The good thing once you get past the halfway mark in the NFL, is that now you have  a pretty good idea of what each team is. The Tennessee Titans are obviously no exception to this rule.

Through Week 10, the Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers have played 5 common opponents: The Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cincinnati Bengals, and the Indianapolis Colts.

Let’s look at how the Titans and Steelers fared against those opponents:

What does that mean?

Well, it means that in games where the Titans and Steelers played the same teams, the Titans just preformed better on average. The Steelers had big days against the Ravens and Bengals, but were smoked by the Jaguars.

On the other hand, the Titans blew out the Colts late and handled Jacksonville all game long.

Is this to say that the Titans are the better team? Not necessarily, however they did outpace the Steelers in wins and point differential in those contests. On a short week maybe that level of talent and play is enough to give Titans players and fans some confidence heading into this game.
