Steelers survive Titans on the road

Updated: Oct 27, 2020

Even after throwing 3 INT's in Nashville, Big Ben and the Steelers remain undefeated.

  • Steelers take advantage of Titans slow start, dominate the 1st half

  • Tennessee came to life after A.J. Brown's 73 yard touchdown in the third quarter

  • Titans had ten unanswered points in second half

  • Derrick Henry's patience pays off in the fourth quarter after being stuffed in the first three-too little, too late for Tennessee.

Game Story

First Half
