Wow. What a game.
The first half was amazing. Â Who thought the Steelers would dominate in that way, or that Rashard would be able to run the ball all day. Â The defense and offense were both clicking on all cylinders. Â Up 24-0 right before the half, the Steelers held the Jets the entire game and controlled time of possession. Â The Jets were only able to score 3 points in the last few minutes of the first half.
Leading 24-3, the Steelers came out somewhat complacent in the second half. Â The Jets were able to score 16 unanswered points in the second half. Â My blood pressure rose with every first down the Jets were able to get in the second half.
But at the end of the day. Â We won. Â We were able to hold the Jets with time ticking and no time outs.
I tip my hat to the Jets because they are a good team. Â Despite their trash talking, they didn’t do it this week, but I have respect for Rex. Â I think he’s a good coach. Â I think the Jets will be a force in the AFC for the future and I look forward to seeing them in the future.
But I also want to recognize Mike Tomlin. Â As Tomlin always says, we don’t win on style points. Â We played a tough first half and made Sanchez work to catch up to us. Â It was a great game.
Next up, Green Bay.
Get ready Steeler Nation. Â Let’s get #7.
