    Tennessee Titans at Pittsburgh Steelers


    The Tennessee Titans opened their season on the road in Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers (AveryB). In an early AFC matchup, both teams would have liked to get off to a 1-0 start. However; as we know, only 1 team would be able to complete said task. To Pittsburgh we go:

    The game opened with a quick three and out by the Steelers. Big Ben, as was the case for most of the day, was let down by some key drops by his receivers. The Titans then took over and put up the first points of the early season by way of a Rob Bironas FG. After yet another quick three and out by the Steelers offense, the Titans were in prime position to takeover early. However Jake Locker would have his arm hit as he threw the ball, and while in the air Steeler LB Lamar Woodley would catch it and take it to the house. The Steelers would take the early 7-3 lead. Unfortunately for the black and yellow though, that would be their only highlight of the day. The Titans would go on to score 35 unanswered points, thanks in large part to their defense. Alterraun Verner would intercept Ben Roethlisberger twice on the day, and a couple of others would add picks of their own. DE Kamerion Wimbley would apply pressure on Big Ben throughout the day and came away with 2 sacks. Offensively, the Titans were led on the ground by Chris Johnson. Johnson just could not be stopped on the ground, and was eventually pulled in the 4th quarter once the lead was in tact. The Steelers, trying to get a change of pace or just to rest Roethlisberger, pulled the QB in the 4th for Bruce Gradkowski. Gradkowski, like Roethlisberger, failed to move his offense, however. The Titans would cruise to a week 1 victory 38-7 over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Player of the Game:

    RB Chris Johnson – 18 carries, 173 yards, 2 TDs


    AveryB .... good game man, good luck this season!
