Steelers vs. Titans: 5 Things We Learned from Thursday Night Football
Health a Major Issue with the Steelers
Troy Polamalu Is Pittsburgh's Most Important Player on Defense
Roethlisberger Is the All-Time Leading Passer
Titans Defense Still in Trouble
Chris Johnson Is Slowly Coming Back into Form
Coming in to Thursday, Chris Johnson averaged 2.2 yards per carry with no touchdowns on the season.
Johnson did show some signs of waking up against the Steelers, though, as he managed to gain 91 yards on 19 carries.
Is this a one-game aberration or a sign of things to come?
Next week the Titans (who rank 30th in the league in rushing) face the Buffalo Bills. With 10 days off, this would be a great matchup for Johnson to maintain the momentum from Thursday's game. Buffalo is ranked 30th against the run, and its defensive line has been much-maligned this season.
Fantasy owners, if ever there was a week to start Chris Johnson, it's next week.
Now that Johnson seems to have returned to form, it's likely it will last for at least one more game, especially against the Bills.
