Pittsburgh Steelers Football

Steelers and Titans Both On a Roll

The Tennessee Titans and the Pittsburgh Steelers meet on Thursday Night Football at Heinz Field. NBC Sports has the telecast and kick-off is scheduled for 8:25 pm EST.

The Steelers and Titans are both on Four-game winning streaks going into tonights nationally telecast game.

Oddsmakers opened the Steelers as -7-point favorites versus the Titans, while the game’s total opened at 43.5. The line has held steady, but the total is up to 44.5.

Pittsburgh has built a three-game lead over the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC North. They aims for a fourth consecutive playoff appearance. The Steelers are 2-1 at home this season.

Ben Roethlisberger has 2,298 yards, 12 TDs and 10 INTs on the season. He could climb even higher up the all-time record books with a strong performance. The QB ranks No. 9 in NFL history with 49,112 passing yards. He needs 214 yards to pass Warren Moon (49,325 yards) for No. 8 on the list.

Running back Le’Veon Bell has 1,091 yards from scrimmage (840 rushing, 251 receiving). He leads the NFL entering Week 11. Pro Bowl wide receiver Antonio Brown has 60 receptions, 882 yards, and three TDs.

JuJu Smith-Schuster has 29 receptions, 521 yards, and five TDs. He has the ability to find the end zone on any given play. Smith-Schuster has caught a touchdown pass in each of his last three games and will try to stretch it to four on Thursday.

Titans in Battle with Jags in AFC South

Tennessee is even with the Jacksonville Jaguars atop the AFC South. A road victory would significantly boost the Titans’ chances of snapping an eight-season playoff drought. Tennessee is 2-2 on the road this season as it prepares for a game on three days’ rest.

A slew of injuries, along with a condensed practice schedule, will add to Tennessee’s challenge. Marcus Mariota is battling ankle and shoulder injuries. He is expected to play through the pain. The third-year leader never has faced the Steelers.

If Mariota is limited, the Titans could lean on a two-headed rushing attack. The tandem features DeMarco Murray with 433 yards and four TDs. Derrick Henry chips in 409 yards with three TDs. Wideout Rishard Matthews has 36 receptions, 513 yards, and two TDs. He offers the most reliable option downfield in the passing game.
