What should we anticipate from the Titans under Will Levis?
With four touchdown passes in his NFL debut, rookie quarterback Will Levis helped Tennessee regain its confidence against Atlanta on Sunday. The Titans ended a two-game losing streak with their highest point total (28) since 2021. Both groups collaborate

ughed the ball up just once, but Tennesee won the time of possession battle with six sacks.

 

In addition to averaging 296.6 total yards (24th), which includes 180.7 passing yards (29th) and 115.9 rushing yards (13th), the Titans rank 23rd in terms of points scored per game (18.9).

Pittsburgh, are you primed for prim
etime?
In their game against Jacksonville on Sunday, Pittsburgh lost steam as they were outgained 377–261 and limited to 3-for–12 on third down. In addition, backup quarterback Mitch Trubisky (15-for-27 for 138 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions) had to play in the second half for the Steelers after starting quarterback Kenny Pickett (10-for-16 for 73 yards) suffered a rib injury. This season, the Steelers have suffered three double-digit losses.

Pittsburgh ranks 29th in terms of scoring per game with 16.1 and 31st in terms of average total yards, with 192.0 passing yards (ranked 25th) and 79.7 rushing yards (ranked 28th) as well. It finds the end zone on 45.4% of its red zone drives and converts 35.0% of its third downs (24th).

 

The Steelers surrender 382.6 total yards (30th), including 245.4 passing yards (24th) and 137.1 rushing yards (28th), along with 21.0 points (17th). This season, they have seven interceptions and 22 sacks. In the red zone, Pitt’s opponents have scored touchdowns on 50.0 percent of their trips and converted 42.2 percent of their third-down attempts (23rd).

 

Although Pickett is a game-time decision, the Steelers haven’t decided who will start at quarterback on Thursday. However, neither signal-caller performed well in Sunday’s loss to the Jaguars. In any case, I’m staying away from the Steelers and am optimistic about the Titans ML at +130, especially with the spread at +2.5.

 

Although it’s difficult to predict Levis’ second performance after such a successful NFL debut, I’m going with Tennessee because, with Derrick Henry and DeAndre Hopkins, I think their offence has more big-play potential. With a well-balanced game plan, the star veteran duo will lead the Titans’ offence to victory, outscoring the pitiful Pittsburgh offence.

 

In 65.4 percent of their red zone trips, the Titans’ defence keeps their opponents out of the end zone thanks to their formidable red zone offence. On TNF, wager on the guests to win on the road!
