Steelers vs. Titans: Tennessee kicks a field goal ... barely

The Titans scored first on Thursday night, but field goals don't come as easy as they used to.

It's up and it's ... DOINK! ... good.

The Tennessee Titans drew first blood in Thursday night's showdown with the Steelers. Matt Hasselbeck looked like an ageless wonder, completing 3-of-5 passes for 40 yards on a nine-play drive to open the game. Tennessee went 69 yards down the field, getting some help from an Ike Taylor pass interference call.

They had to settle for a field goal, which was hardly a gimme, as you can see above. The ball hit the upright and bounced between for three points.
