Rob Bironas kicked his fourth field goal, a 40-yarder as time expired, and the Tennessee Titans beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 26-23 on Thursday night to snap a two-game skid.
Matt Hasselbeck threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Britt with 4:19 left to tie it at 23, and the Titans (2-4) snapped a three-game losing streak against the Steelers.
Pittsburgh (2-3) lost its third straight road game this season and for the fifth time in six games dating to last season despite Ben Roethlisberger throwing for 363 yards and passing Terry Bradshaw as the Steelers' career passing leader.
Roethlisberger drove the Steelers into position to take the lead after the Titans tied it. Shaun Suisham, who already had connected from 29, 28 and 52 yards, had his 54-yard attempt fall short of the crossbar with 49 seconds left.
Tennessee's Chris Johnson ran for 91 yards on 19 carries, and Hasselbeck finished with 290 yards passing.
The Steelers were up 20-16 when Lawrence Timmons picked off Hasselbeck's pass, but they had to settle for Suisham's third field goal after moving the ball only 14 yards. That field goal put Pittsburgh up 23-16, and the NFL's fourth-ranked defense couldn't make that stand up.
Roethlisberger entered the game with 27,703 yards, 286 yards shy of Bradshaw's franchise record. Roethlisberger was 24 of 40 and passed Bradshaw with a 17-yard pass to Heath Miller late in the third quarter of his 119th game. Bradshaw played
The Steelers, who played without safety Troy Polamalu and linebacker LaMarr Woodley, head home with a much longer injury report.
Steelers running back Ike Redman caught four passes for 105 yards for the Steelers before injuring his right ankle in the third quarter and never returned. Running back Rashard Mendenhall also went down with an Achilles injury.
Center Maurkice Pouncey injured his right leg on the Steelers' first play from scrimmage and was ruled out for the rest of the game. Right tackle Marcus Gilbert hurt his right ankle in the second quarter.
Chiefs: Quarterback Matt Cassel has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay with a concussion, and Brady Quinn will start an NFL game for the first time since the 2009 season. Coach Romeo Crennel said that doctors have not cleared Cassel after he was hurt in the fourth quarter of a 9-6 loss to Baltimore last Sunday.
Jets: New York nose tackle Kenrick Ellis will be sidelined four to six weeks with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee.
Coach Rex Ryan said safety Eric Smith will miss Sunday's game against Indianapolis after he sprained a knee during "a scary moment" in practice Wednesday while trying to knock down a pass.
Eagles: Michael Vick, who served 18 months in federal prison on dogfighting charges, confirmed that his family has a dog. The Philadelphia Eagles' four-time Pro Bowl quarterback refused to discuss the topic just a day earlier.
"I understand the strong emotions by some people about our family's decision to care for a pet," Vick said in a statement. "As a father, it is important to make sure my children develop a healthy relationship with animals. I want to ensure that my children establish a loving bond and treat all of God's creatures with kindness and respect. Our pet is well cared for and loved as a member of our family."
Since his release from prison in 2009, Vick has worked with The Humane Society of the United States to speak out against animal cruelty.
Texans: Houston defensive coordinator Wade Phillips said the block by New York Jets guard Matt Slauson that ended Texans linebacker Brian Cushing's season was "unnecessary." Cushing tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in the second quarter of the Texans' 23-17 win Monday night on a low, rolling hit by Slauson.
"I thought it was unnecessary," Phillips said. "Whether it was legal or not, all that stuff -- I think it's just unnecessary to hit a defensive player when he can't see you."
Slauson was not penalized on the play, but a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that he has been fined $10,000 by the NFL.
