Tennessee Titans @ Pittsburgh
Sunday, September 8, 2013. CBS at 1 p.m.
Titans 2012 Record: 6-10
Steelers 2012 Record: 8-8
Steelers have done well in their home openers. They've won 10 in a row. That impressive start happens to be the longest active streak in the NFL. Also impressive, Roethlisberger is closing in on 30,000. In addition, Coach Tomlin is 6-0 in home openers.
Rookie RB Le'Veon Bell has been ruled out for Sunday's game. Isaac Redman is expected to start at running back. TE Heath Miller is still listed as doubtful. David Johnson will likely get the start in place of Miller.
While the offensive line remains a mystery, overall it's healthier than last year's line while anchored well by the return of RG DeCastro and RT Marcus Gilbert.
It's important the Steelers get off to a good start. Their schedule does not get any easier with a trip to Cincinnati for week 2. That game is followed with the Bears at home on Sunday, September 22 at 8:30 p.m.
