Jets defeat Steelers 22-17.
The New York Jets (10-4) have defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers (10-4) twenty-two to seventeen this afternoon. The Jets won the game on a late fourth quarter safety by Jason Taylor that forced the AFC North division leading Steelers to drive for an unsuccessful touchdown in the final seconds, instead of a field goal.
Brad Smith (kickoff return) and Mark Sanchez (rushing) accounted for the Jets two touchdowns, while Nick Folk succeeded in both of his field goal attempts. I think this solid victory could be the spark that the Jets have lacked this season.
The Jets are traveling once again next week to take on the Chicago Bears.
NY Jets (10-4) - 22.
Steelers (10-4) - 17.
