While in attendance at Metlife last Sunday for some gorgeous football weather, I was amongst many other Steelers faithfuls hoping for a little taste of victory. There were 5 charter buses that had journeyed from Pittsburgh ( about 6.5 hour drive) to attend this game and there was at least 15% of the stadium filled with terrible towels and their favorite jersey.

Birthday boy Ryan Clark had an impressive red zone interception which was his first of the season and a total of 5 tackles and 3 assists. Jarvis Jones who many have been keeping their eyes on did not disappoint with two tackles. This Rookie is going to do great things for the Pittsburgh Steelers this season.

In the 3rd quarter Big Ben throws a 55 yard down pass to Sanders for the only touchdown of the game.

Geno Smith’s pass to Hill was instantly read by Polumalu as he raced across the field to lay him out with a clean monstrous hit.

The Jets couldn’t put up any points the entire second half which lead them to a total of 6 points from 2 field goals. Many Jets fans vacated the stadium at the 2 minute warning after the final nail was put in the coffin and Smiths second and last pick of the game was thrown. The final score was 19-6 and as the clock expired you could here the “Here we Go Steelers” chats, the “1-4,1-4,1-4” chants it was so fun.

Going into week 7 the Pittsburgh Steelers definitely have health and the positive momentum on their side. Coming from week 6 with a win achieved will definitely give them the confidence they need to take on this divisional arch nemesis. The majority of Steelers are healthy with the exception of Curtis Brown (DB), Jarvis Jones (LB), Brett Keisel (DE), Steve McLendon (DT) and Heath Miller (TE) who are all probable.

Game Score: Steelers: 24 Ravens: 21
