NFL Kickoff Open Thread - Titans vs. Steelers

New, comments

Tonight at 8:30 PM, the NFL Season kicks off when the Tennessee Titans travel to Heinz Field to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers. Last year, the Titans got the better of the Steelers in the regular season, and RB LenDale White threw a terrible towel to the ground before stomping on it. It was expected that the Steelers would have their chance at revenge against the Titans in the playoffs, but that never came to be. The Titans were upset by the Baltimore Ravens, and the Steelers ended up winning the Super Bowl.

One of these two powerhouse teams will start the season at 0-1, giving the other team a huge advantage early on in the season for the race to the best record in the conference. Can the Titans survive without Albert Haynesworth? Can the Steelers find traction in their ground game with Willie Parker and Rashard Mendenhall?

On top of all of that, if the Steelers lose, the Browns will have the rare opportunity to say the are half a game ahead of the Steelers! [/sarcasm]

NOTE: This is an open game thread for the Titans vs. Steelers game. We'll rarely do open threads for games that aren't Browns-related, but contests such as this one are the exception. If you're watching the game tonight and want to express your celebration every time Ben Roethlisberger throws a pick, let us know!
