Titans Vs. Steelers Score: After Onside Kick And Interception, Steelers Still Lead 28-10

The Titans finally made some headway in cutting into the Steelers lead, with a drive that resulted in a short touchdown run by Chris Johnson.

Following that was an extremely strange pair of plays. The Titans tried an onside kick and appeared to recover it. One referee signaled that the Titans had the ball, and at exactly the same time, another signaled that the Steelers had it. Then both refs simultaneously switched their calls. The ball was ultimately (and apparently correctly) rewarded to the Titans.

On the next play, though, Matt Hasselbeck threw a pass that Brett Keisel hit near the line of scrimmage, and LaMarr Woodley intercepted it. If the Titans had scored again on that drive, it would have been a game, but for now, the Steelers’ 28-10 lead appears secure, with about one quarter left.

Maurkice Pouncey is back in the game, fortunately, so it appears his injury wasn't serious.
