During the season, Bent's Game Analysis charts games for some of the Jets' upcoming opponents, enabling a breakdown of what to watch out for on gameday…

2014 began similarly to this year for the Jets, with a murderer's row of top teams in the first half of the season. That was the last time these teams met and the Jets shocked the Steelers with a 20-13 win to break an eight-game losing streak.

Despite being competitive most weeks, the season had spiralled out of control -- much like this one seems destined to. With Geno Smith benched, the Jets took a 17-0 lead as Mike Vick threw two touchdown passes, including a long one to TJ Graham. Unlikely hero Jaiquawn Jarrett forced three turnovers to help the Jets hang on. That was too little too late, but a similar upset would perhaps get this Jets season back on track. 

After the jump, I break down the positional groupings (BGA-style!) for the Steelers to try and highlight what to watch out for.

Quarterbacks

With the Jets being strong up front, but struggling in the secondary, could there be a worse match-up with them trying to prevent a three-game losing streak? Ben Roethlisberger has always been adept at avoiding sacks, extending plays and finding the open man, forcing you to maintain tight coverage.

Roethlisberger was so impressive against the Chiefs, it was almost enough to make most people forget that the Steelers had lost by 31 against the Eagles just one week prior. He threw five touchdown passes against the same team that the Jets had been held to three points by, turning the ball over eight times. By blowing out a team who themselves blew out the Jets and moving to 3-1 on the season, it's perhaps surprising that the Steelers are only a seven-point favorite. One of their other wins was against Cincinnati, who also beat the Jets this year.

Landry Jones is currently listed as the back-up to Roethlisberger. 

Offensive Line

The one glimmer of hope for the Jets entering this game is the fact that the Steelers have some injury issues on their offensive line. However, the Jets have been consistently winning the battle up front every week, and it hasn't made much difference, so is this really going to help them? You can expect the Steelers to scheme their way around any deficiencies.

Three linemen have been ruled out for the Steelers, leaving them with just six healthy bodies. Starting right tackle Marcus Gilbert is out, along with backup swing tackle Ryan Harris. Although Harris was the starting left tackle for the Super Bowl champion Broncos last year, he had graded out as one of the worst tackles in the league, so that already would have been a downgrade. With versatile reserve Cody Wallace also out, that further reduces their options. 

It sounds like the current plan is for Christopher Hubbard to start at right tackle, so that the Steelers can at least keep the rest of their line intact. I would expect Hubbard to get plenty of help as he's a guard by trade, so might feel more comfortable with a tight end (or two) on his right shoulder. If that doesn't work - or if someone else gets hurt - they have some alternatives. Starting center Maurkice Pouncey has taken some reps at right tackle and rookie BJ Finney could be seen as an option off the bench after filling in well as the starting left guard against the Chiefs.

Pouncey is a terrific athlete and Ramon Foster returns at left guard after missing the Chiefs game with chest and elbow injuries. Former first-round pick David DeCastro is the key to the Steelers' running game but does lead them in penalties (four) and sacks given up (three). Rounding out the group is Alejandro Villanueva, a former undrafted free agent who took over at left tackle from Kelvin Beachum last year.

Running Backs

Le'Veon Bell made his return from suspension against the Chiefs, with immediate effect. He rushed for 144 yards and caught five passes. He's one of the best backs in the league and for the Jets to have any chance they will have to slow him down.



DeAngelo Williams, who filled in as the starter while Bell was out, has been lauded for his veteran leadership and for his ability to contribute in a variety of ways, including as a blocker. He provides valuable cover and a change of pace.

The Steelers don't have a healthy full back right now, but you can expect them to employ their tight ends in the backfield and to run from two tight end sets.

Receivers

Even with Martavis Bryant suspended and impressive rookie Eli Rogers injured, the Steelers have plenty of options in the passing game, including one of the league's most dangerous receivers. Antonio Brown is going to need to pick up the pace if he's going to threaten the 2,000-yard barrier as some predicted before the season, but has two 100-yard games in the first four weeks.

The Jets' coaching staff also had plenty of praise for Sammie Coates during the week. Last year's third-round pick has had a 40-plus yard catch in each of the first four games.

With Rogers out, Markus Wheaton and Darrius Heyward-Bey should get more work. Heyward-Bey has always been somewhat inconsistent, but he's still a downfield threat and had a 31-yard touchdown catch last week. Wheaton has had a quiet season so far, but caught over 50 passes last year, so he's no slouch.

