Ep. 053 Steelers Starters Burnish Blades on Tennessee Titans

Steelers Starters Burnish Blades on Tennessee Titans

Steeler 16 Titans 6

It didn’t take long for the Steelers to throw off the rust and hurl the Titans a third loss in the preseason. Ben acquitted himself well, going 11/18 for 114 yards and a touchdown.

Interestingly, the Steelers defense prevented the Titans from moving past the 50 yard line in their first seven series and in six of those series the Titans did not achieve a first down.

It’s always good to see those interceptions (Terrell Edmunds and Marcus Allen) as well as some aggressive sacks with the Steelers tallying six.

If not for the initial 40 yard drive, the Titans would have averaged a paltry 3.25 yards per drive in the first half.  Note that Tennessee did not cross midfield until the 4th quarter.  Again, except for their initial drive, from Q1 through Q3, the Titans were four-and-out six straight drives. Not a bad day for the Black and Gold defense.
