The first half of the New York Jets game against the Pittsburgh Steelers is in the books, and the Jets are leading the Steelers 10 - 6.
In the first quarter neither team could get much going on offense. The biggest play of the quarter happened when a tipped pass resulted in a Lamarcus Joyner interception at the Steelers’ 36 yard line. The Jets couldn’t move the ball much and had to settle for a 3 - 0 lead. That was all the scoring in the first quarter.
Early In the 2nd quarter the Jets put together an impressive 70 yard drive. Zach Wilson hit Elijah Moore on a couple of big plays before finishing off the drive with some trickery on a Braxton Berrios to Zach Wilson touchdown pass. That gave the Jets a 10 - 0 lead.
The Steelers answered with a long drive pounding the rock, which bogged down with a Quinnen Wiliams sack of Mitchell Trubisky. A 51 yard field goal made the score Jets 10, Steelers 3.
That’s how the score stayed until a last second Carl Lawson roughing the passer penalty gave the Steelers a last gasp 59 yard field goal attempt with no time left on the clock. The Steelers made the long field goal to make the score 10 -6.
We go into the second half with the Jets leading the Steelers by four points.
Enjoy the second half everyone.
