EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - It has been a mission for Herman Edwards since he arrived in New York with his fumble-recovery fame and marching orders to pull off another miracle: Lift a franchise out of its mostly laughable history and change the meaning of the word "Jets." With a chance to take the next step in a stunning season yesterday, the Jets did not simply knock on the playoff door this time. They blew it open and charged through, like a band of marauders determined to kick the out-of-town kids off their playground.

"It's a mild strain or a mild separation," said Hill. "They're both about the same thing. I'm still sore, especially in the morning. But I'm going to try and play Saturday.

Jets (11-6) at Steelers (15-1) Line: Steelers by 9 Last time: Steelers 17, Jets 6 in Week 14. Ben Roethlisberger threw two interceptions and Chad Pennington three in a defensive scrum. Jerome Bettis threw the only TD pass on a halfback option, and ran for another. X-factor: Steelers WR Plaxico Burress missed the last game with a hamstring strain. His return opens up Pittsburgh's offense, and even if he doesn't make big plays, it should free up WR Hines Ward. Intriguing matchup: Pennington vs. elements.
