Titans Routed On Opening Day

PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Tennessee Titans scored on their first possession of the new season - and that may have been the worst thing they did today. That 11-play, 61-yard opening drive got the Pittsburgh Steelers' attention, and it turned out to be the only score the Titans managed in a 34-7 loss to their one-time division rivals. The Titans wound up moving the ball, but the Steelers kept them out of the end zone by forcing two fumbles and two interceptions. Steve McNair was 18-26 for 219 yards.

The Steelers are coming off a 15-1 season that ended with a 41-27 loss to eventual Super Bowl champion New England in the A-F-C championship game last January. Most of the same cast is back, with the goal of going further than they did last season. And the only way to do so is to get to the Super Bowl.
