Steelers vs. Titans NFL Pick – Preseason Week 3admin
In Nashville, Tennessee Titans and Also the Pittsburgh Steelers Match From the game on Sunday in Nissan Stadium.
The Steelers head into Week 3 of the preseason with an ideal resume of 2-0. They have wins over Chiefs and the Buccaneers. Following a quarterback struggle, the unit has been the most notable for the Steelers last week. They held a Kansas City offense that was great in check. Sure, the Patrick Mahomes barely playedbut it is not like Chad Henne is horrible. He is a veteran who knows his way.
I am going to need to admit that it wasnt a wonderful day for anyone. Josh Dobbs threw an interception in the red zone that looked like a rookie error. Thats a mark against him in his battle against Mason Rudolph. Dobbs got third-team repetitions week. Rudolph did not do anything but the ball was protected by him passed for 77 yards on passing.
Rudolph has more upside down than Dobbs. This is a quarterback contest, but I believe that really is Rudolphs job. To get an undrafted rookie out of Samford, Devlin Hodges has seemed impressive behind Dobbs and Rudolph. Hes making him difficult about the Steelers to cut at. Hodges will find his way on the practice group.
The Steelers went against the Chiefs because their starting QB in Week 2 with Rudolph. Ben Roethlisberger is expected to get the start in this one. It will be his first game action of the preseason after hanging out 2 and Week 1. Dobbs is very likely to find a look since Rudolph obtained first-team repetitions a week. Dobbs is going to have to impress with this chance. The job and another stupid mistake might be Rudolphs.
There are not any doubts concerning the quarterback rotation in Tennessee. It is among the decisions to be made from the NFL. Marcus Mariota is the starting QB, although Ryan Tannheill follows in the backup place. Logan Woodside, former Toledo Rocket and AAF alumni, is back and is only hoping to grab onto a roster or practice squad. Mariota will start Week 1 barring an accident. Knock on wood.

Mariota is easily becoming the nod over Tannehill, So far as Week 1 is concerned. Now, Mariota and how Tannehill perform is irrelevant. However, its definitely worth mentioning that Tannehill is going to be breathing down the neck of Mariota if he struggles. Not only did the Titans acquired Tannehill to be his copy, but it is a means to drive on Mariota. He did not function the way the Titans wished past season.
Mariota was not terrible, in which he has to lift up everyone around 24, but he is at a stage in his career. Than they are, make them players that are much better. Mariota passed for 8 interceptions and 11 touchdowns with 357 yards. He should be by today, so there are not likely to be any excuses in 2019.
With respects to this preseason game, the Titans are basically going to have just two quarterbacks playing nearly 3 quarters of play. Tannehill is not the ideal signal caller youll find in the group, but hes got lots of expertise as a QB in Miami.
Hes acted as a rookie for much more of his livelihood. Tannehill ought to be in a position to move the ball against copies when he receives the phone in this contest. Then this isnt likely to make his job being nervous regarded by Mariota if he does not. Tannehill is going to take over in this one from the second-half or near the conclusion of the first-half. By then, the Steelers arent going to be having their defenders on the market.
On the Steelers side, they will get Roethlisberger out there for close to a half, and then a quarterback conflict between Dobbs and Rudolph. There is a good chance that two of them are going to be able to put some forces.
Together with Tannehill and Mariota, thats four competent quarterbacks playing tonight. And when Hodges gets mop-up responsibility for the Steelers, hes been playing in the preseason. There seems to be some value on the OVER in this edition of Sunday Night Football at Nashville Having a posted total of 40.
