Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - Rob Bironas buried four field goals on
Thursday, including a game-winning 40-yarder as time expired to send the
Tennessee Titans to a 26-23 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers at LP Field.
After Matt Hasselbeck led the Titans on an 11-play, 80-yard scoring drive to
tie the game late in the fourth, Ben Roethlisberger moved the Steelers into
Tennessee territory, but Shaun Suisham came up short on a 54-yard field goal
attempt with less than a minute left to give the ball back to the Titans.
Hasselbeck then hit Chris Johnson for five yards up to midfield and after an
incompletion, found Jared Cook across the middle for 25 yards down to the
Pittsburgh 25. After Johnson's 3-yard rush, Tennessee let the clock run down
and called its final timeout with four seconds remaining to set the stage for
Bironas' game- winning field goal. Hasselbeck finished 25-of-44 passing for
290 yards, one touchdown and one interception, while Johnson added 19 carries
for 91 yards and also caught four passes for 23 yards as the Titans (2-4)
snapped a three-game losing streak against the Steelers. Roethlisberger threw
for 363 yards, one touchdown and one interception on 24- of-40 efficiency for
the Steelers (2-3), who were coming off a 16-14 victory over in-state rival
Philadelphia on Sunday.
