Who do ya'll think will win? I think the Titans will win a close game, but this one really could go either way in my opinion.

Re: Pitt @ Tenn Gameday Thread 9/19/10
I can't even venture to guess who will win. The Steelers have had a hard enough time beating them with Ben, so today is just going to be that much more difficult.

I know every man has come to play with a chip on his shoulder though, and they are ready to kick some ass!

Gonna be a good one for sure!

You can listen to the game online as well here!

You don't want to rely solely on us for the play by play. :chuckle:

Re: Pitt @ Tenn Gameday Thread 9/19/10
Antonio Brown will dress and return kickoffs - my bet is Tomlin sticks with Randle El to return punts in a road game

Keenan Lewis also suits up but only because Worlds, who had a great showing on special, teams last week, is hurt (again:mad:)

Ed.B. of the P-G said it is brutally hot in Nashville - something to consider with the Steelers wearing their black jerseys today
