Facing an onslaught of Titans' blitzes, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 21 of 32 throws for 207 yards and a touchdown with an interception in Monday's 27-24 road win. Despite absorbing five sacks and several other big hits, Roethlisberger led consecutive second-half touchdown drives to secure the victory.
The pressure bothered Roethlisberger in the first half when he underthrew a wide-open Martavis Bryant on a potential touchdown, then overthrew him on an end-zone fade. Roethlisberger and wideout Antonio Brown had miscommunication right before halftime, leading to Jason McCourty's end-zone interception.
Roethlisberger heated up in the second half. On play-action, he zipped a 12-yard touchdown to Brown to put Pittsburgh ahead for good.
Roethlisberger has thrown two touchdown passes over the past two weeks after throwing 12 in the previous two games. He's on a bye Week 12.
