    The 7-2 Titans visited the 3-6 Steelers in a battle of very talented AFC conference teams. The Titans game into the game focused after an upset lose to division rival texans and praticed hard all week. The steelers coached by Jethro came into this game still looking for answers and needed to rely heavily on talented steelers D. Both teams seemed unprepared for the rainstorm that happened during the game.

    The first quarter belonged soley with the titans as the steelers offense was unable to convert a 3rd down until late in the quarter. The titans started the game with the 10-0 lead in the first from a FG from Bironas and a 6 yard TD pass to TE Cook Jr. The steelers looked to get things started late in the first but it would have to wait until the second quarter, score at the end of the first, 10-0 titans.

    The Steelers continued on that nice drive and when the steelers had the ball at midfield, a surprise deep pass found crabtree wide open behind the zone coverage for the 50 yard TD pass from rothelisburger. 10-7 Titans. Titans would answer after multiple power run plays by Barber and a couple tosses and draws mixed in by CJ. FB Hall would cap the drive off from 2 yards out on a pinball run up the middle to bring the score back to ten points. 17-7. The steelers would be forced to punt on the next drive and the titans would get good field position to go up big early on the steelers but QB Young forced a pass to WR Kenny Britt and Steelers CB Taylor stepped in front of the pass and ran it back for 6. 17-14 Titans. CJ and Bironas would add 10 more points for titans to bring the score to 27-14 with less than a minute left in the half. The steelers would capitalize on the time given to them as Crabtree once again was wide open deep for the 46 yard TD to bring the halftime score to 27-21 Titans.

    The Steelers tried to keep the mojo flowing like in the 21 point second quarter but could only get one TD late in the half by RB Jones. The titans controlled the second half with long drives, keeping the ball on the ground with CJ and Barber. The titans added 24 points with scores from Barber, another from TE Cook Jr., another Bironas FG, and a 88 yard pick 6 by newcomer CB Newman. Titans win with a score of 51 to 28 by the steelers.


    GG Jethro, it was close until late and a real good game. In retrospect, i shouldnt have had returned that interception for the score to get up too much and im sure it could have looked like i was rubbing it in but it wasnt the intention, sorry bout that. Anyways, Great game again and GL the rest of the season and offseason.
