FINAL SCORE: Pittsburgh Steelers 26, New York Giants 16. Full recap to come.
2 TDs for Slayton: The Giants added a late score when Darius Slayton caught a 7-yard touchdown pass from Daniel Jones. That gave Slayton two touchdowns on the night. The Giants failed to make the two-point conversion try. It’s 26-16 Pittsburgh with 1:52 remaining.
Out of reach? Pittsburgh likely put the game out of reach when Roethlisberger hit JuJu Smith-Schuster with an 8-yard scoring pass with 5:23 to play. The extra point by Chris Boswell made the score 26-10, Pittsburgh. The Steelers went 75 yards in 11 plays, taking 7:00 off the clock.
Steelers up their lead: Pittsburgh took advantage of the Giants turnover, going 62 yards in nine plays to set up a 36-yard Chris Boswell field goal. That gave the Steelers a 19-10 lead with 14:19 to play. Two-score game. That could be difficult for the Giants.
Coming up empty: The Giants just went 87 yards in 19 plays, holding the ball for 8:50, and came away with nothing. After reaching the 4-yard line, Daniel Jones was intercepted late in the third quarter by Cameron Heyward after being hit while throwing by edge rusher Bud Dupree.

Steelers lead, 16-10, at the half: The Steelers went 78 yards in eight plays for a touchdown to take 16-10 lead with :07 left in the half. The touchdown came on a 13-yard pass from Ben Roethlisberger to James Washington.
Saquon Barkley just did this.
The Steelers pulled within a point, 10-9, on a 10-yard Ben Roethlisberger to JuJue Smith-Schuster touchdown pass. That capped a six-play, 36-yard, 3:34 drive that was set up when T.J. Watt intercepted a Daniel Jones pass. Chris Boswell missed the extra point, leaving the Giants ahead by a point with 9:01 remaining in the half.
Giants take 10-3 lead: Daniel Jones hit Darius Slayton on a 41-yard TD strike to give the Giants a 10-3 lead with 13:45 left in the first half. The play came one play after Joe Haden of Pittsburgh was called for pass interference on a third-and-13 throw intended for Evan Engram. The scoring drive was six plays, 75 yards, 2:04 time of possession.
Knotted at 3-3: Chris Boswell made a 41-yard field goal to cap a 13-play, 59-yard, 6:11 drive that tied the score with :49 left in the first quarter.
The Giants take a 3-0 lead with 10:34 left in the first quarter on a 21-yard field goal by Graham Gano. The score was set up when DeVante Downs recovered a Diontae Johnson muffed punt at the Pittsburgh 3-yard line.
