Steelers vs. Titans: Game Preview, Odds, Injuries
By Ravi Konjeti
Game preview of the Steelers and Titans matchup.
The Tennessee Titans snuck out of a Week 6 matchup against the Houston Texans with a victory and now they sit tied atop the AFC standings.
This week, Tennessee will face the team situated next to them at the top in the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers. The winner leaves with complete control of the AFC and they will play on the Titans home turf at Nissan Stadium in Nashville at 12:00 P.M. CT on CBS.
The Steelers are coming off of an impressive game against the previously 4-1 Cleveland Browns by winning 38-7 and completely limiting one of the best rushing offenses in the league.
This game was originally scheduled to be played in Week 4, however, due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the Titans franchise, the game was pushed back until week 7. The additional time helped both teams recover some injured players, particularly the Titans who had placed a significant portion of their starting roster on the COVID-19 List.
With all eyes watching this premier matchup, both teams will look to get a big step in the race for the only bye-week for the playoffs. This is by far the toughest matchup on the schedule so far in the season for both teams and will tell us a lot about how each team stacks up against the NFL elite teams.