At tight end, Jesse James - last year's fifth-round pick - has been starting. He's caught 12 passes already, which is three more than he had in his rookie year. He's not much of a blocker though, so look for David Johnson to come in and handle those assignments.

Defensive Line

The Steelers defensive line is a perfect example of the kind of pipeline they have been able to create over the years in their next-man-up style system. Cameron Heyward was drafted in 2011 and was the inexperienced youngster while veterans Brett Keisel and Casey Hampton reached the twilight of their careers and Ziggy Hood developed into a solid veteran. Now Heyward is the leader and he's joined in the starting lineup by last year's second-round pick Stephon Tuitt and this year's third-rounder Javon Hargrave, who will no doubt be mentoring some high picks themselves in a few years time.

Heyward had a quiet start to the year, but broke out with three sacks last week. Tuitt also had a monster game, creating constant pressure. Hargrave has been playing the nose tackle role, which means he will typically exit for a slot cornerback in passing situations.

Veterans Ricardo Matthews and Daniel McCullers provide depth off the bench.

Linebackers

Steelers legend James Harrison was a revelation last year, as he returned to Pittsburgh for what was expected to be his swan song and ended up playing a major role as a situational pass rusher and occasional starter. He hasn't made quite the same impact so far this year, as he's yet to record his first sack. However, he does have a forced fumble and an interception to his name.



The starters outside in base are former first round pick Jarvis Jones and former Buffalo Bill Arthur Moats. Jones has been a bit of a disappointment, but is developing into a decent run defender.

On the inside, Lawrence Timmons is still the Steelers' leader, although he's in his 30s now and hasn't been the same player he once was over the last few seasons. His counterpart on the inside - Ryan Shazier - has been ruled out, but Vince Williams is a more than adequate replacement with 14 career starts and 21 tackles to his name already this year.

Youngsters Anthony Chickillo and Tyler Matakevich provide interesting options off the bench.

Defensive Backs

The Steelers are also down a couple of bodies in the secondary, with starting safety Robert Golden and backup cornerback Justin Gilbert - a former first-round pick - both ruled out. This has forced two rookies - first round cornerback Artie Burns and second-round safety Sean Davis - into big roles sooner than expected. They've each had some costly missed tackles over the first month.

The starting corners - experienced veteran William Gay and third-year pro Ross Cockrell - have done a good job so far, with veteran safety Mike Mitchell also reliable. Jordan Dangerfield was the other starting safety last week after Davis had handled the role earlier in the year. Dangerfield is in his fourth season, but that was his first ever appearance on defense.

Look for Dangerfield to start again, but with Davis seeing significant reps in the slot as he returns to the line-up.

Special Teams

The Steelers' kicking game has two youngsters entering their second season in the role. Kicker Chris Boswell missed a short field goal earlier in the year, but punter Jordan Berry has done a good job so far.

They have plenty of options in the return game, with Coates and Brown listed as the kick-off and punt returner respectively. Back-up running back Fitzgerald Toussaint has also seen some work on kick-offs.

Finally, in coverage, backup safety Shamarko Thomas is a standout and is on course to lead them in special teams tackles for the second straight year.

Down the stretch of the New York Jets' 22-21 win over the Miami Dolphins, quarterback Sam Darnold did not flinch.

With an assist from kicker Sam Ficken, who nailed consecutive fourth-quarter tries from 42 and 44 yards -- the latter as time expired -- Darnold engineered back-to-back scoring drives, including the game-winning march, as the Jets (5-8) held off the Dolphins (3-10) Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

"I think it's huge, especially when you practice that situation so much in the offseason," Darnold said of the Jets' 49-yard drive in seven plays and 1:33 to down the Dolphins. "To be able to execute that in a real game, it's huge for our confidence. At the same time, we practice it all the time, so we just went out there and did our job. (Wide receiver) Vyncint (Smith) made a great play out there and obviously Sam did a great job kicking the ball."

Jets WR Robby Anderson said earlier in the week that he considers himself a top-five NFL wide receiver. And when such a statement is made, that person needs to back it up.

Anderson did just that Sunday in the Jets' 22-21 win over the Dolphins, where he hauled in seven catches for 116 yards and a touchdown. 

