It would seem Taylor Lewan is out for the rest of the season. We lost Devin Bush, and the Titans lost Taylor Lewan.

https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/30148029/tennessee-titans-lt-tyler-lewan-confirms-suffered-torn-acl

Should be potential for Watt and Co. to make Tannehill's life miserable on Sunday. Lewan is one of the best LTs in the league, no small loss for the Titans. Conversely we lost Devin Bush, but I would also venture to say that there wasn't much of a drop-off when Spillane took over. I don't know that Spillane has Bush's playmaking abilities and raw talent, but he filled in admirably. That's just one game though, will be interesting to see how he does starting a game.

I know both teams are 5-0 so that can work as a motivation, but I still fear we're not going to be fully focused as we should be because we just got a big win and we're playing the Ravens next week. Schedule wise this game comes in a bad spot for us.

imho the Titans have the #1 rushing attack in the AFC and Derrick Henry is the best RB the Steelers defense will face so far this season and the loss of Ty Lewan is a big loss for the Titans. l'm taking the hold the edge gap shooting Steelers defense front for the win in this match up.

if the Steelers offense can have a good day and put points on the board would really help because imho take out the Titans running game Tannehill is the weak spot.

this isnt the miami dolphins tannenhill. he has a 69.9 % completion and has thrown 13 TDs and just 2 picks. has only been sacked 5 times. and averaging 273 yards a game.
he had a 75% completion percentage with 3 tds and 0 picks and 0 sacks against the bills . he is no baker mayfield.

their passing game is wrapped around the running game and play action pass so take out their run game you take out most of their offense. imho you pressure and get some hits on Tannihill he turns into an interception machine. give him flash backs to this Miami Dolphins days titans run offense vs steelers run defense - Page 2 312503953

Eh, those sack numbers are going to go up come Sunday. Losing Taylor Lewan is going to hurt them, we're also likely the best group of pass rushers in the NFL, and the best the Titans are going to face.

That being said, I agree about Tannehill. He doesn't get the credit he deserves for how well he's been playing. He has weapons at TE, WR, and RB and knows how to use them.

Looking at the Titans schedule though their wins aren't super impressive (ours aren't that great from a strength of schedule standpoint either), but if you look at who they've played they've played a bunch of teams who don't have any good pass rushers. The Vikings without Everson Griffin or Danielle Hunter. The Texans with an older JJ Watt who gets double teamed constantly. The hapless Broncos (whom they barely beat), the Jacksonville Jaguars (another hapless squad whom they barely managed to beat). We'll see how real the Titans are when they come up against the best pass rush in the entire league.

All I'm going to say is if Tomlin can't get these guys fired up for this game against the only other 5-0 team in the AFC then FIRE HIS ASS! titans run offense vs steelers run defense - Page 2 1797695198
Seriously Derrick Henry is listed at 6'3" 248lb. This guy can hurt us if we let him. We need to stop him in the backfield like we did with Barkley. If we do that and force Tannehill to have to throw we stand a pretty good chance. In return we have to be able to run enough to keep their D honest and play solid on STs. Ben needs to be able to complete at least one long pass. I don't care if it's a RAC situation. I think this is the week that Claypool takes the top off of their defense.

and on the flip side of the team leading the league in sacks we have the team tied for first for giving up the least sacks.thats right. the titans are tied for first with only giving up 6 sacks. the titans lost a big chess piece and the steelers lost a big chess piece.

it may come down to who has the better backup.

Ty Sambrailo will be their starting left tackle
6'5 311ilbs from colorado state.
drafted 2nd round 2015 by denver 59th

this is promising. a second round draft choice who isn't a starter and traded from their drafting team after just 2 seasons to the falcons for a 5th rnd pick. was released after 3 years and signed with the titans this year. the guy has been a career backup with a 13 starts under his belt. mostly at RT. an underachiever or a very bad pick by denver.

Steelers offense scores an easy 30 points on the Titans defense and the Steelers running game grinds time off the clock and the Steelers defense harass the Titans offense all game long.

I agree with eff. Offense should score a lot of points. Stop Henry and I think we'll be alright.

From RAY FITTIPALDO at Post Gazette:

Right guard David DeCastro, who missed the Browns game with an abdominal injury, is expected to play, as is receiver Diontae Johnson, who also missed the Browns game with a back injury. Mike Hilton will miss the game

I would agree with you on both counts. I do like Johnson's skills though and if he can be on the field I think it makes covering the WRs even tougher.

Some interesting stats and his ideas on limiting Henry from an article by Dulac at Post Gazette:

Quote :
They want to limit Henry’s carries, keep him more around 15 rushes than the 33 he had in last week’s overtime game against the Texans. And the way to do that is limit the Titans’ possessions by extending their own.

The Steelers defense ranks first in the league in plays allowed (5.42) and time of possession (2:25) per drive and is second in yards per drive (26.40).

Offensively, they are second in the league in average time of possession (33 minutes, 22 seconds), but in the last three games they are No. 1, averaging 35:13. Their average touchdown scoring drive is 7.6 plays, 60.3 yards. Their average field-goal drive is 7.85 plays, 45 yards.

What does all that mean? It means that the Steelers recipe for limiting Henry lies not just with their defense, but with the offense’s ability to control the ball. And they want to do that with their slowly improving running game, which ranks ninth in the league with a 136.8-yard average.

this is what l'm talking about, Steelers work the ball down the field for long scoring drives and the defense get the Titans offense off the field quick as possible. Steelers offense beat a couple of man coverage match ups for the deep ball.

What will give when Titans' Derrick Henry meets Steelers No. 2 run defense?

Quote :
Stat to know: The Titans' offense has used play-action at the second-highest rate in the NFL since the start of 2019, and an NFL-high 47% of its passing yards in that span have come on play-action. Since Tannehill became the Titans' starter in Week 7 last season, his 92.1 QBR and 12.2 yards per attempt on play-action lead all NFL QBs, and his 15 TDs is tied with Kirk Cousins for the most in the NFL. But Pittsburgh's defense has been exceptional defending play-action, allowing the lowest QBR (38.9) and completion rate (57%) since the start of last season.
