AZ Central has the Titans finding a way to win on the road in Pittsburgh

The Arizona Republic Prediction: Titans 21, Steelers 15

Pittsburgh is slightly favored in this one, but the thought process is behind the performance by Will Levis last week. He was able to spark the Titans offense and create big plays with his arm. The Steelers offense is predictable and dull. Tennessee is coming off a big win last week and should be able to translate that success over to this week. Levis seems to be the answer and the Titans will try and ride that wave as long as they possibly can.

Winners and Whiners Prediction: Titans defeat the Steelers

There are plenty of reasons to pick against the Steelers in this one even with Pickett starting. The Titans rushing attack should be enough to get them close to the finish line. Add Levis performance last week as another reason to pick the away club in this one too. Both he and DeAndre Hopkins should be able to do just enough to draft them to the finish line. Sometimes it is sad to see how poorly these experts speak about Pittsburgh's football club.
