Pittsburgh Steelers 24, Tennessee Titans 17
The rivalry between these two teams makes for an interesting Week 1 matchup. When the Titans and Steelers met in 2012, the Titans barely pulled off the victory. They’ll look to build off of that.
This season, I think Pittsburgh pulls off the win against our beloved Titans. The Steelers have a huge home-field advantage in Week 1. That gives them a slight advantage. There are still a lot of questions around both of these teams. In the end, if Tennessee can’t stop Ben Roethlisberger, then it will be a long night on defense.
Tennessee has a lot to prove and a win would be huge for this team. It’ll be close. Based solely on home-field advantage and questionable defense, I give the very close nod to the Steelers.
I hope I am wrong.
