winning field goal on the final play.

The rookie was tied for the NFL lead with 11 turnovers, including eight interceptions, but didn't have one Monday and completed a season-best 80.0 percent of his passes despite being sacked four times.

"It was a tremendous game for him without question," coach Rex Ryan said.

Winslow's only reception was a 1-yard TD catch, and he leads the Jets with 17 receptions. He was suspended for four games Friday for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances.

Smith and the Jets have followed each of their previous two wins with a loss. He's completed 64.4 percent of his attempts with six touchdowns and three interceptions in three victories, compared to 55.1 percent with one score and five picks in two losses. However, both defeats came on the road, and New York has gone 2-0 at home.

With former starter Mark Sanchez out of the picture following season-ending shoulder surgery, Smith appears to be the future of a franchise that has posted back-to-back wins only once in its last 24 games.

"I got a memo from the league, and they said we can win two games in a row," Ryan joked. "I think that's going to be what I talk to our team about."

The Steelers (0-4) are just looking for one win following their bye week, off to their worst start since opening 0-6 in 1968. They'll have a different look defensively, with defensive end Cameron Heyward starting while rookie Vince Williams lines up alongside Lawrence Timmons at inside linebacker.

Despite being 10th in total defense with 321.8 yards allowed per game, Pittsburgh is the only team in the league yet to create a turnover. The Steelers' minus-11 turnover differential is second-worst only to the New York Giants and their four sacks are the NFL's fewest.

"I like the attitude, demeanor and approach to work that the guys have taken," coach Mike Tomlin said. "That's just part of the equation. Obviously, putting it together and producing victory is the most significant part of the equation."

After missing the first three games with a foot injury, rookie Le'Veon Bell hopes to keep giving Pittsburgh's sluggish running game a lift. He finished with 57 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries in his debut, a 34-27 loss to Minnesota in London on Sept. 29, and his workload figures to increase against the Jets.

Bell is likely to have at least one and perhaps two new faces in front of him.

With struggling Mike Adams heading to the bench, Kelvin Beachum and newly acquired Levi Brown are expected to see action at left tackle. Guard Ramon Foster remains bothered by a strained pectoral muscle and his status is uncertain. If Foster can't go, Brown will likely start at left tackle, with the versatile Beachum replacing Foster.

They'll try to provide better protection for Ben Roethlisberger, who was sacked five times by the Vikings and has been dropped 15 times on the season. That's tied for fourth-most in the NFL despite Pittsburgh having played one fewer game than most teams.

Roethlisberger has thrown for 789 yards and three touchdowns in the last two games but has six turnovers in that span.

He connected on 24 of 31 attempts for 275 yards and two scores without an interception in a 27-10 victory over the Jets on Sept. 16, 2012, in the teams' last matchup.

He'll face a New York defense ranked second in the league, allowing 299.0 yards per game. The Jets, though, suffered a big loss Monday when outside linebacker Antwan Barnes went down with a season-ending knee injury.

New York could also be without cornerback Antonio Cromartie due to a knee injury.

This is New York's first home meeting with the Steelers since a 19-16 victory in 2007.
