It was a painful one in Nissan Stadium as Stephen Gostkowski’s 45-yard field goal attempt went wide right in what looked to be a situation that would surely send a now-defeated Tennessee Titans team into overtime.
Instead, they fell 27-24 to the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers, who remain the only unblemished team left in the AFC. Pittsburgh also has an early grip on the No. 1 seed in the conference.
Should Mike Vrabel have chosen to go for it on this one? What does the loss tell us about this team as a whole?
It’s impossible for everyone to agree on one answer to either of those questions, but there were certainly some opinions to be had after the loss.
Here’s a look at what Twitter had to say after the Titans’ disappointing defeat at the hands of the Steelers.

i’d rather have you kick the field goal at this point. ACL or not

Don’t know that we really learned anything about the #Titans in this one. Right now, they’re a gritty team with a talented offense and a defense that’s a liability.

#Titans' Vrabel: Confident that Gostkowski will make the next one.

Gostkowski has been perfect from 50+
Not so much from 49 and less… He misses 45 yarder and it costs the #Titans the game.

Current status: in a toxic relationship with the Tennessee #Titans

#Titans loss hurts. Gostkowski miss is frustrating. But he hit a 51-yarder in this game and has made three game winners this year. This is a loss I can live with. Secondary's first half play was way worse than anything Gostkowski did. #TENvsPIT

Yea we’re still undefeated but that was an embarrassing win. Steelers had a 17 point lead and it came down to a missed FG smh. #TENvsPIT.
