The Steelers came up with their first two turnovers and their first victory as their long autumn fall came to an end with a 19-6 win over the New York Jets today.

Winless for their longest stretch in 45 years the Steelers (1-4) fell behind the Jets 3-0 after the first quarter but took the lead in the second and their defense held the Jets (3-3) out of the end zone.

The Jets' last gasp came on first down at the Steelers' 12 with just over three minutes to go. Rookie Jarvis Jones smacked into rookie quarterback Geno Smith as he was throwing the ball fluttered into the air and Lawrence Timmons intercepted it at the three.

It was the kind of play that has been absent from their arsenal this season. Ryan Clark also intercepted a Smith pass near the goalline to stave off another possible Jets score.

Ben Roethlisberger thew a 55-yard pass to Emmanuel Sanders in the third quarter for the game's only touchdown.

Shaun Suisham kicked four field goals. His fourth came with 12:09 left in the game to put the Steelers ahead 19-6.

The Steelers led 16-6 after three quarters after they scored the first touchdown of the day a play they could not have executed better.

After stopping the Jets' opening drive of the second half on three downs the Steelers took over at their 36. Le'Veon Bell ran twice for nine yards. On third-and-one Ben Roethlisberger faked a handoff to Bell dropped back and unleashed a deep one to Emmanuel Sanders. He beat cornerback Antonio Cromartie to catch the ball at the 22. Sanders ran untouched the rest of the way for a 55-yard score and a 16-6 Steelers lead.

The third quarter was notable for another reason the first turnover of the season forced by the Steelers defense and it was a big one. The Jets had a first down at the Steelers 23 when Geno Smith threw toward tight end Konrad Reuland in the end zone. The pass was short and Clark picked it off and returned the interception to the 14.
