Titan’s Triumphant Turn with Will Levis

NFL Team Tennessee TitansThe Titans certainly bounced back in style against Atlanta, with rookie quarterback Will Levis leaving an indelible mark in his NFL debut. He threw an impressive four touchdowns, leading the Titans to secure their highest score (28 points) since 2021, ending their two-game losing streak. Statistically, the Titans average 18.9 points per game, with an average of 296.6 total yards, which includes both their passing and rushing yards. Defensively, Tennessee has been formidable, allowing only 20.0 points per game and managing to accumulate 21 sacks and two interceptions for the season.


Pittsburgh’s Primetime Potential

NFL Team Pittsburgh SteelersThe Steelers experienced a setback against Jacksonville, being outplayed in terms of yardage and also struggling with third-down conversions. To add to their woes, their starting QB, Kenny Pickett, suffered a rib injury, paving the way for Mitch Trubisky to step in. The Steelers have had their fair share of challenges this season, particularly on the offensive side. They score an average of 16.1 points per game and have a total yard average of 271.7. Their defense also hasn’t been rock-solid, giving up 21.0 points per game.



The Steelers’ quarterback situation for Thursday remains a mystery, as Pickett’s participation is yet to be confirmed. However, given the recent performance of both potential quarterbacks, bettors might be hesitant to back the Steelers. Considering the current spread at +2.5, there seems to be an enticing value on the Titan’s ML at +135 on BUSR’s NFL Odds.

It’s challenging to predict Levis’s next game after his outstanding debut, but the potential synergy between Derrick Henry and DeAndre Hopkins hints at an explosive offensive output from the Titans. Given their offensive prowess and their commendable defense in the red zone, the Titans seem poised for victory against the struggling Pittsburgh offense.
