Diontae Johnson’s first touchdown since 2021 lifts Steelers over Titans

For the first time since Week 17 of the 2021 season, when Ben Roethlisberger was still quarterbacking the team, Diontae Johnson found the end zone. And it couldn’t have come at a better time. 

Johnson’s three-yard catch put the Pittsburgh Steelers over the Tennessee Titans, 20-16, to move ot 5-3 on the season in what was a thriller down the stretch. 

Johnson had 119 receptions before that 120th finally got him in the colored paint, but he’s remained patient and had faith he would score again. Quarterback Kenny Pickett found Johnson earlier in the 11-play, 92-yard drive on a big third-and-six conversion for 32 yards to get into Titans territory. 

As for the Titans, they will head to Tampa Bay to take on Baker Mayfield and the Buccaneers.