"We hot right now," Anderson told SNY's Jeane Coakley after the game. "I feel like I'm in the zone, I feel like he's in the zone. We've just got to keep it going.

Odell Beckham Jr. might just have talked his way out of another city and another franchise, and that opens up some tantalizing possibilities. He still is -- when his body is healthy and his mind is right -- one of the best receivers in football. 

The Jets, of course, really do need a No. 1 receiver.

But what they don't need is a Beckham-sized headache.

The third year kicker from Penn State was 3-for-3 on field goals for the day, while going 1-for-2 on extra points.

After the game, Ficken was all smiles as he received praise from head coach Adam Gase and quarterback Sam Darnold.

Christopher Johnson has already promised that Adam Gase won't be fired and he'll be the Jets coach at the start of next season. There are no indications at all that the Jets CEO is willing to change his mind, no matter what happens down the stretch of the season.

But Gase sure has to be stretching his boss' patience.

Gase needed an absolute gift from the Dolphins and the officials to avoid what would have been another embarrassing loss on Sunday. The Jets won when a pass interference non-call was overturned on replay, giving them another shot to get into game-winning field goal range. Then, Sam Ficken nailed a 44-yarder as time expired to give the Jets a 22-21 win.

According to SNY's NFL Insider Ralph Vacchiano, the Jets may look into trading running back Le'Veon Bell and safety Jamal Adams this offseason.

Bell is in his first season with the team, after signing a four-year, $52.5 million deal with $35 million guaranteed on March 13

"Obviously you know he's out today with his illness. It's the latest blow in what's shaping up as the worst season of his career," Vacchiano said. "But the question now is, will it be his only season with the Jets? Multiple sources around the NFL told me this week that they really do expect that the Jets will make Bell available this offseason."

After suffering a devastating loss to the Bengals last week, the Jets don't really have a potential playoff berth to play for anymore, but not losing to the Miami Dolphins for a second time this season should be enough to motivate this squad heading into Sunday.

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano previews the matchup as the Dolphins visit MetLife Stadium. Last time these two teams faced each other, Miami shocked many by defeating the Jets 26-18 to pick up their first win of the season in Week 9.

That loss is certainly one that the Jets would like to have back, and although Sunday's game can't make up for it on their record, it's still a necessary win to get.

Le'Veon Bell's status for Sunday against the Miami Dolphins has officially been downgraded to out by the team.

Bell, who was initially listed as questionable on Friday, missed two days of practice with an illness, and now will not suit up against Miami.

On Friday, Gase would not specify the kind of illness Bell is dealing with, and would only say that everyone recovers at a different pace.

The Jets secondary could look very thin this weekend when they face the Miami Dolphins, with multiple players in doubt to suit up and CB Brian Poole officially listed as out.

In addition to Poole, things aren't looking to great for S Jamal Adams and CB Arthur Maulet, who are both listed as doubtful to play. Poole (concussion), Adams (ankle) and Maulet (calf) missed all three days of practice this week.

The trio all suffered their injuries at various points of Sunday's 22-6 loss to the Bengals, a game that handed Cincinnati their first win of the season.

Jets head coach Adam Gase said running back Le'Veon Bell will not practice on Thursday due to an illness, but it doesn't seem to be something going around the team.

"Yeah they haven't said that to me yet," Gase said. "I feel like each guy it's been something different. It hasn't been the same thing, it hasn't been like the flu or anything."

In addition to Bell missing practice, safety Jamal Adams remains out as he continues to recover from a sprained left ankle.

When the Jets released Wednesday's injury report for Week 14, they had their top defensive player atop the list.

Safety Jamal Adams did not practice after he sprained his left ankle in Sunday's 22-6 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

With Adams as the latest casualty, the injury bug has bitten the Jets throughout the 2019 season, particularly on defense.

At 4-8, the Jets are all but certain to miss out on the playoffs.

It's been a strange season for Gang Green, starting with a Week 1 loss to Buffalo that easily could have been a win, followed by Sam Darnold missing three games with mono. And just as it looked like the season was on the verge of a complete collapse at 1-7, the Jets won three straight to get to 4-7.

Then, unexpectedly, the Jets were defeated by the previously winless Bengals.

Now, the Jets will look to finish out the final quarter of their regular season schedule, and, at the very least, build momentum heading into 2020.

