The Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping to put a few lackluster performances in the rearview mirror when they meet Thursday’Night with the Tennessee Titans at Heinz Field to kick off NFL Week 11 actionPlayers have become more and more vocal about disliking Thursday Night Football games and these 2 teams have some important quarterback considerations with the quick turnaround. Pittsburgh is favored by 7 with a total of 44

The Titans knocked off the Bengals last week to improve to 6-3 straight up and 3-5-1 ATS, The Titans have won 4 straight, but have only covered in 1 of those games. The Titans are remarkably average on offense. They only have 5.2 yards per play this season, which is a little bit below the league average at 5.3. Tennessee’s passing attack hasn’t gotten much done. The Titans rank 25th in adjusted net yards per pass attempt, but make up for it by being one of the better rushing teams in the NFL with 4.4 yards per carry. Marcus Mariota has completed 62.1 % of his throws, but only has a 7/6 TD/INT ratio. The Titans have had more chunk plays than the opposition through the air, but only have 8 passing touchdowns on the season. Getting Delanie Walker back in the mix last week was big,, and the threat of Corey Davis should start to open up the field. Tennessee, surprisingly, has thrown the ball 46 more times than it has ran the ball, despite having two solid backs in DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry. Murray has 4 yards per carry and Henry has 4.4 yards per pop. Mariota’s legs have extended some plays with 5.7 yards per carry on 32 attempts. Tennessee ran 90 offensive plays and managed just 24 points and 416 yards on the Bengals last week while holding the ball for over 40 minutes of the game.

The Steelers are 7-2 straight up and 5-4 ATS on the season. They are favored for the 9th time in 10 games and have won 4 straight. The Steelers have failed to cover in 2 of their 3 favorite roles laying more than a touchdown this season, The Steelers are a hard team to figure out. 4 weeks ago, people were looking at the Steelers as the AFC favorite following their win over Kansas City at Arrowhead Stadium. The Steelers sit at 7-2 now , with un- impressive wins in their previous 3 games,. Pittsburgh narrowly knocked off the Colts with a 20-17 win this past week and gave up 482 yards to the Lions the week before.The Steelers are +0.7 yards per play this season, so they fit the bill of a team with a good record, but the last couple of weeks have been a struggle.There have to be worries about Ben Roethlisberger, who has already expressed his displeasure about playing on a Thursday. Roethlisberger, who has talked about retirement, has a 61.1 % completion rate with a 12/10 TD/INT ratio. Le’Veon Bell only has 3.8 yards per carry and the Steelers only have 3.6 yards per carry as a team, including just 3 rushes of 20 or more yards. The emergence of JuJu Smith-Schuster as a big complement to Antonio Brown has been the best thing to happen to the Steelers over the last few weeks. That will test a Tennessee secondary that hasn’t faced too many elite wideouts this season. With a lot of attention going to Brown, Smith-Schuster’s contributions have included more touchdowns and more big plays. The Steelers are basically in the middle of the pack with 5.5 yards per play, which is not what we are used to seeing.

Predictions:     Tennessee Titans +7
Grab a reasonably juiced 7 wherever you can find one. The Steelers aren’t thrilled about playing on Thursday with some of their older players. With a 3-game cushion in the AFC North, we may not get the best of efforts from the Steelers. Also, Tennessee defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau was on the Pittsburgh staff as the defensive coordinator from 2004-14, so he knows a few things about the personnel on this roster and about the coaching plans of Mike Tomlin and Todd Haley. Tennessee should be plenty prepared here, even with the short week…
