 PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Steelers insist it's not time to panic after Thursday night's 26-23 loss to Tennessee.
Maybe, but the 2-3 Steelers need to turn it around quickly. Their third straight road defeat to open the season followed a similar pattern to the first two. Pittsburgh took an early lead then let an aging opposing quarterback lead an unlikely comeback against a suddenly vulnerable Steelers' defense.
Pittsburgh has 10 days off to get ready for the Cincinnati Bengals, and will need every second of downtime to heal. A handful of starters left Thursday night's game due to injury, including center Maurkice Pouncey, running Isaac Redman and right tackle Marcus Gilbert.
Left tackle Max Starks says the team has been in a deeper hole before and climbed out and he expects Pittsburgh to do it again over the final 11 games.
