PITTSBURGH -- The problems the Pittsburgh Steelers face, to borrow one of coach Mike Tomlins favourite words, are obvious. The solutions? Not so much. Given an extra week to stew over the worst start in 45 years, Tomlin is tweaking the lineup hoping to find a spark that will help his team begin the long road back to respectability. Defensive end Cameron Heyward will start on Sunday against the New York Jets. Embattled left tackle Mike Adams will sit. Kelvin Beachum and newly acquired Levi Brown will both get a look at Adams vacated spot. Rookie Vince Williams will line up alongside Lawrence Timmons at inside linebacker. The moves are not an elixir, to be sure, but a step toward a fresh start for a team in desperate need a reboot following an 0-4 September. "I like the attitude, demeanour and approach to work that the guys have taken," Tomlin said. "Thats just part of the equation. Obviously, putting it together and producing victory is the most significant part of the equation." One the Steelers have failed to solve. They remain the only team in the league yet to create a takeaway. Their minus-11 turnover differential is second only to the even more hapless New York Giants (0-5), and their four sacks are dead last. Heyward could provide a boost. The former first-round draft pick spent the first month of the season as the third man in a four-man rotation at end behind Brett Keisel and Ziggy Hood. While Keisel has looked downright spry at times at age 35, Hood continues to be a disappointment. Tomlin plans to keep Hood and Al Woods in the mix but believes Heyward has earned the right to get more snaps. "I think hes been really solid, not taking anything away from Ziggy," Tomlin said. "Obviously, both guys will continue to play. We just want Cam to play more than hes been playing and in order to ensure that, were going to put him in the starting lineup." Tomlin doesnt need Heyward to create havoc so much as simply do his job for a defence that is surprisingly benign. The Steelers are 11th in the league in yards allowed, giving up 321 a game. Not bad by most standards, but hardly acceptable at a place that has been ranked No. 1 in fewest yards surrendered four times in the last decade. While the pass rush has been toothless, the run defence has been even worse. Pittsburgh is 25th against the run, allowing an average of 122 yards. The Steel Curtain has become little more than a warm blanket. Tomlin admitted hed like the defence to be more "sound" against the run. What he would really like, however, is for his players to be more physical. Though the number of padded practices is limited under the collective bargaining agreement, Tomlin thinks his players dont have to be suited up to improve their mindset. "We have to minimize the big plays," he said. "I think that has been an issue for us ... We just need to get more solid in that area, minimize big plays and make people work to produce points against us. Thats how weve done it for a long period of time. We have to quickly get back to that." Rookie running back LeVeon Bell was a revelation in his debut against the Vikings, running for a pair of touchdowns. His workload figures to increase against the Jets, and hell likely have at least one and perhaps two new faces in front of him. Tomlin called Brown -- brought in from Arizona in a trade last week -- a "critical addition" and isnt ruling out the prospect of the fifth overall pick in the 2007 draft starting. Guard Ramon Foster remains bothered by a strained pectoral muscle and his status wont be determined until later in the week. If Foster doesnt heal in time, Brown will likely start at left tackle, with the versatile Beachum replacing Foster. Its not exactly the line the Steelers projected in August. Then again, that might not be a bad thing considering how the unit underachieved in September after centre Maurkice Pouncey went down with a season-ending right knee injury. Already three games behind AFC North rivals Baltimore, Cleveland and Cincinnati in the standings, Pittsburgh needs to start moving. How it begins is irrelevant. When Tomlin talks about the route Adams can go to get back on the field, the coach might as well be talking about his team too. "Its time for Mike to roll his sleeves up and go about working to find more consistency," Tomlin said, "so that he can be the player that we know and he knows he is capable of being." Philadelphia Eagles Jersey. -- Darrun Hilliard scored 21 points and Josh Hart added 13, lifting the undefeated No. LeSean McCoy Eagles Jersey. -- Dustin Tokarski made 32 saves as the Norfolk Admirals extended their record winning streak to 21 games with a 2-0 victory over the St. Los Angeles won for the 14th time in 16 games and moved 10 games ahead of second-place Oakland in the American League West with 16 games to play. Aybar homered against Nick Martinez (3-11) in the second inning to put the Angels ahead 2-1. Reggie White Eagles - The Vancouver Canucks hope an upcoming stretch of home games will be enough to get the club into the postseason. Chuck Bednarik Eagles - Cincinnati Reds pitcher Mat Latos had an arthroscopic procedure performed on his right elbow last week, the teams official site reported Wednesday.SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Patrick Maroon and Luca Caputi both scored in the shootout as the Syracuse Crunch slipped past the St. Johns IceCaps 5-4 on Friday in American Hockey League action. Caputi also scored in regulation for Syracuse (31-27-Cool, while Jean-Francois Jacques, Troy Bodie and Riley Holzapfel also had goals. Jason King and Jason DeSantis both had a goal and an assist for St. Johns (38-19-1Cool, while Patrice Cormier and John Albert added singles. "We were looking for two and we got one out of it," said King. "We really had to dig deep. As everybody knows, our lineup is pretty scarce of regulars and we really have to battle for every inch on ice. "We got down quick and really had to fight our way back into it. We showed a lot of character in doing that. We can take a lot of positives from that." Iiro Tarkki started in the Crunch net and made three stops on six shots in eight minutes 14 seconds of work. He was pulled after Kings power-play goal and replaced by Igor Bobkkov, who made 22 saves on 23 shots and turned aside four shooters in the shootout to earn the win.dddddddddddd David Aebischer gave up four goals on 19 shots in the first period for the IceCaps. Eddie Pasquale stopped 22 shots in relief. St. Johns went 2 for 3 on the power play, while Syracuse went 2 for 7. Seven of the games eight regulation-time goals were scored in the first period, with the Crunch outshooting the IceCaps 19-10 in the first 20 minutes of play. Syracuse outshot St. Johns 42-29 in the game. "Were at that point in the season where we are facing a bit of adversity," King said. "Guys are battling hard. Guys are getting the job done. We had a couple of fights, we had a lot of blocked shots and a lot of penalty kills. "We get down and were never out. It seems like we always stay with it and clawed our way back into it somehow. Even with the depleted lineup, we still found a way to get ourselves back into the game. Its a tough point to lose."
