Scouting review: Don't blame Nick Westbrook-Ikhine as you look at Titans' loss to Steelers

BY BLAKE BEDDINGFIELD, special correspondent

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Steelers' defense and the Titans' defense were the strengths for each of their teams and each putting up a winning effort.

Unfortunately for the Titans, their four turnovers were their undoing after having what looked like a commanding 13-3 lead at halftime and a time of possession that ended almost doubling up Pittsburgh.

The Titans had the ball 39:08 to the Steelers 20:52.

The Titans had 22 first downs to the Steelers 12

The Titans had 318 total yards on offense to the Steelers 168.

The Titans had five fumbles and lost three to go with one interception and there was another pass that should have been caught by Steeler linebacker Devin Bush. That mistake resulted in a touchdown drive for Tennessee.

Turnovers and lack of protection for Ryan Tannehill is a problem that isn’t getting fixed.
