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."

DaRon Payne Jersey . -- Antoine Bibeau bought the Val-dOr Foreurs valuable time at the Memorial Cup with his 51-save shutout Friday.MINNEAPOLIS - Mike Aviles didnt know his numbers against Ricky Nolasco going into Wednesday nights game. But hes glad his manager did. Aviles homered among his three hits and drove in two runs, and rookie T.J. House threw shutout ball into the sixth inning, combining with four relievers to pitch the Cleveland Indians past the Minnesota Twins 5-0 Wednesday night. Indians manager Terry Francona started Aviles at third base and rested regular starter Lonnie Chisenhall, in part because Aviles had a good track record against Nolasco (5-9). Aviles went 2 for 3 off the Twins starter and drove in the Indians third run with a broken-bat single. Hes now 7 for 11 with 4 RBIs in his career against Nolasco. "I didnt even know that. I know Ive hit some balls decently against (Nolasco) but I didnt know the numbers," said Aviles, who homered into the second deck in left field off reliever Sam Deduno in the ninth inning as well. "I dont even know what it is. I guess sometimes you just see some pitchers a little better than others." Nolasco gave up four runs in 6 2-3 innings. He has now given up 17 home runs in 20 starts. No Twins pitcher has allowed more homers or lost more games this season than Nolasco, who signed a four-year, $48 million contract last December to anchor Minnesotas rotation. "They definitely did attack, but thats something thats happened throughout my career because they know Im going to fill up the strike zone for the most part," Nolasco said. "Sometimes they jump on me a little bit but if you make adjustments and make quality pitches youll get guys out." House (2-3) gave up four hits while striking out five and walked three. The Indians extended Minnesotas scoreless streak to 17 innings. TITO TAKES THE PLUNGE Francona conducted his postgame press briefing in a soggy uniform after he and his coaches taped an ice bucket challenge in the dugout after the game.ddddddddddddFrancona was challenged by Boston manager John Farrell, but he had another Red Sox great on his mind as he was drenched. "The whole time I was doing it, I dont want to get all emotional, but I was thinking of Curt Schilling," Francona said of his former ace pitcher now battling cancer. "I know how near and dear the fight to find a cure for this is to him." DOUBLE THREAT Twins 2B Brian Dozier became the sixth player in team history with a 20/20 season when he stole second base in the first inning. Torii Hunter was the last Twin to accomplish the feat in 2004. Dozier, who also has 20 homers, posted career highs with 18 home runs and 14 stolen bases last year. TRAINERS ROOM Indians: 1B/OF Nick Swisher underwent season-ending arthroscopic surgery on both knees on Wednesday. He had been suffering from chronic pain related to cartilage damage. Swishers recovery is expected to take eight to 10 weeks. Twins: RHP Kohl Stewart, the fourth pick in the 2013 MLB draft, was pulled from his start at Class A Cedar Rapids in the second inning on Tuesday night when his fastball was registering 5-to-7 mph slower than usual. Twins general manager Terry Ryan said he didnt think Stewarts situation was serious, and that he hoped Stewart would make another start before the end of the minor league season. UP NEXT Indians: Corey Kluber (13-6) hasnt lost since June 30 and can tie for the AL lead in victories if he wins his seventh straight decision on Thursday. Kluber has struck out 10 batters five times in his last eight starts. Twins: Phil Hughes (13-8) also can tie for the AL lead in victories with a win Thursday. Hughes has won three straight starts, allowing just one earned run in each outing.
