Update on Steelers Titans Game Postponed Due to Coronavirus
Defensively, the Steelers are giving up 19.3 points per game. They did a great job against the run in their last game, holding Houston to 29 yards, and will need to play well against the run if they want to win this game.
Tennessee Titans Preview
Like the Steelers, the Titans have won their first three games and will be trying to make it four in a row when they play on Sunday. Their opponents have a 1-8 record, so this will also be their first real test of the season.
Offensively, the Titans are averaging 26.7 points per game. They are averaging 262.7 passing yards and 129 rushing yards per game.
Ryan Tannehill has done well so far, throwing for 809 yards, six touchdowns, and one interception. Derrick Henry leads the team with 319 rushing yards and two touchdowns, while Corey Davis leads the team with 206 receiving yards and one touchdown.
Defensively, the Titans are giving up 24.7 points per game. They have given up 30 points in two consecutive games and will need to play better if they want to beat the Steelers.
The Steelers are favored to win this game by 1.5 points. The over/under on total points scored is 47.
The Titans have played well offensively, but their defense has been a liability so far. With the Steelers having more offensive talent than the three teams the Titans have defeated this season, Pittsburgh is the pick. Take the over as well in this game.
