Final Score: Tennessee 26, Pittsburgh 23

The Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2) were beaten the Tennessee Titans (1-4) at Nashville's LP Field. The game was televised on the NFL Network

It pits two teams seemingly headed in very different directions against one another. The Steelers are coming off a last-minute victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The Titans are coming off a 30-7 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Pittsburgh is hoping to build off their win last Sunday and start a winning streak for the first time this season. The Steelers looked much improved on defense last week after struggling badly against the Oakland Raiders before the bye week. They returned linebacker James Harrison and running back Rashard Mendenhall to the starting lineup and both are slated to start tonight.

Unfortunately, the Steelers lost both linebacker LaMarr Woodley and safety Troy Polamalu for at least this week's contest. How well they replace them will be a big story line in this game.

The Titans are reeling and have lost young starting quarterback Jake Locker among others. Veteran Matt Hasselbeck is under center tonight, but his history against the Steelers isn't very good. The Titans are hoping to get runner Chris Johnson going again, but that may be tough against a staunch Pittsburgh front.
