The Tennessee Titans lost their fourth game in a row on Thursday night, falling to the Pittsburgh Steelers 20-16. The Titans are now 3-5 on the season, and their playoff hopes are fading quickly.
The Titans' offense struggled once again, failing to score more than 20 points for the third time in their last four games. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw for 220 yards and one touchdown, but he also had two interceptions. Running back Derrick Henry was held to just 60 yards on 18 carries.
The Titans' defense played well, limiting the Steelers to just 290 total yards. However, they were unable to stop the Steelers on their final drive of the game, which ended with a Chris Boswell field goal to win it.
The Titans will need to turn things around quickly if they want to make the playoffs. They have a tough schedule coming up, with games against the Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, and Cincinnati Bengals.
What went wrong for the Titans?
There were a few things that went wrong for the Titans in this game. First, their offense was unable to get going. They had just 257 total yards of offense, and they converted only 4 of 13 third-down attempts.
Second, the Titans made too many mistakes. They had three turnovers, including two interceptions by Tannehill. They also had several penalties, which cost them field position and momentum.
Finally, the Titans were unable to stop the Steelers on their final drive of the game. The Steelers marched 80 yards down the field in 10 plays to kick the game-winning field goal.
What do the Titans need to do to turn things around?
The Titans need to find a way to get their offense going. They need to run the ball more effectively, and they need to give Tannehill more time to throw. They also need to reduce the number of turnovers they make.
On defense, the Titans need to shore up their pass defense. They have allowed the most passing yards in the NFL this season. They also need to find a way to get more pressure on the quarterback.
The Titans have a tough road ahead of them, but they are still in the playoff race. If they can find a way to turn things around, they could make a run at the playoffs.
