Jets to field another ? CB duo against red-hot Steelers


In Ben Roethlisberger, the New York Jets are facing a quarterback Sunday who has thrown for six touchdowns in each of the last two games.

Meanwhile, the Jets have given up a league-most 24 touchdowns and have just one interception to their name.

So it's only fitting that the team will go with a starting cornerback tandem of Phillip Adams and Marcus Williams against the high-powered and red-hot Pittsburgh Steelers' passing offense.

Jets cornerback Darrin Walls, a former reserve player who represents really the only sliver of "starter" in the team's CB corps, will miss his second straight game Sunday. That leaves Adams, who will get the start over safety-turned-corner-slash-who-knows Antonio Allen.

A guy named Josh Thomas replaced Allen, who was benched, last week, and Adams didn't play at all that game.

So anyway, once upon a time, the Jets had Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie starting at cornerback.
