Tennessee Titans vs Pittsburgh Steelers Prediction
Two undefeated teams coming off great offensive performances signals the possibility of a high-scoring encounter and therefore victory for either side will be decided by the impact made by their defenses.
The Steelers might have an advantage in that area, as their defense has kept all offenses they've faced so far under 30 points and have kept all running backs under 80 rushing yards this season.
