PITTSBURGH -- Ben Roethlisberger passed for 275 yards and two touchdowns, and the Pittsburgh Steelers smothered the New York Jets in the second half of a 27-10 victory Sunday.

Roethlisberger completed 24 of 31 passes. He hit Heath Miller for a 1-yard score to give the Steelers (1-1) the lead late in the first half, then found Mike Wallace for a 37-yard strike early in the third quarter to break open the game.

Isaac Redman added a late 2-yard touchdown run for the Steelers, who had little trouble avoiding their first 0-2 start in a decade.

The Jets (1-1) did little offensively after two early scoring drives. Mark Sanchez passed for 138 yards and a touchdown, but New York hardly looked like the offensive juggernaut that piled up points in a 48-28 opening-week blowout win over Buffalo.
