Steeler Demolish Titans!

The Steelers absolutely unloaded on the Tennessee Titans Thursday night. Ben Roethlisberger threw for 299 yards and four touchdowns three of them to Antonio Brown. The patched up secondary had four interceptions and the front seven completely dominated the Titans running game.

The offensive game plan was about Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown and the Titans had no answer for either., Ben Roethlisberger hit Antonio Brown for 41 yards for a touchdown on the first series that set the tone. He engineered scoring drives of 75, 75 and 51 yards by completing 17 of 20 passes for 165 yards and three TDs on the first three possessions of the second half and pulled away from the Titans.

The defense had a big game, registering five sacks and holding the Titans running game to just 52 yards. The secondary put together a solid game with four interceptions including one by Coty Sensabaugh, who was filling in for the injured Joe Haden. Marcus Mariotta threw for 300 yards but he was never effective and he scored on a busted running play. The Titans running game never got on track, despite several missed tackles.

It was a great bounce back week for the Steelers coming off a terrible game in Indianapolis. The offensive game plan was changed to be more pass focused on the Steelers drop 40 points on a Dick LeBeau led defense which harassed Roethlisberger all day. It was a great victory in tough circumstances.


My “GAME BEER” goes to: Ben Roethlisberger, for showing that he still can get it done. He is now starting to kick it in gear! Also Considered: Antonio Brown, who had 10 catches for 144 yards! Mike Hilton and Coty Sensabaugh for each grabbing an interception!

Where I watched the game: Buckley’s for the first half with KGB! We had Wings and Buffalo Chicken‘Skins. Then my beloved Irish Pub turns into “amateur night” so we went across the street to Sea Cove, for the second half where we finished the game! KGB “won” the Steelers jersey giveaway #78 Villanueva! Beer of Choice was Miller Lite and Narraganset Lager. (If it is good enough for Captain Quint it’s good enough for you!)  KGB had Sam Winter and Harp!

My Stat of the week: Going with 4! Four Touchdowns thrown by Ben Roethlisberger and Four Interceptions by the Steelers rebuilt secondary! Both impressive, considering Ben was harassed all day by the Titans pass rush and the secondary was playing without Joe Haden.

My Thoughts on next week: Very interesting game, the Packers were walloped by the Rabirds at home…which is why this game scares me! Without Aaron Rogers this is a different team clearly. Look for a much tougher contest with the Steelers pulling it out.

This week’s Jersey: Because it was a Thursday Night Game I didn’t wear a jersey this week. Rocked a Steelers tie to work and of course Beer We Go 2017 Shirt to the Bar.
