The game wasn't originally supposed to be played this week, but now that it's here, the Pittsburgh Steelers-Tennessee Titans date in Nashville shapes up as a marquee matchup.

 

Both teams are 5-0, the Steelers for the first time since 1978 and Tennessee for the first time since a 10-0 start in 2008. It's just the eighth time in NFL history undefeated teams have met this far into a season.

 

The game would have been played Oct. 4, but an outbreak of COVID-19 in the Titans organization forced a postponement -- and for Tennessee a bizarre revamped schedule that included a Tuesday game.

 

Titans linebacker Rashaan Evans is impressed with how his team remained unscathed with things so unsettled.

 

"These five weeks have probably been the craziest, the wildest situation we've ever been in before," Evans said. "You've got to give it up to the guys in this (locker) room. I don't think a lot of guys would have been able to do what we have done. I think it proved how good a focus we have."

 

A focus that now shifts to facing a fellow unbeaten team -- and one that has drawn attention for what it's doing on the field, as opposed to Tennessee, which also has been in the spotlight for its virus outbreak.

 

Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill said his team isn't concerned with redemption in the wake of the outbreak; finding a way to beat Pittsburgh is enough.

 

"We don't need a whole lot of other motivation," Tannehill said.

 

Tennessee coach Mike Vrabel echoed that.

 

"Every week is a huge challenge, this one unbelievably so," Vrabel said.

 

The Steelers feel the same way about the Titans and about trying to remain unbeaten.

 

"It's up to us to keep getting better," Pittsburgh defensive tackle Cam Heyward said.

 

Heyward and the Steelers will be facing a Tennessee offense that broke loose in its last game, a 42-36 overtime win against Houston. The Titans set a club record with 601 yards of offense, including 212 yards rushing and two touchdowns by Derrick Henry, who was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week.

 

The Steelers, ranked second in the NFL yielding 285.2 yards a game, could be a lot stingier.

 

"What I'm looking at is pretty special," Tannehill said of Pittsburgh's defense. "They have an incredible front. They do a great job of moving up front, being disruptive, getting penetration in the run and pass game. Pair that with a secondary that can make plays as well."

 

On the flip side, the Steelers' offense has not exactly been rolling -- it ranks 21st overall, 24th in passing -- but the results have still been there.

 

Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said it's a matter of having balance over gaudy numbers.

 

"That is what we want (it) to be," he said.

 

Each team lost a starter to a season-ending knee injury in its last game, Tennessee left tackle Taylor Lewan against the Texans and Pittsburgh linebacker Devin Bush in a 38-7 win against Cleveland.

 

For Pittsburgh, cornerback Mike Hilton (shoulder), center Maurkice Pouncey (foot) and receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) were held out of practice Wednesday but could return to practice later in the week. Receiver Diontae Johnson (back) was a full participant Wednesday and guard David DeCastro (abdominal injury) practiced on a limited basis after both missed the Browns game.

 

For Tennessee, linebacker Jadeveon Clowney (knee) did not practice Wednesday, while all players have been cleared from the COVID-19 list.

How Our Computer Picks System Works

Our software doesn't simulate sports results like our competitors, we track real bets.

We have exclusive access to a database with 10,000+ real bettors. Our software tracks all of these players in real-time.

Our proprietary algorithms then rank every handicapper in the database based on how well they perform by sport and bet type.

When our system identifies multiple sharps betting on the same outcome, our software automatically publishes the AI pick above.

We have zero control on the picks released by our software. It's simply using algorithms to generate the sharpest sports picks with the most value (+EV).

Why Are There No Computer Picks?

Our AI system generates quality picks with a proven return on investment (ROI).

We believe in quality over quantity.

Some days, there may be zero AI picks, as our algorithms haven't generated any picks with enough value to be released .

We recommend not looking at the volume of bets released by our AI software, but look at the results and profits generated.

If there are no computer picks listed here, we still have daily sports picks from the pros.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Tennessee Titans

Ben Roethlisberger passed for 268 yards and two touchdowns as the Pittsburgh Steelers rode a big first half to a 27-24 win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday in Nashville.

The Steelers built a 20-point lead in the third quarter, then held on as Stephen Gostkowski missed wide right on a potential tying 45-yard field goal with 19 seconds left.

Pittsburgh (6-0) not only remained unbeaten but also knocked the Titans (5-1) from the ranks of the undefeated.

Roethlisberger was 32 of 49 with three interceptions and two touchdown passes to Diontae Johnson. Benny Snell added a touchdown run.

Ryan Tannehill completed 18 of 30 passes for 220 yards for Tennessee, with scoring passes to Corey Davis and A.J. Brown, who had 153 receiving yards. Derrick Henry ran for 75 yards and a touchdown.

The Steelers ate up 9:18 on the game's first possession, moving 75 yards in 16 plays and taking a 7-0 lead on Roethlisberger's 11-yard toss to Johnson, who beat coverage by cornerback Tye Smith.

Next time up, Pittsburgh moved 61 yards in 13 plays and went ahead 14-0 on Snell's 1-yard sweep.

The Titans put together a 12-play, 75-yard drive and pulled to within 14-7 in the second quarter on Tannehill's 4-yard scoring pass to Davis, who is just off the COVID-19 list.

The Steelers answered with Chris Boswell's 38-yard field goal for a 17-7 lead.

The Titans offense faltered, and Ray-Ray McCloud returned the resulting punt 57 yards to the Tennessee 17 with 1:35 left in the half. That was enough time for Roethlisberger and Johnson to hook up again, with Johnson spinning away from coverage at the 5 to polish off a 9-yard touchdown play for a 24-7 halftime score.

Boswell tacked on a 30-yarder in the third quarter for a 27-7 advantage.

Brown was untouched as he turned Tannehill's short pass into a 73-yard scoring play to close it to 27-14.

Jayon Brown's interception of a Roethlisberger pass set up Gostkowski's 51-yard field goal to cut it to 27-17 heading into the fourth quarter.

Henry went airborne for a 1-yard touchdown to make it 27-24 with 10:13 left in regulation.
