After falling behind 24-0 in the second quarter, the New York Jets have fought their back into the AFC Championship game and trail the Pittsburgh Steelers by only 14, 24-10. They’ve scored 10 unanswered points, the most recent a 45-yard touchdown from Mark Sanchez to Santonio Holmes, the former Steeler.
This game is very similar to the NFC title game from earlier today. In that game, the Packers jumped out to a lead but then struggled to add any additional points and let the Bears back in the game. The Steelers are in danger of doing that very thing unless they can get back to what was working the first half.
The Steelers were outscored in the third quarter 7-0 and haven’t scored on offense since midway through the second quarter when Ben Roethlisberger took a quarterback sneak into the endzone.
