Titans @ Steelers 2017

Kickoff:

Doors open at: 
11 A.M.
Hey Yinz Guys: 

The games are 60 minutes long; it only matters that you lead at the end.  The Steelers may have been a little too literal with that this past weekend.  For most of the game, it appeared that the Black and Gold were still on the bye week.  The team finally woke up in time to earn the last second win.  A quick week is ahead of us, so come on out for all of the action…

The Titans come to tahn for a Thursday night game against the Stillers.  This marks the first of four straight evening games for the Black and Gold.  Currently, the Titans are tied for first place in the AFC South and are coming off a last-minute victory over the Bungles.

A number of familiar faces will be with the Titans in Heinz Field, as several former Steelers coaches and players are on the Titans staff.  Coming back to the Burgh are Titans Head Coach Mike Mullarkey, Defensive Coordinator Dick LeBeau, Offensive Line Coach Russ Grimm, Linebackers Coach Lou Spanos, Secondary Coach Deshea Townsend and Assistant Defensive Line Coach Keith Willis. There are sure to be a number of emotional reunions this week.

The Steelers went to Indianapolis this weekend and the fans, including the SFOMers who attended, did not leave disappointed.  A last second 20-17 victory over the Colts was a game that that looked like the Stillers hit the snooze button for most of it.  This game resembled the Bears game from earlier this season for most of it, only with a different result.  It even had a blocked extra point that almost led to a conversion, were it not for the hustle of Jordan Perry and Jesse James, stopping the Colts inside the Steelers 5-yard line.  This was the first the game this season where the Steelers had all of the original 22 starters on board, and probably the last, as a couple of injuries hit the Steelers.

It is a short week so get out here on Thursday and watch the Steelers!
