    Just a theory, but maybe the defensive strategy for the entire second half, since we had the game won by halftime, was to prevent long passes and let the clock run.

    The Steelers defense is stout, it won't be a cake walk. I expect two run first offenses and two VERY stout defenses duking it out in a smash mouth football game. Low scoring, lots of turnovers (VY and Dixon)...

    Titans have the edge due to CJ-- 13-7 Titans

    ... and you guys beat them in overtime. Let's not act like you blew the roof off against a team that probably isn't going anywhere.

    Yeah, yall did well, especially stopping Turner for the most part, although he is no CJ... You are right on the money saying we will learn a lot more about our team next week than this we did week. Very interested in seeing how our D takes on Mendenhall, also with some key players returning from injury in our front seven. Titans come out on top by ten.

    In all seriousness though, I think it'll be a close game for a while, and we'll slowly pull away towards the end.

    Your defense will have to win this game for you.

    Either way, it looks like you guys will be at least 2-2 when Big Ben comes back. Can't ask for much more than that.

    It went on all game though... more in the second half, yes. But either way, they were getting big gains on those short passes which defeats the purpose of prevent.

    First, I'm not comparing the Titans to the Pats, yet.

    But when teams like the Pats, Colts, Saints blow away bad teams nobody second guessed them. I say lets take this as a stepping stone to what can be a good season.
