The Steelers lost their Thursday Night Football game against the Titans this Thursday in Tennessee in the closing seconds. The two teams really put on a great show as they both battled and remained close and competitive throughout. The Titans got a revival from veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, and were able to get some decent rushing from Chris Johnson who continues to try and get himself to the great production he has reached years prior. Meanwhile, the Steelers just did not look like themselves and were devastated by an injury bug in the contest.
The Steelers got out to an early lead 10-6 after the first quarter thanks to a big 82 yard scoring pass from Ben to Mike Wallace. The Titans were able to comeback in the 2nd quarter when they outscored the Steelers 10-0 however, and went into the half with a 16-10 lead. The Steelers then took the lead midway through the fourth quarter. It seemed that momentum had switched at the worst possible time and Pittsburgh would cruise to victory.
The Titans hung in, however, and were able to get a scoring TD of their own to tie the game up. This was despite some big drops in the end zone by Kenny Britt who had a bad case of the bobbles. Pittsburgh and Ben had the ball with a few minutes left though, which is usually a death sentence for opposing teams. They drove down and got their kicker into field goal range with a chance to take the lead with under a minute left in regulation on a 54 yard boot. The kick would have been his career long but he came up short and the Titans got the ball near the 50. They then hit a long gainer and got in range for the game winning field goal, which was up and good as time expired.
