Five of the past six games between the Jets and Steelers were decided by six points or fewer — and two went into overtime. “It’s always a knockdown, drag-out, barroom fight with these guys,” Jets defensive lineman Mike DeVito said. “And that’s the kind of game we love to play.”

The previous six meetings:


1/23/11 AFC Championship Game: STEELERS 24, Jets 19
