Titans Wheels Come Off In 40-17 Loss To Steelers

While the score does not reflect how close the game was at times, the Titans came up short as the Steelers took the win 40-17.

Going in the Titans knew this would be the toughest game of the year thus far.  The Steelers are on a winning streak, have star players through out the offense, and have the pedigree to match.

Thursday nights game remained close through the third quarter as the Steelers led 23-17.  The blowout ensued after two Marcus Mariota interceptions that were forced to keep the Titans in it.

Mariota threw a total of 4 interceptions the first of which was a slight over throw.  The second came off a great player from ex titan Coty Sensabaugh.

While these interception will be the focus of the loss, it was the inability of the defense being able to stop Steelers receiver Antonio Brown that caused the Titans offense to try to play beyond their means.

The Titans defense elected to focus their attention on RB Levon Bell and let Adoree’ Jackson cover Brown.  While Jackson shows all the abilities for the task, he showed he does not have the experience yet to cover the elite.

The Titans run game was held in check by the Steelers only delivering 52 yards on 21 carries.  Mariota did establish a deep threat in the game hitting Richard Matthews for a 75 yard TD.

The score shows a blow out but this game came down to five missed opportunities in key moments.  However, thats what a team with a pedigree can do.  They can keep leaning the entire game and force mistakes.

Our game prediction had the Steelers way ahead in this one based primarily on experience.  The Steelers have veteran stars that have played together.

With the Titans now 6-4, they are one game back from the Jags with a divisional game next.  Look for the Titans to make a statement Sunday against the Colts.
