The Steelers came into Sunday needing to win both of their remaining games in order to clinch a playoff spot, but they no longer control their own chances of making it to the postseason .

Pittsburgh did score any points in the second half while playing with a pair of quarterbacks and the Jets were able to hit a pair of field goals that game them a – win at home.
