Pick-Six: Steelers Pick Off Mark Sanchez, Jets To Advance To Super Bowl

Incredibly, one of the enduring images of Pittsburgh’s 24-19 win over the Jets in the AFC title will be Jets QB Mark Sanchez picking his nose and then wiping it on his backup Mark Brunell.

The cameras are always on Sanchez.

Anyhow, the Steelers built a 24-0 first half lead before New York narrowed the deficit to five late in the fourth quarter.

However, the Jets perhaps took a bit too much time on drives in the fourth.

The Jets had two possessions in the game’s final quarter that lasted 11:42 seconds. They netted a grand total of seven points.

Only a safety following Pittsburgh’s goal line stand of a Jets drive salvaged anything out of those possessions.

Pittsburgh advances to its eighth Super Bowl in franchise history with the win.

In a cruel twist for Cowboys fans, Terrible Towels will litter Cowboys Stadium on Super Bowl Sunday.
