Gostkowski misses game-tying kick in final seconds of Titans-Steelers originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Sunday's Week 7 game vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers marked another rough day for Stephen Gostkowski in a Tennessee Titans uniform.
After trailing by 17, the Titans stormed back in the second half to make it 27-24 with a chance to tie it and force overtime. Gostkowski lined up for a 45-yard field goal with 19 seconds left in the 4th quarter, but the former New England Patriots kicker missed wide right.
Predictably, Twitter was filled with reactions to Gostkowski's latest mishap:

Gostkowski 5-of-11 inside 50? That just ain’t gonna get it done, folks.

Stephen Gostkowski missed a 45-yd attempt and that's the ball game. Tough way for the #Titans to lose. WOW.

Gostkowski also made headlines for all the wrong reasons back in Week 1 when he went 1-for-4 on field goals and 1-for-2 on extra points. Last week vs. the Houston Texans was a week to forget as well, as the 36-year-old missed both of his field goal attempts.
The loss marks the Titans' first of the season as they move to 5-1. The Steelers remain undefeated at 6-0.
