BEST BETS

HA: PIT (-3) at NYJ
I hate that Arthur and I are giving you the same game rather than a choice, but he’s right, the Steelers are the lock of the week. Pittsburgh must win this one to continue to control its playoff hopes. I’m not a huge “Duck” Hodges fan and would rather see Mason Rudolph under center right now, but “Duck” won’t throw four picks against these guys. James Cooner appears healthy again, while the Jets are toast at this point and a bad team to begin, and the Steelers defense might be able to play all 60 minutes and still beat them in this spot.
AA: PIT (-3) at NYJ

Mike Tomlin’s Steelers are smarting after a rare home loss in December to the Bills and have an aggressive defense capable of spooking Sam Darnold, who’s been solid more often than not since his frightening Foxboro indoctrination. A bigger question in this one, of course, should be Duck Hodges, after tossing four picks Sunday night in his first defeat as the starter. But the Bills, the Jets ‘D’ is not, and Pittsburgh’s arrow continues pointing upward behind the guidance of Tomlin, who’s unlikely to allow the Steelers to hit the skids now with their playoff fate still in hand.
