It's Halftime: What's Happened so Far in Titans-Steelers



NASHVILLE, Tenn. --** The Titans trail the Steelers 16-7 at halftime here at Heinz Field.

A look at what's happened so far:

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota completed 11-of-15 passes for 107 yards, with two interceptions, in the first half. He scored on a touchdown run.

The Titans got off to a bad a start on both sides of the football.

The Steelers scored a touchdown on their first possession on a 41-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to Antonio Brown, which capped a six-play, 75-yard drive.

When the Titans got the ball, Mariota sailed a ball over the head of receiver Rishard Matthews, and the Steelers cashed it in for three points to take a 10-0 lead barely five minutes into the contest.

But the Titans fought back, as Mariota engineered an 11-play, 68-yard touchdown drive he capped off with a seven-yard run to cut the lead to 10-7. Mariota connected with Matthews on a pair of completions, and running back Derrick Henry produced a nice 13-yard run. Rookie Corey Davis also made a nice sideline grab. Mariota showed some speed and some spunk with his run, and head-first dive into the end zone.

After a nice drive, the Titans had a chance to tie the game on a 48-yard field goal by kicker Ryan Succop, but it was blocked by Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt.

After a slow start, the Titans settled down on defense, and got some stops at critical times.

Still, the Steelers got more points before halftime after picking off Mariota for a second time. Steelers cornerback Coty Sensabaugh intercepted Mariota and returned it to the Tennessee 20. Kicker Chris Boswell's second field goal of the night made it 13-7 with 1:37 left before halftime.

Another Boswell field goal, this one from 50 yards, made it 16-7 at the half.
