NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Antonio Brown(notes) scored on an 89-yard kickoff return to open the game, and the Pittsburgh Steelers forced seven turnovers in defeating the Tennessee Titans 19-11 Sunday.

Dennis Dixon(notes) hurt his left knee and was replaced by Charlie Batch(notes), but the Steelers (2-0) swarmed the Titans (1-1) and came up with four sacks and forced the most turnovers by Tennessee since 2000.

The Titans even tried pulling Vince Young(notes) after his third turnover. Kerry Collins(notes) was intercepted to end his first series.

Pittsburgh also snapped Chris Johnson's 100-yard rushing streak at 12 straight. The NFL's rushing champ had a chance to move a game away from the league record of 14 held by Barry Sanders, but he finished with just 16 carries for 34 yards.

James Harrison(notes) had three sacks, forced a fumble and recovered another.
