The New York Jets welcomed the Pittsburgh Steelers to MetLife Stadium hoping to keep up with the then 6-3 Steelers. By the end of the first quarter, the Jets held a 17-0 advantage. The Jets defense did the rest of the heavy lifting holding the Steelers to three points in the first half and 10 in the second. The Jets managed another field goal to end the game 13-20.
“There’s nothing mystical about the outcome of that football game,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. “We talked all week about why that team struggled: because they were minus in the turnover ratio. … Well, they weren’t today. They were plus-4. You’re going to lose football games when you’re minus-4 in the turnover ratio, and we did today.”
The Steelers will take the week to regroup and hope to bounce back against the (2-7) Tennessee Titans. Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so get yours now!
