The Titans are poised to give the Steelers everything they have this week, and here are the four reasons to be concerned about their matchup

While the dismantling of the Browns was a pleasant result of week six, the Steelers face a significantly tougher task this week against the Titans. Tasked with stopping arguably the best running back in the league as well as a passing offense that has been reborn. While the Titans defense isn’t elite, they have done more than enough to stop opposing offenses from moving the ball well.

To be frank, there are a plethora of reasons to be concerned about this week seven matchup. While the Steelers are certainly a good team, they will be facing off with an equally talented Titans unit. If the Steelers show even a glimpse of weakness, the team could unravel and be facing their first loss of the season. Don’t sleep on the Titans, as they are a far better team than any that the Steelers have faced and should be a true challenge for this defense.

All of this said, narrowing the list down to four primary concerns wasn’t easy. There are a lot of routes that can lead to disappointment and failure this Sunday. The Steelers can’t let their guard down, as the Titans can rollover the Steelers with a top offensive unit. With all of this said, here are the four biggest causes for concern in the Steelers week seven matchup against the Titans.
