    A win when they should have lost

    Lost the turnover battle 3 to 0 and still won

    Ben played terrible and was forcing balls, and they weren't even attempting to open it up and go down field...or even mid range

    Should have been a loss, but it's a win. And a win is a win.

    Have to win the bad ones to win it all, and this team has the feeling of a championship team that can battle through when needed and can stomp opponents if they clean things up

    should have lost?

    nah

    our 1st half against them was much better then their 2nd half vs. us

    overtime would have been interesting. inches away from salting the game away before that BS call on clay's catch.
    a play the patriots do all the time with never a flag thrown

    I know. That last interception was Benís worse pass of the year. Iím grateful for the win. We wonít lack for motivation next week. Gotta play a complete game next week. Not just the first half.
    From the 2010-2019 season, (A 9 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks.

    Dolphin fans in the 90ís who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the playoffs in the 70ís...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches

    Hmmm, you must have watched a different game than I did. I saw an offense that piled up 24 pts in a half. And stifled the #1 rushing attack. Then made plays when they needed to.

    Teams lose most games turning the ball over 2 times (I don't really count the INT at the end of the first half). The Steelers were lucky at the end with the missed FG. Ultimately, Titans kicker didn't execute. On the flip side the Titans had their share of lucky tip balls/plays. The Steelers made enough plays to win the game. That's all that matters.

    Whatever floats people's boats if they believed the Steelers should had loss. The Steelers are 6-0 and that isn't going to change.

    Yep; we’ll take it.

    there easily could have been a bunch of turnovers from each side with all the deflections and funny bounces. i thought connor's fumble in the 1st Qr was easily recovered by tennesse before seeing connor get it back on replay

    TEN won a few games due to turnovers. The Steelers defense was too much for them to take advantage in this game.

    Play of the game was Spillane stuffing Henry with gravy on top at the goal line. Losing Bush might not be so bad after all.
