Steelers Beat Jets For First Win, 19-6

The Steelers (1-4) were off to their worst  start since 1968, when they lost their first six games during a season in which they finished 2-11-1. Sunday’s victory was also the 600th in franchise history, including the postseason, as Pittsburgh became only the fourth team to reach the milestone.

Pittsburgh was coming off a bye-week break and appeared quite a bit sharper than New York (3-3), which had a short week to prepare after a 30-28 win at Atlanta last Monday night.

Geno Smith was intercepted twice by a Steelers defense that entered the game as the only team in the league without a takeaway.