Jets S Jamal Adams hasn't yet been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, but it seems to be trending that way.

Head coach Adam Gase said on Wednesday that he hasn't been told Adams has a high ankle sprain, but Adams remains in a walking boot.

"He's gotta really feel good for me to put him back out there," Gase said when asked about a potential timetable.

After all the speculation, we finally have an answer: The Jets will place C.J. Mosley on season ending IR, Adam Gase announced Tuesday afternoon on The Michael Kay Show.

Mosley, who had played in just two games this season after suffering a groin injury back in Week 1, kept himself off IR and away from season ending surgery when the Jets started to win games again.

As the Jets won three straight and were still technically in contention to make the playoffs, Mosley was kept off IR in hope that the Jets continue winning and can throw in their best defensive weapon for a last push for the postseason.

The Jets' chances at the playoffs were slim, but now they're dead following their 22-6 loss to the winless Bengals on Sunday. 

After winning three-straight games heading into Week 13, the loss came as a bit of a shock. With the tides turning, could the Jets have overlooked the Bengals, leading to their demise? 

Quarterback Sam Darnold says no.

The Bengals took their first win of the season against the Jets in a 22-6 game in Week 14, an outing which didn't feature much Le'Veon Bell.

Bell had only ten times for 32 yards as a runner in the loss, which also saw four catches for the running back.

The plays being called for the Jets come via head coach Adam Gase. On Monday, Gase explained why he only mustered up 10 carries for Bell in the game. It was a matter of circumstances, the coach said.

Jets S Jamal Adams had tears in his eyes when he was talking after Sunday's loss to the Bengals, and it was mainly due to the boot on his foot. 

Well, head coach Adam Gase revealed Monday the reason for that boot was an ankle sprain for the Pro Bowl safety. 

Gase added that Adams will undergo an MRI and "that kind of stuff" to further assess the injury. He will be considered "legit week-to-week," and Gase doesn't believe that he'll be practicing this week.

As Adam Gase emphasized during the week, the Jets were entering this week's game as a 4-7 team and they sure played like one against the Bengals on Sunday. Now they're a 4-8 team, having lost to a winless team for the second time since the bye week.

To their credit, the Bengals played with good energy and discipline on defense, and rode a solid Andy Dalton performance in his return to the lineup to break a 13-game losing streak that stretched back to last December.

Offensively, the Jets had some near misses, but struggled to sustain drives, mainly due to dropped passes and ill-timed penalties. The Bengals exploited some coverage breakdowns to score two first half touchdowns and built a 17-3 lead before the Jets drove for a late field goal.

The Jets are considering re-signing linebacker Jordan Jenkins, who is in the final season of his rookie contract, according to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.

"A league source said the Jets have expressed some interest in re-signing him, which was something that seemed unlikely when the season began," Vacchiano said. "Now, the Jets are going to try to find a dominant edge rusher this offseason in free agency or the draft. But the idea of Jenkins on the other side has some merits. He's been their best and most consistent pass rusher this year with five sacks, 12 over the past two seasons. He shouldn't cost a ton either, and might even be open to shorter term deal."

Jenkins was drafted with the No. 83 pick in the third round back in 2016 out of Georgia. He has five sacks this season, and a total of 17.5 sacks in four seasons with the team.

Jamal Adams has been playing out of his mind lately. It seems like every big defensive play for the Jets involve their defensive captain, and if that continues on Sunday against the Bengals, he could be setting a new NFL record. 

Over the past three games -- all of which have been Jets wins -- Adams has collected 5.5 sacks. And when you include his one against the Dolphins in Week 9, Adams already has 6.5 sacks on the season with five games left to play. 

The NFL record for sacks in a single season by a defensive back was set by S Adrian Wilson back in 2005 with the Cardinals at eight. It's a record Adams promised he would break.

The Bengals come into their game against the Jets on Sunday still in search of their first win of the season. Just three games after benching Andy Dalton in favor of rookie Ryan Finley, Cincinnati is turning back to their veteran quarterback. 

Despite his struggles this season, Jets head coach Adam Gase isn't looking past the TCU product, who has played 128 games for the Bengals since the team drafted him in 2011.

"He's a dangerous guy, period." Gase said. "That's just what it is. It's not always easy when you're a quarterback who's been in the same organization for a long time under the same head coach and all of a sudden everything changes. It's not always as smooth as you want it to be."
