It took exactly three seconds for the Steelers to score two points on a special teams blunder by the Titans.

It was the least amount of time the Steelers have ever taken to score their first points in a regular season game.

Shaun Suisham's poor kick was fielded just in front of the goal line by Titans KR Darius Reynaud, who took a step back into the end zone and downed it, resulting in a safety.

The safety was confirmed upon review, and the Steelers led 2-0 with 14:57 left in the first quarter, plus possession after a free kick.

The Steelers started offensive tackle Kelvin Beachum as the team's second tight end on the first play. They converted a 3rd-and-8 pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Jerricho Cotchery on their first offensive possession.

The Steelers have all six of their previous home openers under head coach Mike Tomlin.
