Steelers vs. Jets second half open thread

New, comments

It couldn't get a whole lot worse for the Steelers, but there's a lot of game left.

What goes up must come down, it seems.

The Steelers are getting shellacked by the host New York Jets 17-3 at halftime, and that might be putting it mildly. The Steelers have lost two fumbles, both by wide receiver Antonio Brown (one on a short pass and one on a muffed punt), and a tipped pass was intercepted near the goal line, negating the Steelers' only scoring threat of the half.

Everything has been going the Jets' way, from tipped turnovers, to fumbles from quarterback Michael Vick that oddly wasn't called. Vick hit T.J. Graham on a 67-yard touchdown, as part of a 17-point first quarter.

The Steelers got an all-but-impossible 53-yard field goal from Shaun Suisham to end the half, but as Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said in his halftime interview, if you're minus-three in the turnover department, being down by 14 points is all you can hope for.

The Steelers will get the ball to start the second half.
