Jets Vs. Steelers Final Score: Super Bowl XLV To Feature AFC Champion Pittsburgh

The Pittsburgh Steelers held off a comeback rally by the New York Jets, taking a 24-19 AFC Championship Game win to earn a trip to Super Bowl XLV. The Steelers dominated the first half, giving themselves just enough of a cushion to keep the Jets from overtaking them.

They’ll play the NFC champ Green Bay Packers in Arlington, Texas on Feb. 6. The game will be broadcast on CBS and 6:30 pm EST.

It was a tale of two halves, but ended up being a very even game overall. The teams gained virtually the same amount of yardage and turned the ball over the same number of times. Jets QB Mark Sanchez threw for two touchdowns and 233 yards, while Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall put together 153 total yards from scrimmage.
