Mike Vrabel vs Mike Tomlin
The Tennessee Titans, while experiencing a rocky season, showed some hope in their recent match against the Atlanta Falcons. Though they currently stand with an overall record of 3-4 and struggle in passing gameplay – ranking near the bottom in terms of passing efficiency – their recent game against Atlanta demonstrated an improved offensive strategy that enabled them to secure an important 28-23 victory against them.
Dominant Performances Shine Bright
Rookie quarterback Will Levis made an immediate impactful statement against Tennessee, accounting for 238 yards and four touchdowns while DeAndre Hopkins caught three of Levis’ passes for 128 receiving yards – setting an all-time game receiving yardage record! Moreover, Derrick Henry added 101 rushing yards on 22 carries to help balance out Tennessee’s overall offensive strategy.
Pittsburgh Steelers Struggle to Find Their Footing
Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Steelers have also encountered difficulties, falling into a three-way tie for second place in the AFC North Division with four wins out of six matches played so far this season. While boasting a 4-3 record overall and ranking second worst in total offense (only behind Jacksonville Jaguars in this regard), their offense has struggled mightily this season averaging 16.1 points per contest – a trend further highlighted in their 20-10 loss at Jacksonville.
Setbacks and Glimpses of Hope
The Steelers’ recent loss against Jacksonville was compounded by Kenny Pickett‘s early departure due to a rib injury incurred early in the first half. Despite this setback, backup Mitch Trubisky showed his ability by connecting with George Pickens for an important 22-yard touchdown pass and providing some hope to their performance; unfortunately, this effort fell short against Jacksonville’s determined defense, prompting strategic evaluation and offensive consolidation as part of a more holistic solution.
NFL Latest Odds: PIT -3 ; O/U 36
Minkah Fitzpatrick missed their previous loss due to a hamstring injury; however, he is expected to make a comeback for their next game against San Francisco. While Will Levis may make an impressionful debut during his rookie campaign, Pittsburgh’s formidable pass rush may force errors out of him and help secure their victory and cover any spread. Thus it seems likely that Pittsburgh will win and cover any spread.
