Looking backward at the past several road games, it's been quite a while since the Steelers have looked good away from Heinz Field.

Oakland 34 Steelers 31
Denver 31 Steelers 19
Denver 29 Steelers 23
Steelers 13 Browns 9
Niners 20 Steelers 3
Steelers 13 Chiefs 9

November 13th of last year, the Steelers beat the Bengals 24-17 in Cincinnati, their last road win over a quality opponent. The only road game in which the won by more than a TD was a 32-20 win over Arizona, who was 1-4 at the time.

Anyone expecting a cake walk tomorrow night may want to rethink that position.

and with Locker out, some of those dudes might be looking to play with some pride perhaps?

Like I've said before, I won't start feeling better until I see a CONVINCING road win. I expect them to beat the Titans, on the road, if they are going to be a contender. A loss will drudge up the same type of feeling Steeler Nation had post-Raiders game.

Agree 100%. Would love to see us curb stomp this team, and frankly, a SB contender does just that. I would expect SF, Atlanta, or Houston to roll this team.

Not saying those teams are immune to laying an egg now and then, but between the three I just mentioned, I count impressive road wins vs. Jax, Denver, KC, SD, GB, and NYJ.

More numbers. The Titans' four losses are by an average of 24 points. They have surrendered 30+ in every single game.

This *should* be an easy win. Hope it is.

You obviously have not watched the Steelers very long.

1. It's PRIME TIME football. The Steelers usually always some how make a game of it even against the shitiest of teams.

2. We always play down to other teams levels. Its been a consistent pattern for years now.

3. Its a road game and this team has been seriously weak on the road.
