Steelers Vs. Titans 2nd Half Open Thread: Steelers down 16-10, Roethlisberger will likely break Bradshaw's record,

New, comments

Ben Roethlisberger needs 67 more passing yards to break Terry Bradshaw's career passing mark, but that won't be well received if the Steelers' performance in the final two quarters looks like the first half.

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

An 89-yard pass to Mike Wallace and a 55-yard pass to Isaac Redman (a career-high) are the big offensive plays. There just isn't much in between.

QB Ben Roethlisberger is approaching Terry Bradshaw's franchise record 29,989 yards, and it appears he will break that record in a second half that would struggle to look worse for either team.

It's been an ugly first half of football on both sides of the ball. After big play to Wallace, the Steelers looked to be in control, but the same rhythm-based passing that Peyton Manning and Carson Palmer have used in wins over the Steelers is being employed by Titans QB Matt Hasselbeck.

The coverage is not producing consistent positive results, although there have been some peak-and-valley moments for a few players.

Cornerback Ike Taylor is still unable to stick in deep coverage early in the game, having been beaten deep a few times already. We mentioned the likelihood of the Titans challenging Taylor with wide receiver Kenny Britt early in this game and that's exactly what the Titans have done.

It's a punt fest in Nashville tonight. Stick around Behind The Steel Curtain, we're bound to have some news on some kind of injury for an offensive lineman at some point.
