NFL preview capsule: Steelers at Titans

TONIGHT

Steelers (2-2) at Titans (1-4)

When/where: 8:20; LP Field, Nashville

TV/radio: NFL Network; 98.7-FM, 1010-AM

Line/OU: Steelers by 51/2; 43

There's still plenty of time for the Steelers to pull things together and win their requisite 10 or 12 games, though their schedule has a fair number of pitfalls remaining. Will tonight's game be one of those? It's a short week and they're on the road. But the truth is the Titans offense just doesn't have the firepower to make enough plays against a Steelers defense that's still plenty good. Titans QB Matt Hasselbeck, starting a second straight game for Jake Locker (dislocated left shoulder), is less mobile and will be more vulnerable to the pass rush, though LB LaMarr Woodley is slowed by a strained right hamstring. The Steelers got a lift when RB Rashard Mendenhall returned from injury Sunday and had 101 yards from scrimmage.

Stephen F. Holder's pick: Steelers 29, Titans 16
