Kendall Wright couldn’t hold on to this pass, but the Tennessee Titans held on for a 26-23 victory over Keenan Lewis and the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night in Nashville, Tenn.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Titans have bought themselves a little breathing room with a much-needed victory, and the Pittsburgh Steelers still can’t win away from Heinz Field.

Rob Bironas kicked his fourth field goal, a 40-yarder as time expired, and the Titans beat the 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 minutes, 19 seconds 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 consecutive road game this season and for the fifth time in six games dating to last season, despite Ben Roethlisberger throwing for 363 yards and becoming the Steelers’ career passing leader, passing Terry Bradshaw.

Chris Johnson ran for 91 yards on 19 carries, and Hasselbeck finished with 290 yards passing.
