Tennessee Titans

Game Preview: Tennessee Titans vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

The Tennessee Titans will host the Pittsburgh Steelers at LP Field on November 17 for a Monday Night Football showdown that will pit a rookie quarterback against a seasoned veteran. Titans QB Zach Mettenberger will only be making his third career start in Monday’s game, while Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger will be playing with over ten seasons of experience behind him. The Tennessee Titans will be hoping to improve their 2-7 record and break out of a three-game losing streak that most recently saw them fall to the Baltimore Ravens 21-7. On the other hand, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be looking to build on their 6-4 record and erase the memory of last Sunday’s ugly 20-13 loss to the New York Jets. Although the Steelers appear to have every advantage on paper, there are several factors that could offer the Titans a competitive edge in the upcoming game.

First, it should be noted that the Titans have won their last four Monday Night Football games. Along with their history of Monday Night Football wins, the Titans will also have the home field advantage over a team that has a 2-3 record for road games this season. And while Mettenberger lacks Roethlisberger’s experience, the rookie Titans quarterback has actually been favorably compared to the Steelers quarterback when it comes to his arm strength and his ability to deliver accurate throws.

Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt, who previously coached Roethlisberger while he was serving as Pittsburgh’s offensive coordinator from 2004 to 2006, may also be the perfect coach for capitalizing on Mettenberger’s strengths and exploiting Roethlisberger’s weaknesses in the upcoming game. In a recent press conference, Whisenhunt recalled several examples from his career when underdog teams beat the odds and he noted that football was about fundamental skills, rather than records. “It’s really about catching the ball, not fumbling and not turning it over,” observed Whisenhunt. “Just executing your plays.” Show your support for the Tennessee Titans with a discount Titans PSL from PSL Source!
