    How much will the Titans try and blitz Roethlisberger?

    The Titans defense is one of the highest in the league in rushing 4 players at the Quarterback. Ben is one of the best in the league at executing the offense against 4 rushers. So, do the Titans dare try to blitz Big Ben tonight to create some pressure, rather than sitting back and dropping everybody else in coverage?

    It's kind of a pick your poison with Ben, if you manage to get him in 3rd and long he'll find a way to convert. If you give him 3rd and short they now have the capability of rushing for that 1st down or checking out and making a quick short pass that could go for big yardage.

    I'm interested to see how they defend the Steelers offense, and how much they commit to stopping the run with Mendy back.

    With Mendy running well, how can they afford to blitz? But if they do, and Ben extends the play the way he does, Wallace and Brown will have big, big numbers.

    I think there will be a Heath Miller siting in the end zone too.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    That's what I think as well, if you blitz you are leaving your secondary wide open with Wallace, Brown, Heath, and Manny Sanders. If you're gonna blitz you damn well better get there. Had Mendenhall not have come back yet, they're gameplan probably would have changed.

    This is a big rivalry that goes way back, expect some cheap shots and fights tonight.

    I think they will pick their spots not to blitz Ben, but more to run blitz to clog holes. Key here is recongition by Ben and adjust the play / clocking assignments accordingly.
