Week 11 Vs Titans

Ben Roethlisberger struggled this evening throwing for 207 yards and a 12 yard touchdown pass to Antonio Brown. However, he was sacked 5 times and threw an interception that set up a Zach Mettenberger 80 yard touchdown pass to Nate Washington to give the Titans a 17 to 13 lead at halftime. Then in the second half, Le’veon Bell ran the ball very well rushing for 204 yards and a touchdown. The defense didn’t had a sack but put the pressure on Mettenberger, and shut down the Titans running game. The problems were penalties that took away a couple good kickoff returns, giving up two touchdowns passes from Mettenberger, and the offensive line not protecting Roethlisberger. These problems could be fixed during the bye week, and 5 defensive players could be back from injuries. The Steelers won 27-24 to go to 7-4 going into the bye week and they will take on the New Orleans Saints at Heinz Field on November 30th with kickoff at 1:00 P.M. However, there is a story that LeGarrette Blount led the field before the end of the game, and was mad that he had no carries. According to Ed Bouchette, the rest of the team wanted him released because of his poor attitude, and might be dragging Bell down. Blount could be released and will have to deal with drug charges with Bell from the pre season before a game vs the Philadelphia Eagles.
