Knee jerk reactions from the Steelers Week 11 prime time clash with the Titans

Behind the Steel Curtain - Thu, 11/16/2017 - 10:54pm

With no time to rationally think, one BTSC writer offers up his immediate thoughts from the Steelers effort against the visitors from Music City.

A knee jerk reaction is common for most people, especially Steeler fans. Of course, I like to shoot first and apologize later. In this series, I like to record my immediate emotional reaction. I have those often. I know you in Steeler Nation do too. After we have a chance to review things, we tend to alter our mindset. While watching the Steelers and the Titans, I recorded my initial thoughts in real time with no time to reconsider them. Take these in. As always, I welcome you to weigh in.

Quarter 1
  • I hate Skycam already. I might have to turn off the tv and switch to Bill and Tunch.
  • Nice first drive. Love the no huddle and really love Primetime Ben. If they stick with the no huddle, no contest.
  • The AB statue celebration....not too bad.
  • That delay of game call sucked. The Steelers defense was off the field.
  • Hargrave=hustle.
  • Artie is getting picked on.
  • I think the Mariota TD will be tough to overturn, but I don't think he got in.
  • Conner having a carry for a loss is rare.
  • Cam Heyward is the heart and soul of the defense.
Quarter 2
  • Cam's offside could be a killer.
  • Great discipline by the ST for not going after the ball on T.J. Watt's block. An over eager player could have cost a large parcel of field position.
  • They need to capitalize after the block, can't let this Titan team hang around.
  • Still hating Sky cam.
  • Tough call on Tuitt.
  • Defensive discipline is going out the window.
  • Coty Sensabaugh: Proving the "Next Man Up" theory well for 2017.
  • This game should be 21-7. But it's Team Turmoil.
  • What a nice defensive play by Hilton on Murray late in the half.
  • Clock management by Mike Tomlin...Am I on Punk'd? They can add on some points here.
  • The cardinal sin on a screen is running before you catch it? Lot's of sin on this drive.
  • Steelers got a gift on the fumble. Spot should have gone back to spot of the fumble,
  • Boswell is looking good on a windy night, but give Berry an assist on the hold.
Quarter 3
  • On second thought, maybe Sensabaugh disproved "Next Man Up" after all.
  • JuJu was money in traffic on that third-down conversion.
  • I love Collinsworth. He is a football clinic.
  • This might be the week the Steelers crack 30.
  • NBC has the score wrong. Didn't give Steelers the extra point.
  • Artie Burnt. Just got lucky.
  • That sack by Heyward was huge.
  • The offensive line is going to get a Ben killed.
  • One of the prettiest drives of the season at the end of the third.
  • The Reuben from Subway looks horrendous. Plus, they ruined Rock Around The Clock with that ad.
  • Overturning Bell's TD, but not Mariota's. Hmmmmmmm.
Quarter 4
  • Jesse James had my favorite celebration of the season. Obviously, he hasn't had time to plan an elaborate one or didn't think he'd need to.
  • As a big fan of play action, I'd like them to keep that play in their repertoire.
  • Brown's third TD was majestic.
  • No reason for Bell to still be in the game.
  • 40 anybody?
  • This was a statement win.
  • Plenty of talent on this Tennessee team.

Where BAD was right

  • Adding points on good clock management was vital.
  • Sky cam really sucks.
  • They did break 30...finally.
  • Broke 40 too.

Where BAD was wrong

  • It was a contest, because the Steelers abandoned the no huddle for a majority of the game.
  • Ben did not get killed by his offensive line.

Instant analysis: Antonio Brown has early light up night against Titans

post-gazette.com - Steelers/NFL - Thu, 11/16/2017 - 10:50pm

The Steelers got a 40-17 win against the Tennessee Titans Thursday at Heinz Field. They improved to 8-2 on the season. Here are some initial thoughts on the victory

Steelers vs. Titans Final Score: ‘Home Sweet Home’ for the Steelers as the offense finally wakes up, beat the Titans 40-17

Behind the Steel Curtain - Thu, 11/16/2017 - 10:43pm

The Pittsburgh Steelers got the best of the Tennessee Titans, in a big way, on Thursday Night Football in Week 11.

