3 things we learned from Steelers win against Tennessee Titans
The Steelers held off a ‘furious’ comeback attempt from the Tennessee Titans to remain undefeated
I know I sound like a broken record but what a game! After jumping out to a 27-7 lead, the Steelers allowed the Titans to get back into the game, cutting the lead to just three points. Putting the 27-24 final score aside, the Steelers were in control of this game but let that control slip away.
As has been the theme for almost the entire season, the Steelers made what should have been an easy win, albeit there are really no easy wins in the NFL, into a win that came down to a missed FG. Honestly, had we gone to overtime, who knows what would have been the outcome?
I think this game was a great win in that it was our first road game since week one. Conversely, this game showed us that we are vulnerable and that we need to be able to put teams away when the opportunity presents itself.
What if we had not been able to build a 20 point lead? What if the Titans made the FG to send the game to overtime? What if we had been able to score at least another three points in the second half as opposed to being held to only one FG?
Fortunately, we don’t have to deal with the answers to the aforementioned questions, but I don’t think the Steelers should ignore answering those questions, even though the answers would be hypothetical.
Let’s take a look at three things we learned from the Steelers victory.
