EAST RUTHERFORD** – The Steelers beat the New York Jets, 19-6, at MetLife Stadium for the franchise's 600th win. The Steelers became just the fourth team in NFL history, and first AFC team to accomplish that milestone.
K Nick Folk gave the Jets a 3-0 lead late in the first quarter when he connected on a 25-yard field goal. Pittsburgh though would score on its next three possessions with help from K Shaun Suisham. Suisham nailed a 46-yarder, a 33-yarder and then a 48-yarder with less than a minute remaining in the half to give the Steelers a 9-3 lead. Folk responded with his 39-yarder with two seconds left in the second quarter. The Steelers went into halftime with a 9-6 lead.
On Pittsburgh's first drive of the second half, the team faced a third-and-one on at its 45-yard line. QB Ben Roethlisberger's play action fake froze the Jets' defense, and WR Emmanuel Sanders was wide open in the middle of the field. Sanders hauled in a 55-yard touchdown, his longest career reception, and the Steelers extended their lead to 16-6.
New York drove to the Steelers' 23-yard line on their ensuing possession, but QB Geno Smith's throw was intercepted by S Ryan Clark. It marked Clark's 14th career interception. Suisham connected on his fourth field goal of the game, this one from 32 yards out to give the Steelers the decisive 19-6 win. The Jets drove into Steelers' territory late in the game, but Smith was intercepted near the goal line by LB Lawrence Timmons.
The Steelers' defense recorded season highs in sacks (3) and takeaways (2). The defense also held the Jets to 3-of-11 (27%) on third-down conversions.
