NFL Week 5: 4 Keys to Titans-Steelers Game

The surprisingly 3-1 Tennessee Titans travel up to Pittsburgh to take on the wounded 2-2 Steelers, a matchup that has seen the two teams split their games against each other since 2008.

Ben Roethlisberger will be on the field but James Harrison won't be getting after Matt Hasselbeck as Harrison has a fractured orbital bone.

Max Starks has been re-signed by Pittsburgh, a move that sums up the teams' offensive line issues. Tennessee's strength on their defensive line is in the middle, a fact that may hurt the already-injured Rashard Mendenhall.

The game looks to be a defensive affair. The matchup boasts the No. 1 defense in the league—and I'm talking about the Titans. It may not matter if Roethlisberger makes plays, but it remains to be seen.

Here are the four crucial points for Sunday's 4 p.m. game.
