The Latest on Week 7 in the NFL (all times EDT):
Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers won the toss and used up more than nine minutes to take an early lead in the showdown of the AFC’s last two undefeated teams.
The Steelers went 75 yards in 16 plays over 9:18, and Roethlisberger hit Diontae Johnson for an 11-yard TD that put Pittsburgh ahead of Tennessee 7-0. It was the first time the Steelers scored a touchdown on their opening drive in 23 games.
Tennessee and Pittsburgh both came in 5-0 in this game rescheduled by the Titans' COVID-19 outbreak. The Titans have the NFL’s worst defense on third down, and the Steelers converted four third downs on the drive.
