Steelers vs. Titans: Who the experts are taking in week 15
The Steelers are fighting for their playoff lives as they get ready to host the Tennessee Titans at Heinz Field.
The Pittsburgh Steelers look to upset the AFC South division leader, the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. It is going to be a tough challenge after a devastating loss to the Minnesota Vikings last Thursday. They were able to dig themselves out of a massive hole only to be let down again.
It was a tough game that saw Pittsburgh get destroyed via the Vikings running attack and play action that followed. It was an ugly game all around but it showed this team’s mentality of going down swinging. They could’ve given up being down 23-0 at halftime but they were able to put an effort together that almost got them into overtime. Losses are still counted no matter how you lose and that game might’ve put the nail in the coffin for this club.
They now turn their attention to the Titans, who are playing well despite some injuries. Derrick Henry has not played for a majority of this season but the Titans have been able to keep the running game going as they boast one of the best in the NFL. This will be a very difficult matchup for the home team to overcome on Sunday.
The Steelers defense has not been playing well in any aspect besides some pass rushing. Their turnover margins are down significantly and they can’t help their stale offense get shorter fields. The main concern is the run defense and their lack of play there. It has been a constant issue and that is an uncommon trend for the black and gold when you look at the team’s history.
