“I don't plan on calling a whole bunch of seven-step drops and see how long we can hold onto it. We better have good timing. We better get open fast. We got to protect long enough to be able to get the ball off.” -- Adam Gase on his play-calling against the NFL’s top pass-rush
There could be extra emotion on both sides with Bell facing his old team for the first time, and his former teammates wanting to shut him down after he sat out last season. The crowd could be a factor too. The Jets got fired up when the Raiders’ fans took over MetLife Stadium in Week 12. Steelers’ fans travel and are loud. Maybe it could inspire the Jets again in their home finale.
No Jet has rushed for 100 yards this season. The Steelers haven’t allowed a player to rush for 100 yards against them. Bell hopes to change both.
