I had the opportunity to sit and watch the entire Jets-Packers game today and if the Jets are supposed to be the Steelers' top competition in the AFC, I'm not seeing it.
Offensively, if you shut down New York's running game and force Mark Sanchez to beat you, it's awfully difficult for the Jets to win.
Sanchez remains the king of the horizontal passing game. Everything he throws is sideways. And when he does push the ball down the field, he's not very accurate.
That's why Baltimore and the Steelers are the two best teams in the AFC.
Even though I'm not a big Joe Flacco fan, at least he has some weapons to get the ball down the field.
© Trai Essex is active and it appears he will start at right guard tonight.
Cornerback Tracy Porter is inactive for the Saints, as is fellow corner Jabari Greer. That's both starting CBs for the Saints.
