Jets Vs. Steelers Score Update: Pittsburgh Leads, 13-10, At The Half

The first half of the Week 2 game between the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers has been a back-and-forth affair. Despite the head injury to Shonn Greene, the Jets were leading until just more than a minute was left before intermission. That's when Ben Roethlisberger hit Heath Miller in the corner, beating David Harris, to give the Steelers a 13-10 lead. After a nice return from Joe McKnight, the Jets decided to let the clock run out. The Jets will receive to start the second half.

Mark Sanchez opened the Jets' first drive with a 45-yard completion to Jeremy Kerley and later threw a touchdown to former Steeler Santonio Holmes. Greene and Bilal Powell, who subbed in after Greene left the game, had seven carries each for a combined 48 yards. Sanchez was 4-of-10 for 80 yards and that single touchdown. Kerley, with that long reception, leads the team in receiving.

Former Jet Jerricho Cotchery had a big reception to set up Miller's touchdown on third down, before Yeremiah Bell, a free agent acquisition from Miami this offseason, popped him at the one-yard line. Bell leads the Jets in tackles with four at the half.
