Steelers vs. Titans: 10 Observations from Thursday Night Football

The Pittsburgh Steelers battled the Tennessee Titans on Thursday Night Football at LP Stadium, and the end result was a painfully disappointing 26-23 defeat for the Black and Gold.

Entering the key Week 6 contest, both teams desperately needed wins for different reasons. Fans in the Steel City hoped for their team's first winning record of 2012.  For the Music City, well...any positive momentum would aid in the recovery from a 1-4 start.

That momentum was realized, and Titans fans had reason to celebrate following a game-winning 40-yard field goal by Rob Bironas. 

Once again, it was the same story for the 2-3 Steelers: lost opportunities, key blunders, frustrating injuries, poor play on the road and another loss in the final seconds.  Worse yet, it was a third defeat to an AFC opponent.

Instead of 10 days to celebrate a tough win, the Black and (Blue) Gold get to spend a week-and-a-half soul-searching.  Another loss to a seemingly overmatched underdog has fans wondering if the Steelers aren't already out of the division race in a competitive AFC North.

With tough questions ahead in the coming days, here are 10 observations from a nightmarish night.
