After a solid season-opener, many experts believe the New York Jets will lose to the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road in Week 2 on Sunday.

The New York Jets hit the road for a late Sunday showdown in Pittsburgh with the Steelers in Week 2 on Sunday, and though New York's Week 1 debut was impressive, many experts are predicting a Pittsburgh win.

Joel Thorman, SB Nation's NFL Editor, sees a 20-10 win for the Steelers:

How long can I go with my prediction that the Jets will crash and burn this year? They looked mighty impressive against the Bills last week with a whopping 48 points on offense, the same offense that didn't score a touchdown until the final preseason game. All that said, I'm rolling with Pittsburgh at home in this game. The Steelers are the more complete team at this point.

Mike Silver, Jason Cole and Les Carpenter of Yahoo! Sports went with the Steelers across the board, along with Sports Illustrated's Peter King, who forecasted a 20-17 Pittsburgh victory.

All but two of ESPN's panel of football experts also selected the Steelers to win.
