The big story out of the Pittsburgh Steelers this season isn’t their defense, but their third-ranked overall offense. A big part of that is QB Ben Roethlisberger, who’s been on one of the most impressive QB streaks of all time. Meanwhile, the New York Jets’ quarterback situation is as in total flux, with Michael Vick getting his second start. As you watch Pittsburgh Steelers vs NY Jets online free live stream, keep an eye on these QB storylines. They’re bound to impact the outcome.
Roethlisberger has thrown 12 TD passes in two games, including a six-TD effort in the Steelers 51-34 win over the Colts in Week 8, followed by a six-TD outing in the Steelers’ 43-23 win over the Ravens last week. For context, he’d passed for 10 total touchdowns total during the previous seven weeks.

Big Ben has also done it through diversity, having thrown at least one TD pass to six different receivers in the past two games.
Meanwhile, the New York Jets will start Michael Vick for the second time after replacing Geno Smith Sunday in the Jets’ 10-24 loss to the Chiefs. Vick was effective, completing 21 of 27 passes for 196 yards and a touchdown, but couldn’t bring the 1-8 Jets their second win of the season.
