We are used to viewing NFL action on Sundays? Well one Sunday match of the preseason in Week 3 and its going to be the final afternoon of Sunday NFL before Week 1 of the regular period. That is because all groups play Thursday of this exhibition program at Week 4. The Pittsburgh Steelers see the Tennessee Titans to close 3.
Both ended with two wins last regular season and missed the playoffs. The Titans could have promised a Wild-Card place if theyd won Week 17 at home vs. Indianapolis, however, the Colts were certainly exceptional and rolled to a 33-17 victory. Beginning Titans QB Marcus Mariota overlooked the match and Blaine Gabbert was awful in his location.
Pittsburgh had a Week 17 win over Cincinnati and a Baltimore home loss to Cleveland to choose the AFC North. Pittsburgh did its project using this franchise with a victory — with no prior star receiver Antonio Brown in his final act of defiance. The Ravens and a win over the Browns did not cooperate.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is 2-0 this year and a really solid 30-22 within his preseason livelihood despite not playing beginning QB Ben Roethlisberger yet. The Steelers played with their first two edging Tampa Bay 30-28 at Week 1 and then beating on Kansas City week. Going by the history of Tomlin, Big Ben must play a little . Joshua Dobbs and Mason Rudolph are competing together with covering the Steelers believing Rudolph is leading, for the project.
Titans coach Mike Vrabel is 1-1 this season — Tennessee has yet to win a house exhibition game in both seasons. The Titans dropped 22-17 in the home to New England but directed most of the game and then were Week 1 winners from Philadelphia 27-10. A TD pass won it for the Pats. Mariota and the Titans first-team crime has played four series so much but could the first half of this one.
Top running back Derrick Henry has to play in the preseason because of a calf injury but did come back to practice. Not clear if this means that he would go in this one. No. 1 tight end Delanie Walker broke his arm in Week 1 final year and had not played last week vs. the Patriots. He caught a TD pass. The Titans offense isnt the same with Walker, the best tight end in business history. Meanwhile, Mariotas copy Ryan Tannehill was fantastic this preseason using a 130.8 passer rating, completing 19 of 27 for 214 yards. Some believe he might slip the job at any stage this season out of Mariota.
These groups played in Week 3 however in Pittsburgh, in addition in the 2018 preseason. The Steelers won 16-6. Big Ben, making his preseason debut of18, was 11-for-18 for 114 yards and a touchdown in a few series. Mariota was and did not play with a lot. He missed for that which could have been a touchdown on Tennessees starting drive, wide-open Corey Davis.
Well take the Titans here as Im sure theyd like to end that house preseason losing series.
