NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The highly anticipated showdown between the AFC’s last undefeated teams turned into a Pittsburgh beatdown early and a near Tennessee comeback late.

Ben Roethlisberger threw two touchdown passes to Diontae Johnson, and the Steelers remained perfect by holding off Tennessee 27-24 Sunday in a game originally scheduled for Oct. 4 and rescheduled by the Titans with the NFL’s first COVID-19 outbreak during the season.

Benny Snell scored his second touchdown in two weeks for Pittsburgh in the first half.

Stephen Gostkowski, who made a 51-yarder earlier in Tennessee’s comeback try, missed a 45-yarder wide right with 14 seconds left that sent the Steelers running around in celebration.
