Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has something to cross off his football bucket list tonight as he has never beaten AFC opponents, the Titans or the Oakland Raiders on the road.

Le’Veon Bell should be a factor in primetime as Tennessee has given up 136.6 rushing yards this season which is good for 29th in the National Football League.

Since becoming the Steelers’ defensive coordinator in 2004, Dick LeBeau‘s crew is 18-2 against rookie quarterbacks. The last rookie the defense took care of was Blake Bortles of the Jaguars in Week 5 as they intercepted Bortles twice, and did not surrender a touchdown.

Injuries for the Steelers: Out – Steve McLendon, Troy Polamalu, Ryan Shazier, Ike Taylor, and Shamarko Thomas. Listed as probable are Cortez Allen, Brett Keisel, Arthur Moats, and Ross Ventrone.

It will be rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger‘s third start of the season for Tennessee. The 6-foot-5, 224-pound signal caller completed 16 of 27 passes for 179 yards, one interception, and one touchdown last week against the Ravens. The fourth-round draft pick from LSU has three touchdowns and three interceptions in his three appearances for the Titans.

More from Ben Roethlisberger

When the Titans want to eat up some of the clock, the ground attack is led by rookie Bishop Sankey. The 5-foot-10, 209-pound running back has 357 yards on 91 carries and one touchdown.

One of the leaders of the Titans defense is Michael Griffin, who has 47 solo tackles and assists on 16 more stops for a total of 63 tackles. The 6-foot, 215-pound safety has also contributed two interceptions and three sacks this season.

Injuries for the Titans: Questionable – Defensive tackle Sammie Hill, running back Dexter McCluster, tight end Delanie Walker, running back Leon Washington, and cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson.

My Prediction: Pittsburgh Steelers 31, Tennessee Titans 20

Up Next: The Black and Gold enjoy their bye week before returning to action at Heinz Field on Sunday, Nov. 30 when they take on Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints (4-6). Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on FOX.
