Pittsburgh Vs Tennessee Week 11 Monday Night Football Betting OddsNoah Williams
Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and the Pittsburgh Steelers head into Monday Night Football in search of their seventh victory of the 2014 season tonight when they visit the Volunteer State to take on Zach Mettenberger and the Tennessee Titans in the first annual Berger Bowl. A win against the Titans would not put the Steelers at the top of the AFC North vaulting them over the Bengals who beat the Saints yesterday.
If Pittsburgh were to lose, that would put the Steelers at the bottom of the division limping into their late season bye week.
The Tennessee Titans have lost seven of their last eight games.
This matchup is the 73rd time the two teams have met during the regular season dating back to the days when the Titans were better known as the Houston Oilers. It also marks the seventh time they have gotten together on Monday Night Football. Their previous MNF matchup was in 2001 with Pittsburgh winning 34-7.
Last week, Pittsburgh was shocked by Rex Ryan, Michael Vick and the New York Jets 20-13 at MetLife Stadium, while Tennessee lost to the Ravens 21-7 in Baltimore.
This week the Steelers are 5.5 point road favorites over the Titans with a game total of 45.5. Click here for more NFL betting odds.

Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell have combined for more than 1,500 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns, while rookie Martavis Bryant, in limited snaps, has hauled in 14 passes for 310 yards and a whopping six touchdowns.
Just in case the Steelers have problems putting up points against, since 2004 defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau’s defense is 18-2 against rookie quarterbacks, including Blake Bortles of the Jaguars in Week 5 as they intercepted Bortles twice, and did not surrender a touchdown.
Titans QB, Mettenberger is completing 61.6 percent of his passes for three touchdowns and three interceptions. Mettenberger has thrown a pick in all three of his games but has shown glimpses of promise in each of his outings. The Titans, however, need to open the purse strings to surround him with more talent if this franchise wants to compete.
