Instant analysis: Jets do just enough to upset Steelers


Ward will face his former team for the first time Sunday, as will running back Le'Veon Bell.

The Jets (5-9) are already eliminated from the National Football League playoff race but there is still plenty on the line for Ward - who won two Super Bowls and was an MVP during his 14 years with the Steelers.

When Pittsburgh didn't meet the star running back's contract demands, he held out the entire season before becoming a free agent and signing with NY this past offseason. "The way things are going is obviously not ideal with the way our record is (5-9). I want the Gatorade shower and all that if we win".

Hodges completed seven of his nine passes for 53 yards, but those two missed throws fell into the arms of Jets defenders, giving him six interceptions in the past two games. "I'm over it now".

"It's Christmas weekend in New York City, so everybody wants to come in".

Sunday's game against Pittsburgh will be Bell's first shot at revenge against the team that he took dramatic actions toward in 2018. It is what it is. "It's going to be fun".

"Bell continued: "(The MetLife Stadium) will be full of Steeler fans. I think it would be the same if that no more. "I definitely know that".
