At their peak, the Pittsburgh Steelers have shown off an offence so explosive its looked capable of making them one of the NFLs elite teams. At their worst, theyve played beneath the low level of some pretty dreadful competition. A week after laying their latest egg against one of the NFLs worst teams, the Steelers get a crack at another one Monday night as they visit the Tennessee Titans. You can follow all the action LIVE on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4 and TSN5 with coverage beginning at 8:15pm et/5:15pm pt. Pittsburgh (6-4) had its best rushing day in eight years with 264 yards in a 37-19 win at Carolina in Week 3, then lost at home to Tampa Bay the following Sunday in a result that remains the Buccaneers lone victory. Ben Roethlisberger took his turn as the star in wins over Indianapolis and Baltimore to cap the Steelers 3-0 midseason homestand, throwing six touchdown passes in back-to-back weeks as Pittsburgh put up 94 points, but once again the shelf life on Pittsburghs positivity was short. The Steelers fell behind 17-0 after one quarter last Sunday against the Jets, and Roethlisbergers lone TD pass came with just 1:16 left in a 20-13 loss to a New York team that was 1-8 coming in. Its the NFL, if you dont show up ready to play your type of game, youre going to lose, wide receiver Lance Moore said. Our last game was a perfect example of that. Were hot. We came in high and mighty and a team came in and played better than us. Struggling against some of the leagues lightweights has been a somewhat alarming trend since Mike Tomlins arrival in 2007, particularly away from home. Pittsburgh has played nine road games in the second half of its schedule against teams with a sub-.300 winning percentage, and the Jets loss was its sixth in those contests. The Steelers have a minus-15 turnover differential in those games. The ability is there, its just about going out and doing it, defensive end Cam Heyward told the teams official website. We have to have our focus and mindset on the Titans this week. We cant forget what happened, but we have to move past it. We have to move in the right direction and clean up the stuff that put us in trouble this past week. Pittsburghs early hole against the Jets continued another noteworthy road trend. Since the start of last season, the Steelers have been outscored 88-26 in the first quarter away from Heinz Field. Theyve held an 85-56 edge in the first 15 minutes at home. Tomlins team has allowed an NFL-high 36 points on its opponents first offensive possession, but the Titans (2-7) have only come away with one field goal the first time theyve had the ball. Tennessee looked great in the first quarter last Sunday at Baltimore before reverting back to the form thats seen it score the leagues fewest points. The Titans had 142 yards and a 7-0 lead after 15 minutes but were held to 68 yards on 30 plays the rest of the way in a 21-7 loss. Early in the first half we did a lot of good things to kind of counteract their guys, rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger said. We just got to continue to ... play like that for 60 minutes. Mettenberger hasnt been bad in his first two starts, completing 63.2 percent of his passes with three TDs and two interceptions, but hell want to focus on getting the ball out sooner against Pittsburgh. Baltimore switched to primarily zone coverage after its banged-up secondary struggled in man, and Mettenberger was sacked five times over the final three quarters while struggling with his reads. You try to have an internal clock, that lets you know when its time, but with the defensive linemen that they have, the clock goes a lot faster, Mettenberger said. I know I need to play a lot smarter. This is a quarterback driven league and I have to play better. Mettenbergers task could be tougher without tight end Delanie Walker, who leads the team with 512 receiving yards but is questionable after being carted off against the Ravens with a concussion. Walker was cleared to practice this past week, but must be checked by an independent neurologist before he can play. The Steelers have eight sacks in two games this month but have allowed four of the five QBs theyve faced on the road to post a passer rating of at least 109.3, though the outlier also happened to be a rookie from the AFC South. Pittsburgh pressured Blake Bortles into a pair of interceptions in a Week 5 win at Jacksonville, improving to 18-2 against rookie signal-callers since Dick LeBeau returned as defensive coordinator in 2004. Opening more holes in the running game could be just as significant in boosting that record as confusing Mettenberger. The Steelers have run for just 91 yards on 42 carries in their past two games, and havent scored on the ground since Week 3. LeVeon Bell and LeGarrette Blount might find the Titans defence slightly more accommodating. Tennessee has allowed an AFC-worst 4.53 yards per carry since October, including 363 yards and four touchdowns in its last two losses. The Steelers were held to 31 yards on 15 carries as Bell missed a 16-9 Week 1 loss to the Titans last season. Wholesale Cheap Shoes Canada . According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, it doesnt appear the offer was warmly received by the team. Blue Jackets director of hockey operations John Davidson and general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said on Wednesday the team has made offers of $6 million for two years, $32 million for six and $46 million over eight years but each one was refused by the restricted free agent centre and agent Kurt Overhardt.

In these moments, there is nowhere Jayson Werth would rather be than walking to the plate with bat in hand. Werth hit a game-winning RBI double in the bottom of the ninth after the Brewers tied it in the top of the inning and the Washington Nationals beat Milwaukee 5-4 on Sunday afternoon. Washingtons bullpen tossed five scoreless innings in relief of Gio Gonzalez until Rickie Weeks RBI single in the ninth off closer Rafael Soriano (1-1), who earned the win despite blowing his third save in 25 chances. Anthony Rendon reached on a fielders choice against Rob Wooten (1-4) with two outs in the ninth. Enter Werth. "Thats what its all about, right? Its why we do this," Werth said of the pressure-packed moment. "If you find yourself in that situation and you dont want to be there, I think youre in the wrong line of work." Taking advantage of a 3-1 count, the right fielder drilled the pitch into the left field corner, scoring Rendon from first. "Im still huffing and puffing," Rendon said. Washington took two of three in the series between teams that entered Sunday as division leaders. The Nationals have won four of five overall. Ryan Zimmerman had two hits, including a two-run homer, for the Nationals. The Brewers have lost 13 of 16. Tied with St. Louis entering Sunday, Milwaukee has led or held a share of first place of the NL Central every day since April 5. Pinch-hitter Scooter Gennett singled with one out against Soriano in the ninth, took second on Carlos Gomezs walk and scored on Weeks base hit. The Brewers were 1 of 8 with runners in scoring position before Weeks at-bat. Staked to a 3-1 lead, Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo allowed four runs and eight hits over six innings. Gallardo has not won since June 19 and is 0-2 with 7.33 ERA in his last four starts. "You always want to start on a good mode coming out of the break. This was a tough gamme," Gallardo said.dddddddddddd "Youve got to forget about it. Were going home." Gonzalez allowed three runs on four hits with four walks and five strikeouts on 88 pitches over 3 1-3 innings. He left in the fourth with a runner at third and trailing 2-1. Gomez RBI groundout against Craig Stammen gave the Brewers 3-1 lead. Khris Davis and Jonathan Lucroy also drove in runs for Milwaukee. Gonzalez had his start pushed back one day after flight issues caused a delay in his return to Washington following the All-Star break. "Nine days off. It didnt help missing bullpen (session) and doing all that (work)," Gonzalez said. "Obviously my command and fastball location wasnt where I wanted it to be." Stammen retired all eight batters he faced after replacing Gonzalez. Zimmermans opposite field homer tied the game at 3-3. Jose Lobaton scored later in the inning with two outs on Gallardos wild pitch. Milwaukee loaded the bases with out in the second inning due in part to Zimmermans throwing error. Gonzalez escaped the jam with back-to-back strikeouts. The errant toss was the first error in 13 games for Zimmerman, who has battled right shoulder injuries, since returning to third base on June 30. The Nationals scored first on Ian Desmonds RBI hit in the second. They celebrated last on Werths clutch hit. "Any time you get a walk-off win its big for team morale," Stammen said. "Hopefully it will send us on a nice little winning streak."
