“We can’t turn the ball over and we did it too much…We’re going to sit here and chew on this loss, and get to come back to work tomorrow. It will be a new week and new challenges.” — Ben.
Ben finished 30 of 43 for 343 yards and connected with Martavis Bryant for an 80-yard touchdown with 1:16 left in the game, but the Steelers only first-half points came on a 53-yard field goal by Shaun Suisham that cut the deficit to 17-3 as time expired in the second quarter. They attempted an onside kick after that last-minute touchdown, but the Jets’ Eric Decker recovered to seal it for New York.
