    Notes for Titans game

    For the complete report see:

    • Pittsburgh looks for its seventh straight win on Kickoff Weekend,
    which is the longest in the NFL.
    • The Steelers look to improve to 39-32-4 all-time on Kickoff Weekend.
    • The Steelers are looking to improve to 39-30 all-time against the
    Tennessee franchise (formerly the Houston Oilers and Tennessee
    • Pittsburgh looks to improve 4-3 against the Titans in Pittsburgh since
    the team relocated in 1997.
    • The Steelers look to improve to 4-1 all-time in season openers
    against the Tennessee/Houston franchise.
    • The Steelers look to improve to 10-1 in primetime games under thirdyear
    head coach Mike Tomlin.

    QB Ben Roethlisberger
    • Needs 26 yards passing to reach 15,000 passing yards in his
    career, becoming just the second QB (Terry Bradshaw) in team history
    to accomplish the feat. Roethlisberger currently has 14,974 passing
    • Needs two pass completions to move into second place on the
    team’s all-time list ahead of Kordell Stewart (1,190). Roethlisberger
    currently has 1,189 career pass completions.
    WR Hines Ward
    • Needs one touchdown to give him 454 career points, which would
    move him into sixth place on the team’s all-time scoring list ahead of
    Norm Johnson (452 career points).
    RB Willie Parker
    • Needs 11 rushing yards to reach 5,000 for his career, joining only
    Franco Harris (11,950) and Jerome Bettis (10,571). Parker currently
    has 4,989 career rushing yards.
    TE Heath Miller
    • Needs 68 receiving yards to give him 2,000 for his career, becoming
    just the fifth tight end in team history to eclipse the plateau. Miller
    currently has 1,932 receiving yards.
    • Needs four touchdowns to move into second place ahead of Eric
    Green (24) on the team’s all-time list for tight ends. Miller currently
    has 21 career touchdown receptions.

    Who to Root For
    My personal addition, because every game counts. Week 1 isn't over on Thursday night, there are quite a few games that could effect the Steelers down the road and it's always more fun to watch a game when you are rooting for one team. Basically we want NFC teams to beat their AFC opponents, and all division teams to lose. Root against the Patriots because they are the Patriots. Around the league, who to root for Week 1:

    Steelers v Titans
    Dolphins v Falcons
    Broncos v Bengals
    Vikings v Browns
    Chiefs v Ravens
    Jets v Texans
    Buffalo v New England
    Chargers v Raiders

    I'd say all but the last bullet point will be accomplished on Thursday night. Should be a historic evening ...
