The road back to a second title for the Pittsburgh Steelers just got a little easier in the AFC.

Pro Bowl defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth going to the Washington Redskins, which cost $100 million, is a huge loss for the Tennessee Titans. The Titans are one of four teams to beat Pittsburgh last year and are on the Steelers' 2009 schedule.

Tennessee finished with the best record in the AFC last year and had home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Minus Haynesworth, it's a good chance the road to the Super Bowl will not go through Tennessee next season.
