With that 24 point lead chipped away to 21 and then to 14 (thanks to a touchdown from former Pittsburgh star Santonio Holmes), the Steelers avoided allowing the Jets to move to within seven by stopping the road team at the goal line.
But then quarterback Ben Roethlisberger fumbled the snap, resulting in a safety for the Jets.
The Steelers continue to lead, 24-12.
There’s still plenty time for the Jets. They’ll get the free kick, and then they’ll have a chance to cut the lead to five.
