The Titans have to be more aggressive than the Eagles in their pursuit of Big Ben.

The Pittsburgh Steelers came out of the bye week with a tough Philadelphia Eagles squad awaiting them. The Steelers took advantage of the Eagles red zone mishaps and their inability to pressure Ben Roethlisberger on the final drive. In the end Mike Tomlin’s crew pulled out a 16-14 win on a 34-yard field goal by Shaun Suisham as time expired.

Things have been less than thrilling for the 1-4 Tennessee Titans who have allowed twice as many points as they have scored. With a non-existent ground game it has been open season on Titans quarterback Jake Locker who has had more than his share visits with the team physician.
