Bell has career night in win over Titans

It’s hard to figure out these Pittsburgh Steelers. One minute Big Ben’s throwing 6 TDs in back-to-back games, and then next minute they’re pounding the rock like back when “The Bus” was wearing the yellow and black.

Last night, the offensive coordinator fed the ball to Le’Veon Bell like he was doling out E’s to a London raver.

Bell took the ball and ran with it, literally and figuratively – and the results were a career night.

Bell’s performance was strong enough to fuel a Pittsburgh comeback after the Titans scored 17 unanswered points in the second and third quarters. Zach Mettenberger had yet another promising night as he threw for 263 yards on 15/24 passing for 2 TDs and 1 interception. Unfortunately, his one big mistake on the night did go back the other way for a William Gay touchdown.

Gay has 2 INTs on the season and he converted both into Pick-6’s.

In the fourth quarter Bell punched it in from 5 yards out to cut Tennessee’s lead to four at 24-20, and then Antonio Brown hauled in a 12-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger with just four minutes left to play.

Mettenberger was unable to engineer a game-winning drive as the Titans dropped their fourth straight to fall to (2-8) on the season.

Act like a baby and you’ll get treated like one

At one point during the Monday Night contest, the Steelers’ RB LeGarrette Blount stormed off the field back to the locker room.

Perhaps he was upset at having not been given a single carry all night?

Whatever the bee was in his bonnet, he should have controlled his temper. The Pittsburgh Steelers are not a franchise to muck about with locker room cancers.

Buh-bye LeGarrette.
