Will Steelers find success through air?

When the defeated Pittsburgh Steelers hit the road this weekend to face the 3-2 New York Jets, their struggling offense is going to have their hands full. The Steelers rushing "attack" ranks dead last in the NFL at 58.0 yards per game and goes up against a Jets D that is allowing the second fewest yards on the ground (76.2 YPG). Surely they hope to get some help from rookie Le'Veon Bell, who churned out 57 yards and 2 TDs on 16 carries in his NFL debut and got to rest up during last week's bye. However, it seems that if the Steelers are going to win, they will have to find success through the air. Is that doable?
