The last two undefeated teams in the AFC are set to face off in Week 7 when our Pittsburgh Steelers travel to Tennessee to take on the Titans.

I have to say I am really excited about this matchup. This is another case of the Steelers just matching up incredibly well against their opponents and it goes back to how balanced this team is. Tennessee is undefeated for a reason. They have the league-leading rusher, Derrick Henry, who has pulverized defenses in the first quarter of the season. Meanwhile, the 2019 comeback player of the year, Ryan Tannehill, has shown the ability to utilize his other weapons to keep the games manageable enough to continue to be able to run the ball.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are still more balanced on offense. James Conner has been averaging 4.9 yards per carry while Ben Roethlisberger has thrown 11 touchdowns already on the season compared to just 1 interception. This offense will find whatever is working against the defense they are facing that week and exploit it. Every wide receiver is getting chances week by week and even Eric Ebron during an up and down season came through in the game against Houston.

Defensively, these teams are light years apart. Tennessee has a scrappy secondary. Yet, their run defense leaves a lot to be desired. The run defense for the Black and Gold has been as good as it gets in the NFL this year. I just don’t see how Tennessee wins this game. It is really just a bad matchup for them.

Here are three reasons why the Pittsburgh Steelers will defeat the Tennessee Titans in Week 7:
