The nightcap on Saturday finds Tennessee in New England as the upstart Titans are looking for their second straight upset. Pittsburgh will get an opportunity at revenge on Sunday when it hosts the Jacksonville Jaguars, who smoked the Steelers 30-9 as a 7.5-point underdog back in early October of this year.
