Kerry Collins gave the Steelers a scare late in Sunday’s game, but he won’t get a chance to start at quarterback this week.
Titans coach Jeff Fisher said after Tennessee’s 19-11 loss that Vince Young remains the team’s starter despite getting pulled after a woeful effort against Pittsburgh.
The stout Steelers defense didn’t give up a touchdown until there was under one minute left in the game. But the Titans pulled off a nifty onside kick up the middle and recovered the ball, giving Collins a chance to pull of a miracle.
Charlie Batch threw for only 25 yards on 11 attempts after replacing Dennis Dixon. Byron Leftwich, released on Saturday, probably has a fair chance to start for Pittsburgh on Sunday.
The Steelers have proven the last few weeks that they can win with any quarterback if their defense continues to play like this.
