Ben Roethlisberger has said that the New York Jets' defense has been "very good" so far this season in the NFL.
The AFC East side, who face the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend, have won three of their five games so far this campaign.
The Steelers quarterback told the team's official website: "It reminds you a lot of a defense that I've played a lot against, ours and the old Baltimore. Mixing things around, showing all kinds of different looks, blitzing, just anything you can draw up.
"Coach [Rex] Ryan is a very intelligent defensive coach, and sometimes you look at things and you're like, 'Did he just draw that up, literally on the sidelines?' He's that good. They're ranked number two for a reason.
"I watched a really good team go down to a tough place to play against, what I think, is a good [Atlanta] Falcons' team and good Falcons' offense. The Jets' defense is very good."
The Steelers sit at the bottom of the AFC North after losing their first four games of 2013.
