Steelers Come Up Short in Tennessee

What goes around comes around for the Steelers. Less than a week after Pittsburgh kicked a game-winning field goal as time expires to beat the Eagles, the Titans do the same thing to the Steelers in Nashville 26-23. Shaun Swisham missed a 54-yard attempt with less than a minute to go in the game for the visitors. Tennessee kicker Rob Bironas split the uprights on the final play of the game to lift the Titans to victory.

Steelers Quarterback Ben Roesthlisberger passed Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw as the team's all-time leader in passing yards during the game. He finished with 363 yards in the air with two touchdowns. Big Ben and the Steelers continue to struggle away from Heinz Field though. The setback is their third straight road loss this season and the fifth in six games going back to 2011.

Tennessee improves to 2-4 this year. Pittsburgh is now 2-3 and will have some extra time to prepare a game plan for their next opponent Cincinnati on October 21st.
