Titans 31, Steelers 14: Titans Prove a Point

by JJ Cooper

For the past month, the conventional wisdom had been building: no matter what the records were, Pittsburgh was the class of the AFC, while the Titans were the team that peaked too early, playing their best football in September and October.

We can throw that theory out.

Playing without its best player, Albert Haynesworth, Tennessee still beat the Steelers by three scores. The Titans offense became the first team to put up over 300 yards against the Steelers' defense all year. Haynesworth's fill in, rookie Jason Jones, recorded 3 1/2 sacks and the Titans forced four Steelers turnovers. Ben Roethlisberger threw two interceptions, and also fumbled four times, losing two of them.
