“It was a good night for us. Good on a lot of fronts. Good to get Ben (Roethlisberger) in a stadium along with some others and see that group work together. Although it wasn’t a complete body of work, we were able to get him some situational ball. Good night in that regard. I like the energy the guys played with. It’s good to watch them function in a foreign environment. Be prepared to deal with some things that come with playing outside of Heinz Field.” — Coach Tomlin.
The Steelers’ defense opened the scoring on the Titans’ second possession.
Defensive end Stephon Tuitt blasted into the Titans’ backfield on second-and-10 from the Tennessee 4-yard line and dropped quarterback Marcus Mariota for a safety.
The subsequent free kick set the Steelers up at their 42 with 9:06 left in the first quarter.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger took advantage of the good field position and directed a nine-play, 58-yard drive in 4:41 that ended with a 17-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. Running backs James Conner and Trey Edmunds each converted third-and-1 rushes into first downs on the march.
Roethlisberger finished 8-for-13 passing for 63 yards and a touchdown in his three series, his first work of the preseason.