The Pittsburgh Steelers (7-2) and Tennessee Titans (6-3) went head-to-head in Week 11 at Heinz Field on Thursday Night Football, and these two teams both had a lot on the line. Both teams winners of their last four games, the AFC Playoff standings certainly would be impacted with the outcome of this contest.

Getting off to an early start was paramount for both teams, and the Steelers’ offense chose to receive the football to start the game, and it didn’t take them long to make a statement. Utilizing the no-huddle offense, Ben Roethlisberger hit a multitude of receivers before hitting Antonio Brown for a touchdown to give the Steelers an early 7-0 lead.

On Tennessee’s first possession, it was Marcus Mariota who made the first mistake of the game, throwing an interception to Mike Hilton on third down, but the Titans’ defense was able to hold the Steelers to a Chris Boswell field goal to extend their lead 10-0 in the first quarter.

Tennessee answered the Steelers’ fast start with a nice touchdown drive of their own, orchestrated by Marcus Mariota hitting a wide array of receivers on third down, and capping it off with a nifty touchdown run to make the score 10-7 nearing the end of the first quarter.

The Titans took the second quarter moving the ball with ease, but after a Cameron Heyward sack, it forced Tennessee into a 48-yard field goal attempt by Ryan Succop. But the kick was blocked by T.J. Watt, giving Pittsburgh their best starting field position of the game.

The Steelers did nothing with the turnover, and their next three offensive possessions, but within 5-minutes left in the half, Mariota was picked off for the second time, this time by Coty Sensabaugh, which set up the Steelers just outside the Tennessee red-zone.

Despite the field position, the Steelers settled for another Boswell field goal to give them a 13-7 lead, and this was a huge win for the Tennessee defense to hold the Pittsburgh offense to six points off the two first half turnovers.

After the Pittsburgh defense was able to get a quick three-and-out, Roethlisberger and company were able to move the ball into field goal range, and Boswell’s 50-yard field goal gave Pittsburgh a 16-7 lead heading into halftime.

The Titans received the kickoff to start the second half, and the first play from scrimmage was a 75-yard touchdown pass from Mariota to Rishard Mathews to make the score 16-14 before most fans even got back to their seats.

With their first possession of the second half, Pittsburgh answered the Titans’ score with a touchdown drive of their own. After huge catches by JuJu Smith-Schuster and Le’Veon Bell, Roethlisberger hit Antonio Brown for his second touchdown reception of the game, giving the Steelers a 23-14 lead.

Mariota continued to work his magic every time he touched the football, and his favorite target, Delanie Walker, moved the Titans into the Pittsburgh red-zone with a 42-yard reception, but Walker let down his quarterback after dropping an easy touchdown. Mariota was sacked on the next play, forcing a Ryan Succop field goal to make the score 23-17.

Pittsburgh utilized their no-huddle offense on their next drive, and Ben Roethlisberger was dialed in. Great throws to Smith-Schuster, Brown and Jesse James moved Pittsburgh in the red-zone, but it looked as if it was a run which hit pay dirt for Pittsburgh as Le’Veon Bell scored his first touchdown of the game, but after review it was deemed Bell did not cross the goal line before his shin hit the ground. On third-and-goal Roethlisberger hit Jesse James with this third touchdown of the game, and giving the Steelers a 30-17 lead heading into the fourth quarter.

After the Pittsburgh defense forced a three-and-out, it was more of the Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown show. A huge conversion to Brown early in the drive set up one of the best catches of the year with Brown pinning the football against this helmet for his third touchdown of the game, and extended the Pittsburgh lead 37-17.

After Mariota threw his third interception, this time to Robert Golden, the Pittsburgh offense took over again and extended their lead with a Chris Boswell field goal, extending the lead 40-17 late in the fourth quarter.

Mariota would throw his fourth interception to Sean Davis, and Landry Jones and James Conner were able to get some repetitions in garbage time in prime time. However, after all was said and done, the final score was 40-17 in favor of the home team.

The victory moves the Steelers’ record to 8-2, and not only keeps them in the lead in the AFC North, but in the entire AFC. Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news on the Steelers heading into Week 12, and beyond.
