The Pittsburgh Pirates are set to visit Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee for a Week 3 preseason clash against the Tennessee Titans. The Pittsburgh Steelers come into this matchup with a 2-0 record, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning their recent game against the Kansas City Chiefs, 17-7. 2nd-year pro Mason Rudolph has looked like a true replacement for Big Ben, and he showed that against the Chiefs as he connected on 10 of his 15 attempts for 77 yards. James Washington has continued to develop into one of the top WRs for the Steelers, and he did that once again with 78 yards on 4 receptions.
The Pittsburgh Steelers were very good on the defensive side of the ball against the Kansas City Chiefs as they held them to only 7 points. LB Tyler Matakevich led the way from the middle of the defense for the Steelers as he contributed 7 tackles. Bud Dupree will be one of the top pass rushers for Pittsburgh, and he capitalized on his small amount of playing time with 2 sacks. Mike Hilton was strong in the secondary for the Steelers as he contributed 2 pass deflections.
The Tennessee Titans come into this matchup with a 1-1 record, and they will be looking to rebound after dropping their recent game against the New England Patriots, 22-17. Ryan Tannehill could very well be the starting QB Week 1 for the Tennessee Titans, and he had another big showing against the Patriots as he connected on 7 of his 11 attempts for 84 yards and a TD. TE Cole Wick is trying to earn a spot on the roster for Tennessee, and he was able to contribute 3 receptions for 42 yards against New England.
The Tennessee Titans will need to be much better on the defensive side of the ball if they want to continue picking up wins this preseason as they allowed the Patriots to score 22 points. Rookie LB David Long Jr. led the way for the Tennessee Titans as he contributed 8 tackles. Isaiah Mack was able to get in the New England backfield and contribute the lone sack of the game for the Titans. Logan Ryan has already solidified his role in the starting lineup for the Titans, but he played well in his small amount of playing time as he pitched in an interception.

Free Betting Pick: Tennessee Titans -1
The home team has covered the spread in 4 of the last 5 meetings between the Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers. The Tennessee Titans look like they have a real QB battle on their hands with Ryan Tannehill and Marcus Mariota, so I expect the coaching staff to continue to give extensive looks to these two veterans. The Titans should once again be a fringe playoff team, and while they have some solid starters plugged in their lineup, they do need to start filling their roster with some depth. The home team has had a ton of success this preseason, and I expect similar trends to follow here. Final Score Prediction, Tennessee Titans win and cover ATS 24-17.
