NFL Predictions: Titans vs. Steelers to be Low-Scoring for Bettors? 11/14/17

NFL Predictions: Titans vs. Steelers to be Low-Scoring for Bettors? 11/14/17

You get to take the pads off, and practice is a little bit lighter. But your body still isn't ready to go through the trauma of playing another football game.

Ben Roethlisberger joined us on The #1 Cochran Ben Roethlisberger Show to talk about winning ugly and how it was good to come out with a win it that situation as opposed to what happened when they went into Chicago earlier this year. You'd never hear this kind of rant, on day one of preparation no less, from Tom Brady about having to play on Thursday. It's hard to execute sharp game plans when you're still exhausted. You're going to go out there and compete and give everything you have, because that's what you do.

The Steelers quarterback isn't the first player this season to call on the NFL to put an end to Thursday football. In an unfortunately irony, Sherman went down with a season-ending torn Achilles in last week's Thursday night tilt. At least seven players left the game with an injury, including two starting players for the Cardinals.

ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under for Thursday night's game is sitting at 44 points, up slightly from the original number of 43.5. Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger became the latest notable player this month to chastise the NFL's Thursday night calendar. "They just need to get rid of this game, I think".

But when it mattered most, Roethlisberger played his best ball, methodically moving around and buying just enough time to pick apart the Colts' young secondary. It's so tough on guys. "You're beat up, you're banged up".

"Both teams are going through it, so I'm not just speaking on ours", Roethlisberger said.

Perhaps that 17-point, fourth-quarter rally will spark this offense into life as they head into a favourable-looking second half of the campaign that sees them play five of their remaining seven games at Heinz Field but improvement is required ahead of hosting New England on December 17. You still are dealing with bumps and bruises and things continue to build up throughout the season. You can't throw against Pittsburgh either, as the Steelers have the No. 2 pass defense in league. Bell, the league's No. 3 rusher, finished with 80 yards on 26 carries, and Roethlisberger wound up 19 of 31 for 236 yards after being picked off on the second play of the game.
