Jets Rise In Power Rankings Following Win In Pittsburgh

As a result of their season saving win against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Gang Green went up in power rankings of all three major sports websites. Both ESPN and Fox Sports upped their position by 4 points (from #9 to #5 and from #10 to #6 respectively). Only Pete Prisco of CBS Sports thought that the win against Pittsburgh wasn't really worth that much, as the Jets went up by only 1 point (from #9 to #8) in CBS Sports' latest poll.

Here's what the top 3 websites had to say about the Jets:

ESPN:  Winning in Pittsburgh was huge and took a lot of pressure off Rex Ryan, the coaching staff and Mark Sanchez.

FOX Sports: For whatever reason, the Jets are still throwing the ball more than running it, even when they are leading in a game. The foundation has to start with the running game, not with second-year QB Mark Sanchez.

CBS Sports: That was a season-saver at Pittsburgh, maybe the thing to get them back on track. All they need to do is win one more and they are playoff bound.
