What was the Steelers reward for coming back to beat the Eagles and move to 2-2?

Having to go on the road on a short week.

It sucks, but someone has to do it.

We're going to be without both LaMarr Woodley and Troy Polamalu, with Jason Worilds getting the start in place of the former and Will Allen starting in place of the latter.

Full list of inactives tonight:

Steelers - QB Charlie Batch, RB Jonathan Dwyer, OG Kelvin Beachum, NT Alameda Ta'amu, OLB Adrian Robinson, OLB LaMarr Woodley, SS Troy Polamalu

Titans - QB Jake Locker, RB Javon Ringer, WR Lavelle Hawkins, OT Mike Otto, OG Deuce Lutui, DT DaJohn Harris, LB Patrick Bailey

***Note: If you're wondering where TE Weslye Saunders is - he HAS completed his 4-game suspension, but the team is still exercising their roster exemption for him up to the deadline tomorrow, when he will properly rejoin the roster.

Matt Hasselbeck, our old friend from Super Bowl XL and the second oldest QB in the league these days, is getting the start for the Titans with Jake Locker injured. Is that good or bad for us?

Can he pull off some of that savvy-old-veteran magic that Peyton Manning and Carson Palmer channeled against us in both of our road losses this year? Or will the Titans sieve of a defense that has given up 30+ points in ALL of their games this season be their undoing once again?

Have at it guys.
