There comes a point when your favorite team plays on Thursday Night Football when you are sitting there and realize, “Crap! The [insert team name here] play tonight!”

Well, that is the feeling most fans of the Steelers and Titans probably have, and because of the early games the experts who release weekly picks have submitted their picks for this prime time matchup at Heinz Field.

With that said, it is time to check in on those experts and see if they like Pittsburgh to hold serve at home, and advance their record to 8-2, or if they think the Titans can continue the trend of visiting teams winning on a short week, visiting teams have won 6 of 10 games so far this year on Thursday nights, and move their overall record to 7-3.

For the folks at CBS Sports, they like Pittsburgh returning home for only the fourth home game of the season. It is hard to believe, but the Steelers will play 5 of their last 7 games at the friendly confines of Heinz Field, and all of the experts at CBS are leaning towards the black-and-gold in this AFC affair.

A similar tune is being sung at ESPN, with all of their experts, who have submitted their picks, seeing the Steelers as predominant favorites in this Week 11 contest.

However, if there was a group of individuals who are certain to have at least one person go against the Steelers, it would be here at SB Nation. These haters typically never believe in Pittsburgh, but are surprisingly behind the Steelers in Week 11. In fact, only one expert believes the Titans will rise up and beat the Steelers on Thursday night.

These are only three websites, and so many more produce weekly expert picks. What about those? This is where our friends at NFL Pick Watch come in to lend a helping hand. NFL Pick Watch is a website which takes all NFL expert picks and puts them into one easy-to-read chart. According to them, 93-percent of NFL experts like the Steelers to win the game at Heinz Field in Week 11.

The experts have spoken, and are in support of the Steelers, but only time will tell who will leave Thursday night victorious. If the Steeler’s 2017 regular season has shown us anything, it is you can never truly tell what to expect from this team.
