The win runs the Steelers' record to 7-4, while the Titans fall to 2-8 on the season. Bell had 33 carries in the best game for a Pittsburgh running back since 2010. He found the end zone with a 5-yard run in the 4th quarter. William Gay returned an interception 28 yards for a score, while Shaun Suisham kicked 2 field goals. All of this helped Pittsburgh get off to a 10-point lead, and then erase an 11-point deficit.
The Titans blew a 24-13 lead in their 4th consecutive loss. Tennessee's defense gave them that lead, sacking Roethlisberger 5 times and intercepting a pass in the end zone. The defense would falter though, as the Steelers held the ball for 39 minutes, 49 seconds, and had a 386-312 advantage in total offense.
Titans QB Zach Mettenberger finished 15/24 for 263 yards, 2 touchdown passes and 1 interception. He found Nate Washington (80 yards) and Chase Coffman (4 yards) in the end zone. That helped the Titans erase an early 10-0 deficit.
Roethlisberger got his first career win at LP field, missing the Steelers' win there in 2010. He finished 21/32 for 207 yards, 1 touchdown and his 5th interception of the season.
2 of the Steelers losses have come against the Buccaneers and the Jets, who have a combined 4 wins. With Monday's win, Steelers' coach Mike Tomlin is 1-8 against teams with a .200 winning percentage or worse.
The Steelers sit atop a tough AFC North division going in to a bye week, and will host the New Orleans Saints November 30th. The Titans will visit a frustrated Philadelphia Eagles team, who is coming off a blowout loss at Green Bay.
