Defensively for the Jets entering Week 4, linebacker C.J. Mosley leads the team in total tackles with 30 and he has two tackles for loss in three games played. The Jets defense has registered just five sacks for the season and defensive lineman Quinnen Williams leads the team in that category with 1.5.

Jets safety Ashtyn Davis and cornerback D.J. Reed have the team’s only interceptions entering week 4 with the latter also having a forced fumble that was recovered by the defense. The Jets defense has just three takeaways on the season entering Week 4.

All-time, the Steelers and Jets have met each other 26 times (including two postseason game), with Pittsburgh winning 20 games and New York winning 6 games. The last meeting between the Steelers and the Jets was in 2019 and the Jets won 16-10 at MetLife Stadium. The Steelers last hosted the Jets in 2016 and Pittsburgh won that game at Heinz Field by a score of 31-16.

For his career, Steelers quarterback Mitch Trubisky is 1-0 against the Jets with the only game as a starter against them coming as a member of the Chicago Bears in 2018.
