Who plays on Thursday Night Football in Week 11?

On Thursday out at Heinz Field, the National Football League is bringing us an AFC matchup between the Tennessee Titans and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Their O/U trends are 0-4 in their last 4 Thursday night games, 1-7 in their last 8 games on the grass, 1-5 in their last 6 games vs. a team with a winning record, 1-4 in their last 5 November games and in their last 5 games following an ATS loss, 20-41-1 in their last 62 games vs. AFC, 15-35-1 in their last 51 games overall, and 16-37-1 in their last 54 games following a win.

Like Pittsburgh, Tennessee has won their last four games in a row and are not to be taken lightly.

Tennessee also has probably the best rushing quarterback in the National Football League in Marcus Mariota.

On the year, Mariota has 1783 yards with seven touchdowns and six picks, and DeMarco Murray is the top Titans rusher on 433 yards and four touchdowns from 109 attempts.

Pittsburgh is off to a solid start as well; they're sitting at 7-2 right now. Rishard Matthews leads the Tennessee receivers on 513 yards and two scores off 36 receptions.

Nathan Peterman replaces Tyrod Taylor as Buffalo Bills quarterback in Week 11
Taylor, in his third year as Buffalo's starter, has thrown for 1,684 yards and 10 touchdowns against three interceptions. Peterman was selected in the fifth round of the draft after splitting his college career at Pittsburgh and Tennessee.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are a flawless 8-0 straight up in their last eight games played at night.

Those sort of stats are even more remarkable considering Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown now lead the league in rushing and receiving yards respectively.

It would be fair to think that two teams who have won four games on the spin and sit atop their respective divisions would have reason to feel good about themselves but the Steelers and Titans will kick off on Thursday night not in particularly buoyant mood. The Steelers victory was thanks to a late-game rally and a magnificent 32-yard pass to Antonio Brown which led to a 33-yard field goal by Chris Boswell as the clock hit zero. As a result, Pittsburgh is 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS over its last four games. Despite their 6-3 record, five of Tennessee's games have been decided by a single score this season. This Steelers game will be their final stop through the division this year and their toughest test so far.

Sportsbook US players who bet on last season's action will recall that the Pittsburgh Steelers came within a game of competing for Super Bowl glory.

Like the Steelers, Tennessee enters Thursday night's game on the heels of a four-game winning streak. Pittsburgh plays MUCH better at Heinz Field, though, and with the short turnaround they're probably the more sensible pick here. The Titans will attempt to extend their winning streak against the tough Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday Night Football (5:25 p.m. PT/8:25 p.m. ET, KGW-8, NBC, NFL Network).
