Jets Stop Big Ben, Steelers in 20-13 Victory

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Michael Vick threw two touchdown passes and the New York Jets forced four turnovers while shutting down Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers in a stunning 20-13 victory Sunday that ended an eight-game losing streak.

Roethlisberger came in having thrown six touchdown passes in each of his last two games. He was playing in front of a crowd at MetLife Stadium that appeared nearly half-filled with Terrible Towel-waving Steelers fans. But the Jets (2-8) wouldn’t allow Roethlisberger to get into much of a rhythm.

Roethlisberger finished 30 of 43 for 343 yards and connected with Martavis Bryant for an 80-yard TD with 1:16 left. The Steelers (6-4) attempted an onside kick, but Eric Decker recovered to seal it.

Jaiquawn Jarrett had two interceptions, a sack and a fumble recovery for the Jets, who hadn’t won since beating Oakland in Week 1.
