Let the record show that the Steelers are a much better team at home...usually. The record also shows that not only is Ben better at home, he is nearly unbeatable at Heinz Field in prime time games. With that in mind, is tonight the night the Steelers offense breaks out?
Also interesting that NBC/NFL Network will use a lot of aerial camera shots tonight. That will bring a different look to a telecast. Is that to juice up faltering ratings, especially on Thursdays?
Our scouting report on the Titans will be with former NFL head coach Dave McGinnis. He is now the color commentator on their radio network, and he joins me at 1:30.
Last year, the Steelers had a banner rookie crop with 3 productive defensive starters. Now that we're into the second half of this season, how would you evaluate the Steelers 2017 draft class thus far?
The Penguins have started to score more goals, but barely more than they've allowed. As they prepare to play Ottawa tonight, they rank near the bottom in goals allowed this season. What's been the problem? Mark Madden will offer his thoughts at 12:30.
