Jets snap losing streak, upset Steelers

The New York Jets finally won a football game.

They won for only the second time this season, upsetting the Pittsburgh Steelers, 20-13.

"All right!" Jets coach Rex Ryan said. Finally!"

The Jets improved to 2-8 as Michael Vick threw two touchdowns and safety Jaiquawn Jarrett intercepted Ben Roethlisberger twice.

"This team deserved to win, man," Ryan said.

With a dozen touchdown passes in his past two games, Roethlisberger got shut down by the Jets. He had one touchdown pass.

"There's nothing mystical about the outcome of that football game," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. "We talked all week about why that team struggled: because they were minus in the turnover ratio. ... Well, they weren't today. They were plus-4. You're going to lose football games when you're minus-4 in the turnover ratio, and we did today."
