Odds: Steelers by 6

A healthy Kenny Britt may be the difference between a Titans team that only scored a garbage time touchdown against Minnesota in Week 5, and a team that put up 44 points in a win over Detroit in Week 3.

No team in the league has an average point differential (-18.6 points per game) as wide as Tennessee, and their 36.2 points a game allowed is ridiculously high after five games.

All that being said, home teams are 13-3 in prime time this season, and the Titans (1-4) really have nothing to lose in this game.

It will be hard for them to replicate some of the poor performances they've had lately, and with a short week, the Steelers should expect anything and everything from Tennessee.

That doesn't mean Pittsburgh isn't in something of an urgent situation of their own. Trailing Baltimore by two wins and Cincinnati by one in the AFC North race, a slow start in arguably the most competitive division in football means they must win advantageous road games like this one. They watched Baltimore struggle at 1-4 Kansas City, they must be prepared - despite having little time to prepare for this game.

Expect this to be competitive, with the Titans going after big plays frequently. If the Steelers remained disciplined and land a few big plays of their own on both sides of the ball, they can win by two scores. If not, it could be the win of the Titans' floundering season.

Kickoff is set for 8:20 p.m. ET on NFL Network.
