Emmanuel Sanders scored the game's only touchdown in the third quarter on a 55-yard pass from Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who finished with 264 passing yards and no interceptions, compared to opposite number Geno Smith's two picks.
The Steelers' other points came via four Shaun Suisham field goals, while the Jets were limited to two Nick Folk field goals.
