With the Steelers beating the Titans, 27-24, on Sunday coupled with the Seahawks losing to the Cardinals on Sunday Night Football in overtime, 37-34, the Steelers are now the only undefeated team remaining in the NFL at 6-0.
It's the second-best start for the Steelers in franchise history and the mark they'll have to reach to break the record would be 8-0, as the 1978 team started off 7-0. The Steelers have an AFC North showdown against the 5-1 Ravens in Baltimore next Sunday.
"We realize that we've got AFC North ball next week on the road," Mike Tomlin said in his post-game interview. "We're going to a group that has seven days advantage on us, so there's a lot for us to be urgent about. We won't spend a lot of time celebrating this or appreciating this because it's just more work that lies ahead, but we like that element of the journey and we're excited about assessing what's transpired, hopefully making necessary improvements and positioning ourselves for next week's challenge."
Ben Roethlisberger echoed Tomlin's statement as they don't have much time to enjoy this win over Tennessee because they have a big challenge next Sunday against a division foe in the Ravens.
"We feel we have a really good football team, right?" Roethlisberger said after the game. "We feel that it could be very special and we're happy with where we are right now, but that's going to be a short-lived happiness because we know what's coming up next."
