The Pittsburgh Steelers will play tonight on Thursday Night Football on the NFL Network against the Tennessee Titans. The game will be played in Tennessee at LP Field with an 8:20 PM kickoff time. The Steelers come into the game with a 2-2 record and are coming off a hard-fought victory over the Eagles last week. Tennessee, on the other hand, comes into the game with just one win this year. That victory came in week 3 against Detroit at home.
Pittsburgh will be a bit banged up coming into Thursday’s game and will be without Troy Palomalu who re-injured his calf last week. Palomalu missed action weeks earlier with that same calf injury and was unable to make it through the game against the Eagles without having further difficulties. Despite this huge loss, the Steelers were able to put together a final drive that lasted about 5 minutes and marched down the field to set up a game-winning field goal that was made as time expired.
Tennessee has seen some glimpses of hope in their team, but has failed to make anything happen so far this season. Chris Johnson has not been the same since his holdout 2 seasons ago and the team’s defense has been poor. The Titans have seen some glimpses from CJ who must get back to his 2010 production to try and get this team some wins. The Titans have played a very tough schedule this year, however, and Pittsburgh is actually one of the easier games they have had to this point.
