The Pittsburgh Steelers were rolling heading into Week 10 of the NFL season, but that momentum came crashing to a halt in an ugly SU and ATS loss against one of the league’s bottom feeders – the New York Jets.
Ben Roethlisberger and company were pegged as 4-point favorites against the Jets for Week 10, but lost 20-13 to fall to 6-4 SU and 5-5 ATS on the season. That was just the Jets’ second win both SU and ATS so far in 2014, as they head into Week 11 with marks of 2-8 SU and 2-7-1 ATS.
