The Steelers' receiving corps will be tested by a New York Jets secondary that features top cover corners Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie but lost safety Jim Leonhard to injury.

How the Steelers fare throwing the ball against the Jets could help determine the outcome of Sunday's AFC Championship Game.

A comparison of the average regular- and postseason statistics of Steelers receivers Mike Wallace, Hines Ward, Emmanuel Sanders, Antwaan Randle El and Antonio Brown and Jets cornerbacks Revis, Cromartie and Kyle Wilson and safeties Eric Smith and Dwight Lowery:

Steelers WRs

Receptions: 11.6

Yards: 175.4

Touchdowns: 1

Jets DBs

Tackles: 11.4

Passes defended: 3.1

Interceptions: 0.3


Jets passing yards allowed per game: 204.9

Steelers receivers yards per game: 175.4
