Steelers vs. Jets score: Live updates, game stats, highlights as Kenny Pickett replaces Mitch Trubisky at QB

PITTSBURGH — In a defensive first half, the Jets went into halftime with a 10-6 lead over the Steelers. New York led 10-0 before Chris Boswell hit a pair of field goals that included the longest field goal in Acrisure Stadium history. The Steelers started the second half with Kenny Pickett in at quarterback in relief of Mitch Trubisky, who struggled to move the ball during the first half. 

The visiting Jets took a 10-0 lead when quarterback Zach Wilson was the recipient of a touchdown pass from Braxton Berrios. Wilson, who made his season debut Sunday after missing the season’s first three games with a knee injury, completed passes of 20 and 28 yards to Elijah Mitchell prior to his touchdown catch. 

Lamarcus Joyner’s first-quarter interception of Trubisky set up the game’s first points on Greg Zuerlein’s 38-yard field goal. Pittsburgh got on the board midway through the third when Boswell drilled a 51-yard attempt. Boswell then hit his record-setting, 59-yard boot just before halftime. The kick was set up by cornerback Cam Sutton’s pick of Wilson deep in Steelers territory.
