NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Pittsburgh Steelers have mixed it up in the second half and caught the Tennessee Titans off-guard.

The Steelers have stuck with the no-huddle offense in the third quarter and drove down the field for a 62-yard touchdown drive to take a 14-10 lead. Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw a 21-yard strike to receiver Hines Ward for the go-ahead score.

Pittsburgh used the no huddle and was successful during its 2-minute drive to end the first half. It resulted in a missed field goal, but the team drove down the field against the Titans.

The Steelers did the same in the third quarter with the no-huddle. It will be interesting to see if Pittsburgh keeps it as a wrinkle, as it has most of the season, or sticks to it the rest of the second half.
