Pittsburgh rallies past Tennessee
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Brown with 9:01 left, and the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Tennessee Titans 27-24 on Monday night.
The Steelers (7-4) staged an impressive rally in the second half to keep pace in the successful AFC North heading into their bye. Le’Veon Bell ran for 204 yards and a TD, and William Gay returned an interception 28 yards for a score. Shaun Suisham kicked two field goals.
The Titans (2-8) blew a 24-13 lead on a night they sacked Roethlisberger five times and intercepted a pass in the end zone. Rookie Zach Mettenberger threw for 263 yards and two touchdown passes, and rookie Bishop Sankey ran for another score.
But Tennessee’s offense fizzled in the fourth quarter. When Pittsburgh got the ball back with 6:58 left, the Steelers didn’t give it back and knelt out for the win.
