The Steelers and Titans get it kicked off at 1pm in the Steel City. Both teams enter with high hopes and know that a win is but a simple step to a greater goal while a loss is a monster step backwards. Key Injuries Tennessee – LB Xavier Gooden is out and RB Quinn Johnson is doubtful. LB Akeem Ayres is questionable but did practice this week. Pittsburgh – LB Jarvis Jones and FB Will Johnson are probable while Heath Miller and Le’Veon Bell are listed as doubtful and out respectfully. Trends – Steelers have won three straight games at home against the Titans. Mike Tomlin has is 6-0 in home openers. Steelers Keys to Victory – Limit Chris Johnson, especially on the cutback. Protect Ben Roethlisberger. Create turnovers.
