Ben Roethlisberger rails against Thursday Night Football

Adjust Comment Print

"Everyone who's played on Thursday night would say the same thing".

"Yeah, it's miserable. It's bad".

Just like the Steelers, they have made winning games look hard but head coach Mike Mullarkey has described his players as "resilient" and a touchdown from DeMarco Murray - his third of the game - just about sealed the deal against the Bengals.

The Steelers have won four of their last six games against the Titans with their last win against them coming in 2014 at LP Field in Nashville. We are a pretty beat up football team and to turn around in two days and go out play another physical football team is tough. Get ready for another low-scoring game Steelers game on Thursday night. Both teams are going through it, so I'm not just speaking on ours. When you go on such a short week, man, it's just not good. Even a week, you're still not fully recovered Sunday to Sunday. You still are dealing with bumps and bruises and things continue to build up throughout the season. I know the players voted on it, even though we were the only team to unanimously vote against the CBA. It's a tough thing to do. You can't throw against Pittsburgh either, as the Steelers have the No. 2 pass defense in league.

They trailed 17-3 halfway through the third quarter before eventually clunking into gear with offensive co-ordinator Todd Haley screaming expletives at one point from the sideline at quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

"Big Ben is Big Ben and he finds guys, and we've got him in second-and-long and he finds a guy, and then he scrambles around and finds Antonio Brown", Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. As understandable as his points are, the league probably isn't going to just get rid of Thursday night games any time soon.

KEY TRENDS: The underdog has cashed in six of the last seven meetings between these two teams and the Titans are 5-2 at the betting window in their last seven games versus the Steelers. The Steelers now hold the tiebreaker for having the better record against the conference (5-1 vs. 4-1).

While that works out to $132,000 per player, it makes more sense to consider the impact in light of proportionate cap burden.

"It's easier because that is something you have, it's been in since day one", said Roethlisberger.
