Well, football fans, it is finally here. The six-month void that we all must endure is over. The NFL has returned, and with it all the excitement and ceremony of the greatest sport in the world is back.
Neither the Steelers nor the Titans seem to be getting much in the way of positive press from the national media. Much of the Steelers lack of hype is due to the relative depth of the AFC North. The Steelers could be a very good team and still finish third this year against teams like the Baltimore Ravens and the Cincinnati Bengals.
But those teams don't matter this week. What matters is the Titans are coming to town and bringing with them one of the most electric running backs in the NFL in Chris Johnson. The Titans also bring a punishing, physical defense and re-tooled offensive line.
Let's take a close look at what the Steelers must do this week if they want to beat the Titans.
