Steelers almost blow another

After a dull, listless, boring here we go again first three quarters where the Steelers appeared to lose to another terrible 2-7 team, they came alive and reversed the game and probably their entire season with a 27-24 come from behind victory over the Tennessee Titans.
The win moved the Steelers, 7-4, into second place behind the Cincinnati Bengals, 5-3-1 going into their bye week, one game ahead of the Cleveland Browns and the Baltimore Ravens both at 6-4.
After playing two great games against the Indianapolis Colts and the Baltimore Ravens the Steelers stunk up the place against the lowly New York Jets, 3-8 with turnovers being the deciding factors in the game. Well, turnovers almost were the key again until Ben Roethlisberger got his game together and Todd Haley decided to test one of the worst run defenses in the NFL by running Le’Veon Bell again, and again, and again. Bell finished the game with 204 yards on 33 carries, the third best in Steelers history.
Even though Ben was sacked several times by a defense which was a carbon copy of the Steelers, and threw an interception in the end zone, the offensive line performed superbly in opening holes for Bell and actually protecting Ben in the second half, especially the fourth quarter.
