The Pittsburgh Steelers finally got their first win of the season by beating the NY Jets 19-6 on Sunday.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are finally in the win column in 2013. 

They broke a four-game losing streak to start off the season, their worst in 45 years, with a 19-6 road win over the New York Jets. Pittsburgh, which fell behind early, 3-0, relied on a Lawrence Timmons interception off Jets quarterback Geno Smith at the three-yard line with a little over three minutes remaining to seal the deal

Pittsburgh scored the only touchdown of the game, a 55-yard reception by Emmanuel Sanders off a pass from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger at their own 45-yard line. 

Sanders got good position on Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, caught the ball at New York's 22-yard line, and galloped all the way to the end zone for a 16-6 Pittsburgh lead. 

Shaun Suisham scored the Steelers' remaning points with his four field goals. His teammate, defensive end Brett Keisel, said there's no quit in their team.

"We're not going to quit. Obviously, it wasn't the start we wanted, but the men in this locker room believe there's a chance that something great could come out of this if we all work toward it." 

On the other hand, Ben Shpigel of the New York Times described how things went for the inconsistent Jets in the second half. 

"The Jets trailed, 9-6, at halftime. Their seven second-half possessions looked like this: punt, interception, punt, punt, punt, interception, downs. In every section of MetLife stadium, Terrible Towels waved. As the Steelers ran out the clock, chants of 'Here we go, Steelers' rang out." 

Smith just couldn't get it going, as he threw two picks in the red zone -- the other one to Steelers safety Ryan Clark. For the game, he was 19-of-34 passing for 201 yards with no touchdowns. He was also sacked three times.

His counterpart, Roethlisberger, also got sacked thrice but had a better completion rate. He went 23-of-30 passing for 264 yards, a touchdown and no picks. 

With the victory, the Steelers, who also notched their 600th all-time win (only the fourth team to do so), upped their record to 1-4 while the Jets fell to 3-3.

Final 2014 Baltimore Ravens Win-Loss Prediction

Sep 1 2014 2:41pm CDT | Source: Rant Sports

The Baltimore Ravens didn’t deserve to make the playoffs last season. The once high-flying Ravens finished the season 8-8 and right fully so. Baltimore wasn’t even good enough to be mediocre, and that’s being nice. It had the NFL‘s third-worst red zone offense and simply didn’t measure up to the big boys in the ...
