Roethlisberger Shines As Steelers Rip Jets 27-10

Ben Roethlisberger passed for 275 yards and two touchdowns and the Pittsburgh Steelers smothered the  Jets in the second half of a 27-10 victory on Sunday.

Roethlisberger completed 24 of 31 passes. He hit Heath Miller for a 1-yard score to give the Steelers (1-1) the lead late in the first half, then found Mike Wallace for a 37-yard strike early in the third quarter to break the game open.

Isaac Redman added a late 2-yard touchdown run for Pittsburgh, which had little trouble avoiding its first 0-2 start in a decade.

The Jets (1-1) did little offensively after a pair of early scoring drives. Mark Sanchez passed for 138 yards and a touchdown, but the Jets hardly looked like the offensive juggernaut that piled up points in a 48-28 opening-week blowout win over Buffalo.
