The Pittsburgh Steelers turn around on a short week for some Thursday Night Football action in Week 9. This will be their third of four primetime games for the 2023 season and their first of two Thursday Night games.
After falling at home to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 8, Mike Tomlin's team sits on a 4-3 record. In terms of their record, they are currently in a three-way tie with the Browns and Bengals in the AFC North, while the Ravens sit a game-and-a-half ahead at 6-2.
If the Steelers lose this week and both the Browns and Bengals win, Pittsburgh would have gone from first place entering their bye week all the way to last place in the division. Tomlin knows that he can't afford to let this happen, but it won't be an easy contest tonight on Thursday Night Football. Here's what you need to know.

What to watch for in Steelers vs. Titans game
The Titans were looking to sell assets ahead of the trade deadline, but they might have changed their mind if they knew how good rookie QB Will Levis would look in his first-ever NFL game. Last week, Will Levis entered the game in the first quarter and replaced quarterback Malik Willis. Levis would go on to throw for 4 touchdowns and 0 interceptions on 29 attempts in a win over the Atlanta Falcons.
This will be a battle of two former first-round round quarterbacks, and Kenny Pickett is still trying to prove to the fanbase that the Pittsburgh Steelers made the right decision drafting him in 2022. If Pickett can outperform Levis, this will be a good sign.
If Levis turns out to be a great quarterback, this will sting a bit, as the former Kentucky star was available to the Steelers twice in the 2023 NFL Draft. Pickett certainly needs to step up his game, but he will be asked to do so while dealing with a rib injury tonight.
This should be a good one, so make sure that you are logged into your Amazon Prime account and are ready to go at 8:15 p.m. ET for tonight's Week 9 AFC showdown on Thursday Night Football!
