Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - Rob Bironas buried four field goals on Thursday, including a game-winning 40-yarder as time expired to send the Tennessee Titans to a 26-23 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers at LP Field. After Matt Hasselbeck led the Titans on an 11-play, 80-yard scoring drive to tie the game late in the fourth, Ben Roethlisberger moved the Steelers into Tennessee territory, but Shaun Suisham came up short on a 54-yard field goal attempt with less than a minute left to give the ball back to the Titans. Hasselbeck then hit Chris Johnson for five yards up to midfield and after an incompletion, found Jared Cook across the middle for 25 yards down to the Pittsburgh 25. After Johnson's 3-yard rush, Tennessee let the clock run down and called its final timeout with four seconds remaining to set the stage for Bironas' game- winning field goal. Hasselbeck finished 25-of-44 passing for 290 yards, one touchdown and one interception, while Johnson added 19 carries for 91 yards and also caught four passes for 23 yards as the Titans (2-4) snapped a three-game losing streak against the Steelers. Roethlisberger threw for 363 yards, one touchdown and one interception on 24- of-40 efficiency for the Steelers (2-3), who were coming off a 16-14 victory over in-state rival Philadelphia on Sunday.
