Why the Titans can cover

Tennessee found its footing through the air in Week 8 and will try to continue that with Will Levis at quarterback. The rookie from Kentucky made his first career start against the Atlanta Falcons and threw for 238 yards and four touchdowns without an interception. Levis became only the third player in NFL history with four passing touchdowns in his debut, and his ability to avoid mistakes is key for a Tennessee offense that has only eight turnovers in even games.

The Titans are also potent on the ground behind Derrick Henry, averaging 4.5 yards per carry this season, and have an established star on the outside to make life easier on Levis. Five-time Pro Bowl selection DeAndre Hopkins generated 128 receiving yards and three touchdowns last week, becoming the first player in three decades to catch three touchdown passes from a quarterback making his first NFL appearance. Hopkins now has 100-yard games with 12 different quarterbacks, tied for the most by any player since 1991, and ranks in the top four among active NFL players in career receptions (884), receiving yards (11,802), and receiving touchdowns (74). See which team to pick here.

Why the Steelers can cover

Pittsburgh's offense could find its footing in this matchup. The Steelers have lost only two fumbles this season, a top-three mark in the NFL, and Pittsburgh is in the top 10 with only eight turnovers. The Titans have only six takeaways on defense, ranking in the bottom five, and no team has fewer interceptions (two) than Tennessee. Mike Vrabel's team is also below-average in total yards allowed this season, and Pittsburgh has a dynamic weapon in budding standout George Pickens.

The talented wide receiver is averaging 86.3 receiving yards per game over the last three outings, including a pair of 100-yard games. Pickens is also No. 2 in the NFL in yards per reception (18.6) this season and has 522 yards and 20 first downs in seven games. Pickens has 12 plays of 20 or more yards in 2023, including the fifth-longest play (71 yards) in the league this season. He is a threat to create an explosive play on any touch and gives the Steelers more dynamism on offense. See which team to pick here.
