The Steelers' domination in the first half against the Titans was nearly complete. Late in the second quarter, the Steelers had a 21-3 lead and were charging downfield in a drive that could have given them a three-touchdown lead. Then there was apparently some miscommunication between Ben Roethlisberger and his teammates. It looked like Roethlisberger would spike the ball, but instead he threw some bubble-screen type of pass to the right side, apparently intended for Hines Ward. It didn't look like any of his teammates were prepared for it, though, and it went right into the hands of Cortland Finnegan. The Titans were therefore able to escape to the locker room with only an 18-point deficit.
Still, this was a surprisingly great first half for the Steelers, who dominated in every phase of the game. The Steelers' offense looked terrific throughout.
