The NFL is set up with another great week of action on Sunday. Twelve games will be up on the board throughout October 25. One of these matchups will be between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Tennessee Titans. This game was rescheduled from Week 3 and both teams will come into this one hot. This game will kick off at around 1:00 PM Eastern time.
The Steelers have earned a record of 5-0 throughout this season so far, which has them in first place of the AFC North. Pittsburgh’s defense has led the way to this strong start, and they will look to shut down the Titans in this matchup. The Steelers are in a tightly contested AFC North and will look to keep their crown with a big win in this one. If Pittsburgh’s defense can neutralize the Titans, it will give them a good chance to earn a big win on the road.
Tennessee has posted a record of 5-0 as well so far this season, which has them in first place of the AFC South. The Titans have been playing a well-balanced game throughout this season, which has helped them earn a perfect record so far. Tennessee will look to knock off Pittsburgh on Sunday to keep their own perfect season alive. I expect the Titans to look to control this game on offense.
The Steelers and the Titans are two of the three remaining undefeated teams so far this season, which should lead to a great matchup on Sunday afternoon. These two teams have been winning in a multitude of ways this season, which could lead to a very exciting game. Both teams will come out quick as they try to control the pace in this one.
Pittsburgh is coming off a win against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6 of the season. Baker Mayfield scored a passing touchdown, but that was all the offense the Browns could pull off. James Connor, Benny Snell Jr. and Chase Claypool all had rushing touchdowns, which was not enough. Minkah Fitzpatrick returned an interception for a touchdown as the Steelers won 38-7.
The Titans faced off against the Houston Texans in their matchup last week. Deshaun Watson threw for four touchdowns as the Texans were up late. Ryan Tannehill had four passing touchdowns as well, including a touchdown to tie it with seven seconds left. Derick Henry ran for his second touchdown in overtime as Tennessee earned a 42-36 win against their division rival.
Both of these teams are coming off wins against their division rival last week. Tennessee looked like they were going to dominate early, jumping out to a 21-7 lead. The Texans were able to battle back into it but could not finish off the win. Pittsburgh was in complete control for their entire game against the Browns and will look to carry that momentum into this one.
The Steelers have Big Ben Roethlisberger as their starting Quarterback this season. Roethlisberger has thrown for 1178 yards, 11 touchdowns and 1 interception on the season so far. Last week Roethlisberger went 14-22 for 162 yards, 1 touchdown and no interceptions. Roethlisberger will look to keep up the strong start with a win in this one.
Ryan Tannehill is starting under center for the Titans. Tannehill has flourished since joining the Titans a season ago. Tannehill has opened up this season throwing for 1370 yards, 13 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Tannehill went 30-41 for 366 yards, 4 touchdowns and 1 interception last week. Tennessee will look for Tannehill to duel it out with Roethlisberger in Week 7.
These two Quarterbacks have had strong starts to the season and will look to keep up that play with a big win in this one. Neither QB has had a lot of turnovers throughout this season and they will need to keep that up in this one. If either defense can have a good performance in this one, it could help give their team a big win.
Offense vs Defense
The Steelers have been solid on offense throughout this season. Pittsburgh has scored around 156 points throughout this season, which is 4th in the NFL. The Steelers have gained 1790 yards, which is 21st in the league. Pittsburgh’s defense has allowed 94 points and 1426 yards, which are 3rd and 2nd in the NFL this season.
Tennessee’s offense has dominated throughout this season so far. The Titans have been able to score 164 points this season which is 2nd in the league. Tennessee has also gained 2116 yards this season, which is also 2nd best. The Titans have allowed 126 points and 2049 yards, which is 16th and 26th in the NFL this season.
The Steelers defense has dominated throughout this season, while the Titans have dominated on offense. This should lead to a classic battle of offense vs defense. If Pittsburgh’s defense can shut down Tennessee’s offense in this one, it should be enough to get them the win. The Steelers offense is a bit better than the Titans defense, which could give them the edge on Sunday afternoon.
The Steelers and the Titans are both coming into this game undefeated, which should lead to a great game on Sunday afternoon. Tennessee is coming off a tough overtime win against the Texans, while Pittsburgh knocked off the Browns in dominant fashion. I think the Steelers will carry over the momentum with their defense to earn a big win over the Titans on Sunday afternoon.
BetOnline has Tennessee listed as a -123 against the money line in this one. This implies that the Titans will win this game around 55.2 percent of the time. These two teams are both looking to keep their perfect seasons alive, but I think the Steelers will come out on top. Pittsburgh has the better defense and an edge on offense as well, which I think will help them earn a win on the road in this one.
