September 19, 2010   ·     ·   Jump to comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers shut down the Tennessee Titans' Chris Johnson on Sunday to pick up another huge victory without their franchise quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger.
With only one win in Tennessee since the Titans moved there, the Steelers had an uphill battle without starting left tackle Max Starks and starting nose tackle Casey Hampton.
Their challenge got even bigger after losing quarterback Dennis Dixon and right guard Trai Essex to injury, as well as having to have further shuffling on the offensive line due to dehydration issues with tackles Jonathan Scott and Flozell Adams.
The defense was up to the challenge, forcing six turnovers (with a seventh coming on special teams) as they once again put the Steelers in position to win, even with an offense that has struggled to move the ball.
