Steelers Beat Giants in New Jersey

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Isaac Redman ran for 147 yards and the winning touchdown with 4:02 remaining Sunday as the Pittsburgh Steelers rallied past the New York Giants, 24-20.

The Steelers (5-3) snapped New York's four-game winning streak by overcoming some uncharacteristic sloppiness and dominating the second half.

Temporary relief from the destruction of Superstorm Sandy was what New York's fans sought, and the Giants (6-3) provided it for a while. But they couldn't stop Redman or touchdowns of 51 yards for Mike Wallace and 4 yards for Emmanuel Sanders on passes from Ben Roethlisberger.

The Steelers arrived in New Jersey hours before the game, which might have accounted for their carelessness. They had the fewest giveaways in the NFL entering the game, but were neglectful with the ball and in pass coverage; cornerback Keenan Lewis had 87 yards on two pass interference penalties, and they wasted some great kick returns, too.
