Steelers vs Jets: 10 Things We Learned from Pittsburgh's 27-10 Win
Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers have one in the win column.

Feel better now, Pittsburgh Steelers fans?

The Pittsburgh Steelers avoided their first 0-2 start since 2002 with a 27-10 win over the New York Jets Sunday at Heinz Field.

There's something more satisfying about the Steelers' first win this season compared to last season.

Last year, the Steelers breezed past the Seattle Seahawks, who didn't scare anyone, to get to 1-1.

This season, the Steelers got into the win column with more of a hard-fought victory over a team they've never beaten easily since the turn of the century.

The Steelers are 5-3 against the Jets since 2001, and Sunday's victory was the first time during that span that they've beaten the Jets by more than two touchdowns.

The Steelers played a sloppy first half and overcame deficits of 7-3 and 10-6 before dominating in the second half on Sunday.

It doesn't hurt, too, that the Ravens and Patriots lost. It's way too early to start looking at the playoff picture, but at least the Steelers are back in step with other AFC powers.

Here's what they showed us on Sunday.
