In the last several years, the National Football League has implemented the inclusion of Thursday night games into the fold of the regular season. For the time being, Roethlisberger just joins a growing list of players against having Thursday night games.

While fans may have been unimpressed by the style in which Pittsburgh won last weekend, the Las Vegas oddsmakers still seem to like what they see in the Steelers.

The Steelers will be hosting the Titans on Thursday night this week, and let's just say that Big Ben isn't happy about the fact that he has to play in the game. Walker and Mariota are also questionable to make an appearance in this game so the odds are definitely going in favor of the Steelers even if the Titans do come out on top in the rivalry between these two.

"It's awful. They need to get rid of this game, I think".

After a 24-20 win against Cincinnati on Sunday, Tennessee now has its longest winning streak, five games, since 2009. Just play Mondays and Sundays. It's so tough on guys. Both teams are going through it, so I'm not just speaking on ours. You still are dealing with bumps and bruises and things continue to build up throughout the season.


With more players jumping onto the wagon of disapproval, the National Football League could begin to take a closer look at the situation and may consider some alterations to schedules to meet these rising concerns. It's a tough thing to do.

The entire premise of TNF could have been summed up with Roethlisberger's last comment: at the end of the day, the players need to do what the league says.

Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley can't be pleased with the way the offense has played this season.

For the season, the Steelers are 5-4 against the spread and 1-8 versus the over. If the NFL Network is part of your cable package, you can also live stream the game through the NFL app on XBox, Apple TV, or Roku device on your TV. It's not that he's wrong, it's that he's focused too much on the problems with the game instead of just accepting that he needs to deal with something that's really beyond his control as an individual player.
